Did you miss the Open House on November 14th?
The second Study Open House reviewed existing and forecasted conditions, provided opportunity to weigh in on the corridor vision and goals, and presented potential corridor and intersection improvements.
Twin Lakes Road (CSAH 13) serves as a vital transportation link supporting economic and social well-being locally, in Elk River, and in the region. Regional traffic growth, improvements on Highways 10 & 169 in Anoka and Ramsey, residential growth, and continued commercial and industrial development will all put traffic pressure on this corridor.
The Twin Lakes Road (CSAH 13) Corridor Study will be used as the framework for guiding Sherburne County and the City of Elk River as they address issues and make improvements along the corridor. This study will identify current and future conditions, develop technically sound solutions to proactively address issues, and recommend projects to implement solutions in a fiscally responsible manner.
Developing goals for the Corridor Study is an important step in the planning process. Goals will help to shape the process and development of the final study document. The City and County have developed the following goals for this Corridor Study:
- Examine the impacts and develop an understanding of how local and regional growth and area land use will affect the corridor
- Analyze crash data and develop appropriate improvement recommendations
- Provide recommendations for pedestrian/bicycle facility improvements
- Collaborate plan and recommendation development between Sherburne County, the City of Elk River, and the local community
- Provide an engaging and transparent process which seeks out and incorporates input and feedback from the community
- Identify funding opportunities that align with corridor goals to develop projects that will best leverage county and city resources
