White Bear Lake: Hiway 61 Reconstruction

Update 2013.10.23 – White Bear Press and Vadnais Heights Press have a good article in this weeks paper about this project. Construction will be done in 2014. While there are plans for a MUP between Lake Ave and Lake Ave S (very welcome), the plans include no other bicycle facilities. There are questions about Pedestrian facilities. Click above for more.

MNDOT has apparently agreed to narrow the lanes from 12′ to 11′ (very welcome) but at this point will not be lowering the speed limit.

Presentation on this project is here.

Comment Card to provide feedback is here.


2013.04.21 – Plans are being drawn up and evaluated for reconstruction of Hiway 61 in White Bear Lake. Best guess is construction in 2015.

More updates as they become available.
