City staff, MnDOT show illustrative WSB video that shows a completed project

The Elk River City Council got a good look at what the future of Highway 169 holds courtesy of a illustrative computer-generated video that showed nearly the entire line.

The public learned more about the project on Monday, Oct. 11, at the Highway 169 Redefine open house.

The event focused on local impacts for the 2022 construction season, the first of a three-year project.

To streamline inquiries, business owners were invited to come from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 11, to Elk River City Hall, 13065 Orono Parkway. Residents were asked to come from 4:30-6:30 p.m.

The project team planned to have the final design and visualizations available for viewing for the 169 Redefine project, and to focus on answering questions about the local traffic impacts expected to come with the 2022 phase of this multi-year project.

The 2022 construction will include:

• Closure of the existing 197th Avenue access across Highway 169 and construction of a new partial-access interchange in its place.

• Construction of 10/169/101 interchange reconfigurations and bridge replacement.
