Park Drive Reconstruction

Owatonna, MN | Transportation

Overview

ISG worked with the City of Owatonna to reconstruct over a mile of Park Drive and helped see the project through by navigating government processes and leading community engagement efforts.


Opportunity

In order to reconstruct a section of roadway and implement new infrastructure, the City of Owatonna needed an experienced design partner with the resources to work with residents, businesses, and a rail company affected by the project.

Solution

ISG worked closely with the City of Owatonna to complete the reconstruction of just over 1 mile of Park Drive. This project followed state aid standards as it is a Municipal State Aid Street and also used the MN 429 Assessment process. This project included full reconstruction of Park Drive as a doweled concrete roadway with bituminous shoulders in an industrial park. ISG provided staking and design for the project including feasibility reports and review and modeling of all stormwater, including existing ditches, storm sewer, and tile conveyances through the project area. The project included design for a new 16-inch watermain along the roadway and realignment of a portion of the road. ISG also coordinated with the Canadian Pacific Railroad for all required permitting for utility crossings as well as all businesses along the project area, both during planning and construction.
