ROSEVILLE, Minn. — The Minnesota Department of Transportation invites the public to attend an open house and public hearing regarding proposed improvements to the intersection of Highway 10 and Armstrong Boulevard in the city of Ramsey. The proposed project would build a new grade separated interchange along with a grade separation at the BNSF Railway Crossing along with widening Armstrong Boulevard from two lanes to four lanes from Riverdale Drive north to Bunker Lake Boulevard (County Road 116).
