The Minnesota Department of Transportation and Anoka County are exploring lower-cost alternatives to a full freeway conversion of Hwy. 10 through the cities of Ramsey and Anoka. Changes are needed to address safety and traffic issues,

The public can learn about some of the options and how they might affect private property at an open house from 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday at Greenhaven Golf Course, 2800 Greenhaven Road, Anoka.

Some of the possible alternatives include frontage road connections, intersection modifications, overpasses and pedestrian accommodation.

A brief presentation will begin at 6:30 p.m., with small-group discussions and opportunity to comment at 7 p.m.
