CSAH 45 Reconstruction

Faribault, MN | Transportation

Overview

ISG has led the design of a number of reconstruction projects for CSAH 45 in Faribault, Minnesota. These projects have provided better access to a new church, implemented new infrastructure, added sidewalks and trails, and made the highway safer and more convenient for drivers.


Opportunity

For a new church on the edge of the City, CSAH 45 in Rice County needed a series of reconstruction services, including a utility extension, lane additions, and other infrastructure needs.

Solution

Construction commenced in 2008 for Phase One of the Divine Mercy Catholic Church development, relocating the church into a new facility along CSAH 45 in Rice County, Minnesota. In conjunction with Phase One, a utility extension was also planned to serve the new site and future phases of residential development planned collectively with the project. The extension included 4,500 feet of CSAH 45 (Willow Street) right-of-way beginning at the intersection of the River Bend Trail and CSAH 45 and running south of the proposed Church Site.

As part of a subsequent phase for Rice County in 2010, ISG provided design work for the addition of a turn lane off of CSAH 45 at the Divine Mercy site. This project included dedicated right and left turn lanes into the Divine Mercy site meeting all applicable State and County requirements. In 2011, Rice County solicited ISG to work on another adjacent roadway improvement on CSAH 45, adjacent to the turn lane improvements constructed in 2012 and extending south for approximately 2.5 miles. ISG provided all reconstruction design for CSAH 45 from CSAH 39 to CSAH 15 with intersection improvements and turn lanes at both intersections.

ISG also provided design work for the City of Faribault for the full reconstruction of the City’s portion of CSAH 45 from CR 47 (17th Street) to CSAH 39. This included full street reconstruction from a rural section to an urban section as well as storm sewer addition, watermain connections, sanitary sewer adjustment, sidewalk and trails. The project also included turn lane improvements as well as sidewalk and trail construction. In order to receive both state and federal funding, the project had to meet all applicable requirements. For all four projects listed above, ISG provided a range of services including civil engineering design, surveying, construction staking, easement preparation, bidding and contract and construction administration and observation. On all of these projects ISG also provided coordination with Rice County, the City of Faribault, MnDOT and Divine Mercy Catholic Church.

In 2008, ISG provided Phase One services for the Divine Mercy Catholic Church’s development relocating the church into a new facility along CSAH 45 in Rice County, Minnesota. In conjunction, a utility extension was also planned to serve the new site. The extension included 4,500 feet of CSAH 45 (Willow Street) ROW. As part of a subsequent phase for the Rice County in 2010, ISG provided design work for the addition of a turn lane off of CSAH 45 at the Divine Mercy site, successfully meeting all applicable state and county requirements. In 2011, Rice County solicited ISG to work on another adjacent roadway improvement on CSAH 45, adjacent to the turn lane improvements constructed after 2011 and extending south for approximately 2.5 miles. ISG provided all reconstruction design for CSAH 45 from CSAH 39 to CSAH 15, with intersection improvements and turn lanes at both intersections. ISG also provided design work the full reconstruction of the City of Faribault’s portion of CSAH 45 from CR 47 (17th Street) to CSAH 39.
