Port Riverwalk Open House

Wednesday, October 24
5-7 p.m.
Coon Rapids City Center, Civic Room A
11155 Robinson Drive

A public open house is planned to discuss the new Port Riverwalk housing development and street improvement plan.

Centra Homes plans to construct 145 one-level and two-level detached townhomes on the south side of Coon Rapids Boulevard in the area between Egret Boulevard and Avocet Street. City Staff and representatives from Centra Homes will be available at the open house to answer questions and consider input from the public. This project will involve removal of the frontage road on the south side of Coon Rapids Boulevard and realignment of several local streets in the area. Site plans are expected to go to the planning commission later this fall and construction is expected to begin in the spring of 2019. It is expected to take about three years to complete the entire development.

Several infrastructure improvements in the area are also part of this project. The City is working with Anoka County to add new lighting and landscaping in the area, along with a sidewalk on the north side of Coon Rapids Boulevard and a trail on the south side of the boulevard. Work planned for 2019 will also include resurfacing Coon Rapids Boulevard and replacing the traffic signal at Avocet Street. Planning has also begun for a pedestrian bridge across Coon Rapids Boulevard, to help connect the north and south sides of the roadway for pedestrians. The City has applied for federal funding to help cover the cost of the pedestrian bridge, but an award has not yet been made.
