CSAH 8 has experienced 16 roadway crashes over a three-year period. The existing four-lane roadway, which carries between 9,000 and 12,000 vehicles per day, is a concern for pedestrians and bicyclists attempting to cross the road. The corridor includes churches, an elementary school, a hospital, multiple businesses, and homes. Users need to cross CSAH 8 and should be able to do so safely.

Bolton & Menk worked with Anoka County, the City of Fridley, and the City of Spring Lake Park to eliminate unnecessary traffic lanes and repurpose the space for better use. By reducing the roadway to one lane of traffic in each direction, the amount of vehicle conflict points and the risk for crashes decreases. Expanding the shoulder and boulevard space increases the distance between the pedestrians on the trail and sidewalk from vehicle traffic. The left turn lane will further increase roadway safety by removing the turning traffic from through traffic.

By considering access and accommodations for all travel modes – including transit, pedestrians, and bicyclists – we can create a more enjoyable walking and/or biking experience for users.
