The city is once again trying to persuade the state to construct a full interchange at Highway 610 and Coon Rapids Boulevard.The City Council met in a work session this week to get an update from staff on recent talks with MnDOT. Currently, eastbound 610 traffic can exit on Coon Rapids Boulevard and motorists can get onto Highway 610 and head westbound. But motorists on Coon Rapids Boulevard can't get on and head east towards Blaine, and vehicles getting onto 610 from Highway 10 have no options to exit the highway until they get into Brooklyn Park. Another traffic study will be done and the city is looking at purchasing some land near 610 in hopes of securing funding for the project.Without funding, there's no timeline on exactly when the full interchange could be constructed. But Mayor Jerry Koch says the project has support from local legislators.
