Highway 60 Bypass

Faribault, MN | Transportation

Overview

ISG worked with the City of Faribault and the Chamber of Commerce to improve accessibility to local businesses from TH 60.


Opportunity

The TH 60/I-35 interchange in Faribault didn’t provide a convenient way for motorists to visit nearby businesses in a promising commercial development.

Solution

The City of Faribault and the Faribault Area Chamber of Commerce invested in a Commercial Market Potential Study which gave several recommendations for various areas of the City. The study recommended improvements to the TH 60/I-35 Interchange configuration that didn't provide easy accessibility to the area. It was noted that commercial developers required a proficient transportation system in order to assure traffic to their district. Based on these recommendations, the City of Faribault initiated the $2.5 million project to improve the transportation in the area in hopes of facilitating development of the district.

This project converted 1,800 feet of two-lane highway into four-lanes, including turn lanes. This extension also included the realignment and improvement of the 206th Street intersection, including added traffic signals. A westbound left turn lane was added to the I-35 exit ramp onto TH 60. The City utilized a combination of state and federal funding sources to finance the project. In addition to full engineering design, topographic survey and right-of-way platting services were provided.
