Prior Lake - 2015 Street Reconstruction

Prior lake logo

Project Overview

The City has a Capital Improvement Program which prioritizes the infrastructure improvement needs within the City. This program has identified the Highland, Marsh, Skyline, Grainwood, and Eau Claire neighborhood areas as planned for reconstruction in 2015. The City is planning to reconstruct the deteriorated bituminous surfaces to meet current City standards which will include new concrete curb and gutter. Along with the reconstruction of the street surface, the City reviews all underground infrastructure needs and makes improvements accordingly. For this project, stormwater management improvements, replacement of sanitary sewer, and replacement of watermain will take place.

The City has contracted with Bolton & Menk, Inc. to assist in the design of the project to be completed this fall with bidding in the early spring. Construction is anticipated to begin in May 2015 and continue into November with multiple phases along the way. Construction begins with the deep utility work and progresses to street reconstruction and finally restoration.
