Virtual online open house begins today to highlight proposed future of Highway 65 in Spring Lake Park, Blaine, Ham Lake

ROSEVILLE, Minn. — The public is invited to participate in a virtual online open house from Friday, Aug. 28 through Monday, Sept. 28, 2020 to learn more about proposed designs for the future of Highway 65 in Spring Lake Park, Blaine and Ham Lake.  MnDOT, in partnership with Anoka County and the cities of Blaine, Ham Lake and Spring Lake Park are studying the highway corridor between Anoka County Road 10/Mounds View Blvd. in Spring Lake Park and Bunker Lake Boulevard in Ham Lake. Along with input from the community, three cost-effective solutions were identified to address the transportation needs of all users.

The online virtual open house will present proposed designs to address safety, congestion, access and bicycle/pedestrian needs. Participants will be able to view several layouts, ask questions and give feedback. To learn more and to visit the online open house, please visit the Hwy 65 study meetings page.

The Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) invites and encourages participation by all. We believe everyone should have an equal opportunity to enjoy the programs, services and activities we provide. To request this information in a different format, call 651-366-4718 or email your request to ADArequest.dot@state.mn.us.

Highway 65 is a gateway that connects communities in the Twin Cities Metro area and provides access to greater Minnesota. The section of Highway 65 between Bunker Lake Blvd. in Ham Lake and County Road 10/ Mounds View Blvd. in Spring Lake Park currently has capacity, access, mobility and safety issues. As the area continues to grow, MnDOT along with county and city leaders are working on a vision for the corridor that best addresses these transportation issues.
