Highway 65 Safety and Mobility Corridor Study
MnDOT, in partnership with Anoka County and the cities of Ham Lake, Blaine and Spring Lake Park, began a far-reaching study of the Hwy 65 Corridor in August 2018. The study will examine a range of cost-effective roadway alternatives to address capacity, access, mobility and safety issues between Bunker Lake Blvd. (Anoka County Rd. 116) in Ham Lake and County Rd. 10/Mounds View Blvd. in Spring Lake Park.  For more information, go to:

Highway 47 Improvements - St. Francis
MnDOT, in partnership with Anoka County and the city of St. Francis, is making improvements to Highway 47 in the city of St. Francis. The four-lane divided highway northwest of the Twin Cities metro area has safety concerns, most notably at the intersection of Highway 47 and Pederson Drive N.W.  For more information, go to:

Highway 65 - Ham Lake to East Bethel
Reduced Conflict Intersections and Turn Lane Improvements

Hornsby Street - Eureka Avenue Road Closure
In conjunction with MnDOT’s I-35 Design/Build Project and work on Trunk Highway 97, and the upcoming (2019) Hornsby Street Realignment project, the City of Columbus closed Hornsby Street from TH-97 to the Columbus/Forest Lake city border on May 21, 2018.  The road will remained closed until the completion of the aforementioned projects which are anticipated to be finished by late fall/early winter of 2019.  Access from the north on Eureka Avenue will remain open past the boat landing all the way to the Columbus/Forest Lake city border, where an existing driveway is located should vehicles venture that far and need to make a T turn-around.  Please refer to the attached Hornsby Street Exhibit for the location of the proposed road signage for the closure.

MnDOT Traffic & Road Conditions Information
Use caution and drive safely. If possible, use alternate routes. Remember, as you travel through a work zone reduce your speed, adjust your lane position away from workers, and prepare for the unexpected. Allow extra time for your trip or, 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.
