Hanson Boulevard (CSAH 78) Railroad Bridge Overpass Project in the City of Coon Rapids

Lake Drive (CSAH 23) Frontage Road Improvement Project from Hamline Avenue North to Village Parkway in the Cities of Circle Pines and Lexington
UPDATE – This past week, crews completed constructing the stormwater drainage swales, located south of Lake Drive.  Topsoil was placed along concrete sidewalk and pedestrian ramps that were poured and paved last week.  Shaping and grading for the various frontage roads took place at various locations this week.  Work for the week of June 18th will consist of utility relocation, primarily Xcel Energy and CenturyLink, as they continue new pole and line installation on those service roads north of Lake Drive.  Dirt crews will also be working in these same areas, grading and placing class 5 aggregate base as the utilities are relocated.

125th Avenue NE (CSAH 14) from Opal Street to 4th Avenue in the Cities of Blaine and Lino Lakes
UPDATE  - Crews began the week by grinding the existing asphalt roadway into a gravel condition.  After shaping and compacting were completed, paving crews placed the first of two asphalt layers today (June 15th) on the driving lanes in each direction for the full length of the project.  For the week of June 18th, gravel will be placed and compacted on the shoulder portion of roadway.  Placement of the final layer of asphalt is tentatively scheduled to be placed during the week of June 25th.
