River Bluff Shopping Center being redeveloped?

Apparently, the River Bluff Shopping Center (across from us on Sibley Memorial Highway) was sold and the developer plans to put 5-story housing along the river bluffs. I’m trying to confirm the sale and plans for the development of the properties. Click on the link below to see the video the property listing company made of the area surrounding the area and the property listing. A Pioneer Press reporter who specializes in the Dakota Country area is researching the topic and will update me.

 

 

Renaming Highway 55 & 110 to Highway 62-Mendota Heights, Sunfish Lake, West St. Paul, Inver Grove Heights

 

 

One route. One name.

About the Hwy 62 renaming project

 

Currently, motorists traveling east or west on the highway between I-35W and I-494 will encounter three separate roadway names despite never leaving their travel lanes. The highway is signed as Highway 62 west of Fort Snelling, Highway 55 over the river and then Highway 110 beginning at Highway 13.

MnDOT wants to lessen the confusion for people traveling through the area by renaming this stretch of highway to Highway 62, therefore making it one number for the entire route.

Summary of work

  • Resign Hwy 55 to include Hwy 62 between Hiawatha Ave. and Hwy 13, near MSP airport
  • Resign/rename Hwy 110 to Hwy 62 between Hwy 13 and I-494
  • Change of address for residents and businesses with Hwy 110 addresses (city will lead)

Route travelers

When will the new signing be in place?

  • The new signing for Hwy 55 and Hwy 110 will be in place beginning July 2018. Hwy 55 will be dual signed as both Hwy 55 and Hwy 62. Hwy 110 will only be signed Hwy 62. However, there will be an ‘Old 110’ plaque in place on Hwy 62 for a minimum of one year after the name change indicating it used to be Hwy 110.

How will I know I am on the correct highway?

  • Hwy 55 will be dual signed with both Hwy 55 and Hwy 62 after the name change. Hwy 110 will only be signed Hwy 62. However, there will be an ‘Old 110’ plaque in place on Hwy 62 for a minimum of one year after the name change indicating it used to be Hwy 110.

Will the name change affect the road or impact traffic?

  • The name change will not affect or change the character of the existing highway. And there isn’t any additional traffic foreseen due to the name change, as current direction providing sites (google, bing, etc.) already provide the most direct routes.

 Current residents and businesses

When will the new naming be in place?

  • Beginning July 2018, the highways will have the new signing for Hwy 62.

How do I prepare?

  • The city you reside in will provide you with a proposal for your new address in 2017. Then the city you reside in will notify you when to begin using your new address and it is recommended that you wait until that time before you change anything.
  • You will then want to notify your power company and utility providers, insurance company, Driver and Vehicle Services, your cell phone carrier, your cable carrier, your bank(s), voter registration, schools attended by anyone in your household, newspapers and/or magazines and other subscriber services. Businesses, you may have additional contacts and/or materials you use that you will want to update to the new address.
    • Note: This list is not exhaustive, it is a reference to get you started.

Will I have to change my address?

  • If your home or business is currently addressed Hwy 110 (i.e. 123 Hwy 110), yes you will have to change your address. Your city will be the lead on your new address.

Who do I need to notify of my address change?

  • The city you reside in will notify you when to begin using your new address and it is recommended that you wait until that time before you change anything. You will want to notify your power company and utility providers, insurance company, Driver and Vehicle Services, your cell phone carrier, your cable carrier, your bank(s), voter registration, schools attended by anyone in your household, newspapers and/or magazines and other subscriber services.
    • Note: This list is not exhaustive, it is a reference to get you started.

How do I handle my P.O. Box?

  • If you currently receive your mail from a P.O. Box, you will be able to continue to do so with no change, even after the renaming of the highway is in effect.

Is MnDOT going to pay for everything related to changing my address?

  • Unfortunately, MnDOT cannot pay for this.
