Work begins Monday, July 26 on Hwy 169 in Anoka
Additional work begins later this summer on Hwy 47

ROSEVILLE, Minn. – A project to resurface Highway 169 between the north end of the Mississippi River bridge and Clay Street in Anoka begins early Monday morning, July 26. The project also includes new curb and gutter, improved drainage and accessibility improvements to sidewalks, approaches and crossings to meet ADA (Americans with Disabilities) standards along the roadway. The upgrades include Audible Pedestrian Signals (APS) at various pedestrian/bicycle crossings along the highways.

As the project begins, crews will remove old curb and gutter and begin the ADA crossing work .During the work, motorists should watch for single lane traffic in each direction daily between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. along with narrower lanes. Although work will be carried out at various cross streets and driveways along the highway, MnDOT will maintain access to all homes and businesses throughout the project.

Later this summer, crews will resurface Highway 47 between Pleasant Street to just south of Industry Ave./Bunker Lake Boulevard.

Information about upcoming traffic impacts will be shared as details become available.

When completed in late October, 2021, (weather permitting) the project will provide a smoother, longer lasting road surface, improved safety and mobility along the corridor along with safer pedestrian and bicycle accessibility and improved drainage.
