Heart of the City Arterial Roadway Improvements
City of Burnsville, Minnesota
Nicollet Avenue, Burnsville Parkway, and Aldrich Avenue carry high traffic volumes and run through Burnsville's Heart of the City - a pedestrian-friendly downtown area with retail shops, businesses, a community park, big-box retail area, and residential routes. The city desired comprehensive improvements along four miles of these arterial roads. Bolton & Menk provided design and construction services for the $5 million state aid project.
We provided pavement rehabilitation, improvements to pedestrian facilities to meet current ADA standards, a new traffic signal system, watermain interconnections, decommissioned a segment of 36-inch trunk watermain, trenchless forcemain rehabilitation, and revitalized median landscaping. Two-way traffic was maintained throughout construction to minimize impacts to area businesses and property owners. Overnight and weekend construction minimized impacts of water shutdowns to area businesses and property owners. We also used overnight paving operations to minimize impacts in a heavy commercial area. Our communication and coordination with businesses and property owners throughout construction was critical to the success of the project.
