2021 Projects

109th Avenue (CSAH 12) Pedestrian Ramp Improvement Project

Seven pedestrian ramp pairs will be reconstructed along 109th Ave NE in partnership with MnDOT.  These projects will increase the walkability of the area and give opportunities to local small businesses for the construction.  Construction is planned to begin in July 2021, with each intersection being redone individually.

Birch Street (CSAH 34) Reconstruction Project - Hokah Drive through West Shadow Lake Drive

Birch Street will be reconstructed to improve mobility and safety between Hokah Drive and West Shadow Lake Drive. Improvements include constructing two new roundabouts and a center median to divide directional traffic.

Bunker Lake Blvd (CSAH 116) - Armstrong Blvd (CSAH 83) to Sunfish Lake Blvd (CSAH 57)

Bunker Lake Boulevard improvements will better serve the community over the next four years by keeping this road safe for area residents, businesses, and commuters. Changes to Bunker Lake Boulevard are in anticipation of a temporary increase in traffic during Highway 10 construction in 2022-2025.

Bunker Lake Blvd (CSAH 116) & Trunk Highway 47 (TH 47) Intersection Improvements

This project will increase intersection capacity by providing additional travel and turn lanes and constructing a multi-use trail along a segment of Bunker Lake Boulevard. It will also widen the Oxbow Bridge on Bunker Lake Boulevard to the east of TH 47, which will accommodate a new turn lane onto northbound TH 47.

Camp 3 Road Temporary Closure between Kettle River Blvd and Lake Dr

The intersection of Kettle River Boulevard and Camp 3 Road has posed safety concerns due to vehicle accidents and near/miss accidents.  Anoka County, in partnership with the City of Columbus, will be temporarily closing the section of Camp 3 Road between Lake Drive (CSAH 23) and Kettle River Boulevard (CSAH 62) for a period of 6 weeks to collect traffic counts, determine driver patterns, and obtain driver feedback to aid in determining safety improvements at the intersection of Kettle River Boulevard and Camp 3 Road.

Foley Boulevard (CSAH 11) - BNSF Railway Grade Separation

Foley Boulevard, from East River Road to Coon Rapids Boulevard, will be reconstructed to a four-lane divided highway over the BNSF railroad tracks.
