Thank you from the project team!
Construction activities complete for the year
On behalf of the project team, thank you for your patience while we completed this year's construction activities at the Lake Street (County Road 25) and Excelsior Boulevard (County Road 3) intersection.
- Realigning eastbound Lake Street
- Constructing the new concrete pedestrian island, medians, ramps, and curbs and gutters
- Relocating pedestrian crossings
- Installing underground lines for new traffic and pedestrian signals
- Paving the intersection
A new pedestrian island with sidewalk path provides a safer connection for people walking, biking and rolling through the intersection.
Improved pedestrian crossings at the intersection include a protected refuge area and accessible curb ramps.
What to expect in 2020
Because crews were able to complete a significant amount of work at the intersection this year, we anticipate next year's work will be less disruptive and will require fewer lane shifts and closures.
Crews will be back in early spring to complete remaining intersection improvements, including:
- Placing permanent striping
- Installing new traffic signals
Winter travel through the area
With this year's construction activities complete, crews will make sure the road is ready for winter travel, as well as for snow and ice removal by county crews.
