2022 Construction Projects


Foley Boulevard (CSAH 11) Railway Grade Separation

Project improvements include reconstruction of Foley Boulevard, from a 4-lane undivided roadway to a 4-lane divided roadway with turn lanes and multi-use trail, with an overpass at the Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) Railroad tracks. The project will improve public safety and reduce traffic congestion on CSAH 11 by constructing the bridge over the BNSF railway.  This project is scheduled to be completed by October 2022.

Update for the Week Ending July 1st:
The contractor worked on the rough grading of Foley Blvd from East River Road to the new bridge, and placed road base material.  Storm sewer along Foley Blvd was also installed along the westbound lanes.  Watermain for the future Coon Rapids Water Tower was installed perpendicular to Foley Blvd, near Coon Rapids Blvd.  Watermain work was also completed along East River Road near the north project limits.  The bridge contractor worked on installing concrete barrier along the eastbound and westbound lanes of the bridge.  Metal reinforcement was installed for the sidewalks on the new bridge.

Work scheduled for the week ending July 8th:
Next week, underground storm sewer is scheduled to continue on Foley Blvd.  Watermain work along East River Road is scheduled to begin; this work entails removing existing concrete encased pipe and replacing it with ductile iron pipe.  A water shutdown for adjacent residents and businesses is scheduled for this work.  This work will begin mid-week and will continue through the end of the week.  Grading crews are tentatively scheduled to return late in the week to place class 5 base material and remove the remainder of the excess material along Foley Blvd.  

Main Street / 125th Avenue (CSAH 14) Reconstruction from Harpers Street to Lexington Avenue (CSAH 17) 

This project proposes to expand the existing 2-lane roadway to a 4-lane divided roadway. Other project elements include installation of a storm drainage system, ADA enhancements, a multi-use trail, traffic signal system improvements, and other associated improvements.

Update for the Week Ending July 1st:
The contractor installed the 8’ bituminous trail along the south side of the project, installed pedestrian ramps at Lexington Avenue & North Lake Blvd, and installed underground signal conduit, in preparation of new signal system at North Lake Blvd. 
**Note the eastbound lane closure will be in affect until July 18th.  Please use the signed detour.  PLEASE be kind to residents in adjacent neighborhoods.  Speeding down local roads with children playing in the area is unacceptable. **

Work scheduled for the week ending July 8th:
Next week, the contractor will finish grading the slope and boulevard area on the south side of the project and install turf establishment.
