Agency coordination and project scheduling allowed the city to leverage county funding to replace an aged and deteriorated public infrastructure.
CSAH 62 Street and Utility Improvements
City of Wells, Minnesota
CSAH 62, also known as 2nd Street NW, was last reconstructed in the early 1970s and began to show signs of distress. During the last reconstruction, trunk storm sewer was installed to solve drainage problems in the northwest part of the city; however, the sanitary sewer and water distribution piping was not upgraded at that time. The concrete street surface had a number of cracks and settlements and needed extensive repairs.
Bolton & Menk scheduled the reconstruction project in coordination with the city and county to leverage county state aid funding to pay for street and storm sewer repairs. This funding allowed the city the opportunity to replace the aged and deteriorated public infrastructure.
Residents of Wells and Faribault County now have an updated underground infrastructure that will last for 50 or more years, and a road surface that will carry traffic for another 30 years.
