Time: 4:00 PM -


A public hearing will be held on the DRAFT 2040 Transportation Policy Plan Amendment #2 Monday, Oct. 9, 2023.


The following projects must be identified as funded in the region’s 2040 Transportation Policy Plan to be added to the region’s Transportation Improvement Program and then to begin construction:

  • The US 10 Highway Congestion Mitigation Project expands US Highway 10 (US 10) in Anoka County from two to three mainline travel lanes in Coon Rapids between County State Aid Highway (CSAH) 78 (Hanson Boulevard) and CSAH 9 (Round Lake Boulevard).
  • The US 169/CSAH 59 Interchange Project converts an at-grade intersection on US Highway 169 in Scott County to a grade-separated interchange with CSAH 59 (Delaware Avenue), roughly 2.5 miles southwest of the City of Jordan.
  • The I-94 Albertville to Monticello Lane Expansion Project in Wright County expands approximately 8 miles of I-94 from two to three travel lanes in each direction between the cities of Albertville and Monticello.
  • The MN Highway 65 Access Improvement Project converts an intersection on Highway 65 in the City of Blaine to a grade-separated interchange. The project is at 117th Avenue and will be combined with a larger project that is already in the Current Revenue Scenario.
  • The MN Highway 13 Grade Separations in Dakota and Scott counties will convert at-grade intersections to grade separations between Quentin Avenue in Savage and Nicollet Avenue in Burnsville. The project at eastern project termini, MN 13 and Nicollet, is already in the Current Revenue Scenario as it was funded with the Regional Solicitation.

All projects are fully funded through a variety of funding programs and sources, including Corridors of Commerce, direct appropriations from the last state legislative session, and through county transportation sales tax.
