Roadwork Projects in Anoka County by Other Agencies
City of Anoka
East Main Street (CSAH 14) Utility Replacement/Installation Project from 7th Avenue (CSAH 7) to Wedgewood Drive NW in the City of Anoka
This project, led by the City of Anoka, will consist of various sanitary sewer installation and watermain installation. Much of the work will be done by directional boring, which will minimize the open trench excavation, but some open trenches will still be necessary. All work is scheduled to be completed under traffic. Traffic lanes will be restricted to a single lane in each direction once work begins, so drivers should expect minor delays. Work is scheduled to begin on Monday, June 12th and be completed by mid-July.
Ramsey County is going to perform a mill and overlay project along County Road J from Hodgson Rd to the bend at Ash St. The project will begin in June and carry through July. As part of the project, a detour will be established along Birch St and Hodgson Rd for approximately 2 weeks in July.
MnDOT has a major project upcoming on Interstate 94 between downtown Minneapolis and Brooklyn Center. Although the project is not geographically in Anoka County, it will impact those who use I-94 on their commutes between downtown Minneapolis and Anoka County. Therefore, MnDOT is reaching out to neighboring communities to keep them informed as well.
Use caution and drive safely. If possible, use alternate routes. Remember as you travel through a work zone to reduce your speed, adjust your lane position away from workers, and prepare for the unexpected. Allow extra time for your trip and if possible, use an alternate route. Projects may cause some inconvenience, but the benefits will be a safer and more efficient roadway system. Watch for road signs and articles in local newspapers to keep you informed. Your patience and cooperation is sincerely appreciated.
