Public Engagement

The project includes a public involvement process whereby the area residents and property and business owners will have an opportunity to share your thoughts and opinions. The project partners hope to engage with the public regarding the corridor analysis outcomes, input into the environmental documentation process, and input on the design elements.

Notice of availability and comment period for the 610 Extension Project and Section 4(f) de minimis preliminary determination

This is your opportunity to comment on the 610 Extension Project Section 4(f) de minimis preliminary determination as part of the project’s environmental review process. Comments must be submitted on or before Thursday, January 6, 2022.

In accordance with Section 6009 of the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA-LU) Public Law 109-59, enacted August 10, 2005, the City of Maple Grove is soliciting comments on the effects the 610 Extension Project would have on Rush Creek Linear Park and trails along CSAH 30. The project will impact approximately 0.043 acres of Rush Creek Linear Park on the north side CSAH 30. The project also will temporarily impact approximately 0.3 miles of trail along CSAH 30. A short-term detour will be provided during construction, and the trail will be reconstructed as part of the proposed project.

The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) has made a preliminary determination that the proposed action affecting Rush Creek Linear Park and the CSAH 30 trail is a Section 4(f) de minimis action in accordance with Section 6009(a) of SAFETEA-LU, conditioned on public review and comment. A de minimis finding may be made when uses of Section 4(f) land will have no adverse effect on the protected resources.

Information on this impact and avoidance, minimization, mitigation, or enhancement measures is described in the following document:
Section 4(f) de minimis report
