East Point Douglas Road/CSAH 19
City of Cottage Grove, Minnesota
Proposed commercial development within the Cottage View district spurred the need for utility and roadway improvements along East Point Douglas Road adjacent to CSAH 19. Bolton & Menk reviewed the developer's traffic study and provided additional analysis to address county and MnDOT concerns. The study evaluated traffic impacts to the proposed public roadways due to development within the Cottage View site. In addition, sanitary sewer was analyzed to serve approximately 2,800 acres of future service area in accordance with the city's sewer plan. Trunk watermain was modeled to provide adequate fire protection and circulation for improved water quality. Regional stormwater improvements were made in conjunction with the on-site improvements proposed by the commercial development. A phasing plan was developed to allow the city to implement the suggested improvements as development occurred.
