Redesign and reconstruct three miles of Highway 169 to a new freeway system through Elk River from Hwy 101/Hwy 10 to 197th Ave, Sherburne County. Construction is scheduled to begin in 2023. Sign-up for project email updates.
August 2019 - MnDOT is getting closer to a preliminary layout for the future freeway project in Elk River, hopefully late-September. A construction management contractor and final design team will be hired in January 2020 to work together to determine the best, most cost-effective plans for the construction project.
In fall 2019, MnDOT along with Sherburne County and the city of Elk River, will schedule a public informational open house. Stay tuned. More information to come.
Watch for work crews along Hwy 169
MnDOT is gathering data along Hwy 169 for the future 2023-2024 construction project. Crews will survey locations, gather traffic and pedestrian counts, monitor noise levels, obtain soil and water samples, inspect below ground infrastructure and more. The work may require temporary lane or shoulder closures. Watch for road signs, workers and equipment in the area. This work will continue through August.
