Road and drainage improvements project complete

County Road 92 now open to traffic 

In September, crews reopened County Road 92 between Hillview Drive and Watertown Road (County Road 6) in St. Bonifacius, Minnetrista and Independence. The road and drainage improvements project is now complete. 

Crews worked steadily on the project during the past two months to replace 13 aging culverts, rebuild the roadway foundation and make access and safety improvements. They finished the project by repaving the roadway with a cost-effective method that reused material and should require less maintenance in the years ahead.  

Area improvements 

For those who live and travel in this area, the results of our work should mean a better experience all around including: 

  • New stronger road foundation 
  • New pavement providing a smoother ride 
  • New shoulders and culverts reducing drainage issues 
  • New reflective roadway striping between County Road 15 and Watertown Road (County Road 6) to improve road marking visibility for people driving in dark and wet conditions 
  • New pedestrian curb ramps at Wildwood Avenue and Kennedy Memorial Drive to improve crossings for all 
  • New curb extensions, or "bump outs," at Kennedy Memorial Drive to provide shorter crosswalk distances  
  • Concrete medians at the Trista Lane intersection and the Highway 7 intersection to improve visibility and safety for people driving
