Connections to Rice Creek Commons

Rice Creek Commons will be connected to the external road network in three locations: County Road I, County Road H, and Highway 96. Primary access to the site will be from Highway 96 east of Highway 10 and County Road H near I-35W.  A secondary access point to the north will be provided at County Road I and Rice Creek Parkway. A new boulevard will serve as the main artery through the site. A roundabout at County Road H will organize the on- and off-ramps, the spine road, and access road to the Thumb.

Over the last several years, Ramsey County has improved these roads with an investment of $34 million. Additionally, since 2013 nearly $200 million has been invested or is planned to be invested in infrastructure improvements near Rice Creek Commons.

Streets within TCAAP will be a combination of local city roads and private roads built by the developer. Ramsey County and Arden Hills will work with developers to ensure streets are pedestrian- and bicycle-friendly.
