About this project

MnDOT and St. Louis Counties Highway Safety Plans and other research have identified the Hwy 53 intersections at Miller Trunk Road and at Bodas Road/East Long Lake Road as "high priority" locations for safety improvements based on crash history and crash severity. The two intersections are being revised to reduce crashes by minimizing turning conflicts.
