About Lexington:

Transportation

Transit Services

Two public transit operators serve the City of Lexington connecting riders in the area with work, social activities and services.  Metro Transit, the largest provider of regional transit services, travels along Lexington Avenue, Lovell Road and Naples Street. Patrons can utilize a park-n-ride facility at the southwest corner of 95th Avenue and 35W. This route travels along Interstate 35W to downtown Minneapolis. Some of these buses stop at employment centers in Mounds View and New Brighton. Travel time from Lexington to downtown Minneapolis is approximately 35 minutes. North Suburban Lines currently operates Route #262, which travels along Lexington, Lake Drive and Flowerfield. This route provides local service in the cities of Blaine, Circle Pines, Arden Hills, and Shoreview. It has limited stops through Roseville and St. Paul on its way to downtown St. Paul. Travel time from Lexington to downtown St. Paul is approximately 45 minutes.

Transit services within Anoka County give residents a variety of transportation options: Traveler Fixed Routes and Dial-a-Ride, Northstar Commuter Rail, Ramsey Star Express, Metro Transit and the Anoka County Volunteer Transportation Program.


Airlines

 

The Anoka County-Blaine Airport, or Janes Field, is located just to the west of the City. It is an important part of the regional aviation system. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) currently designates seven airports in the metropolitan area as "reliever airports” for the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport (MSP). The role of reliever airports is to provide attractive alternatives to the facilities at MSP, thereby alleviating congestion at the principal airport. These airports are distributed throughout the metropolitan area and serve both local aircraft as well as aircraft traveling from non-local destinations. The Anoka County-Blaine airport is served by a new air traffic control tower, which provides traffic services to the most diverse aircraft mix in the airport system. Corporate jet aircraft operators, recreational pilots, and many antique aircraft owners call the airport home.


Interstate 35-W

 

Interstate 35W, a six-lane limited access roadway, arcs around the City just beyond its western border. This roadway provides direct access to downtown Minneapolis as well as to other metropolitan destinations. Lexington Avenue, or County Road 17, forms the eastern border of the City with Circle Pines and Blaine. This road is an important north/south route through communities in Anoka and Ramsey Counties. This road also connects with Interstate 35W. Lake Drive, or County Road 23, bisects the community from the northeast to the southwest, intersecting with both Interstate 35W and Lexington Avenue.
