About this project
Hwy 61/Forest Lake Blvd N. between 210th St. and just north of Scandia Trail N. is a heavily traveled road in Forest Lake. This mile-long section of road runs directly in front of Forest Lake High School. MnDOT will be reconstructing the north and south intersections of this segment of highway to enhance traffic flow in the area.
