For many years, the City of Coon Rapids has sought to provide additional access to Trunk Highway (TH) 610 near Coon Rapids Boulevard. Currently, only westbound on-ramps and eastbound off-ramps to and from TH 610 exist at both East River Road and Coon Rapids Boulevard. Research has been underway for several years and preliminary plans are being considered. No formal plans have been approved.
