Roadwork Projects in Anoka County by Other Agencies
The contractor that will do the work was selected and the project is expected to take about two months. This shortens the time that University will need to be closed from Lowry to 44th Avenue in Columbia Heights from 3.5 months and reduces each individual closure to about two weeks each, weather permitting.

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.
