Hanson Blvd (CSAH 78) Reconstruction Project - Jay St/139th Ave to CSAH 18 (Crosstown Blvd)
An Environmental Assessment (EA) document has been developed that outlines the purpose of the project and the anticipated social, economic, and environmental impacts of the proposed action.
Through the analysis, coordination with affected agencies, public involvement, and comments received, Anoka County has determined that the proposed project improvements as described in the EA/EAW and the Findings of Fact and Conclusions (FOF&C) and Environmental Assessment Update (EA Update) that the project does not have the potential for significant environmental impact. On October 9, 2018, MnDOT approved the FOF&C/EA Update. On December 7, 2018, FHWA issued a Finding of No Significant Impact, thus concluding that an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) is not required. These decisions and determinations are supported by the full administrative record of the project, including the FOF&C and EA Update. Links to the environmental documents are provided below under Documents.
* Technical Advisory Committee Meetings (technical staff from the County and City)
* Agency Coordination Meetings (technical staff from local, regional, state and federal agencies)
* Presentations at City Council Meetings (Andover)
