125th Avenue (CSAH 14) Reconstruction from Radisson Road (CSAH 52) to Harpers Street NE in the City of Blaine 


– Minor turf restoration and work items remain to be completed. Paving that was completed last week is not up to the County or public's expectations. Anoka County is working to resolve this issue with the paving contractor.
Bunker Lake Boulevard (CSAH 116) from Crane Street NW to 500 feet east of Van Buren Street NE in the Cities of Andover and Ham Lake 


TRAFFIC CONTROL -  Bunker Lake Boulevard is now closed from just east of Prairie Road NW to just west of Goldenrod Street NW. Those who accessed Goldenrod Street NW, Anoka County Farms and the Bunker Hills Activity Center previously from the west, will now arrive from the east of those entrances and street. Those who wish to access the Copart property will continue arrive coming from the east of the entrance location. Access to County Parkway “A” will remain open as access will be available from Hanson Boulevard to Prairie Road NW. Jefferson Street NE will always remain open during the upcoming construction phases. Traffic from Terrace Road to the east end of the project limits has been shifted to the north side of Bunker Lake Boulevard as construction work has begun on the south side of the roadway.

TRAFFIC NOTE: Butternut Street NW will be open to traffic on Friday, May 26th after paving operations are completed. On Tuesday, May 30th, Goldenrod Street NW will be closed from 137th Lane NW to Bunker Lake Boulevard for the purpose of installing new sanitary sewer pipe and watermain that will service the Anoka County Parks Activity Center. This closure will be in place for approximately two weeks, depending on the weather. Residents in the Shadowbrook Development should utilize Butternut Street NW to exit and enter Bunker Lake Boulevard during this closure.

CONSTRUCTION SCHEDULE - Two layers of asphalt surfacing were placed this past week from a point just east of Goldenrod Street to the Copart entrance. With the completion of this paving sequence, traffic will be switched to these newly constructed lanes beginning on Friday, May 26th. After the traffic switch, dirt crews will begin removing the existing asphalt from Anoka County Farms to Goldenrod Street during the week of May 29th. On Tuesday, May 30th, the sewer crew will begin work on watermain and sanitary sewer installation on Goldenrod Street beginning at 137th Lane NW and continuing to work south, across Bunker Lake Boulevard. As stated earlier, this work will take approximately two weeks to complete and will require this portion of Goldenrod Street to be closed to through traffic. Crews continue with various concrete pours associated with the steel sheeting wall on the north side of Bunker Lake Boulevard. Various utility relocation and installation work continues Bunker Lake Boulevard, east of Jefferson Street NE.
