Project Overview

MnDOT Metro selected us to prepare final plans, special provisions, and associated tasks for a pavement maintenance project on TH 77 (Cedar Ave). This project includes concrete pavement rehabilitation, bituminous mill and overlay, drainage structure repair, guardrail replacement, striping, and other enhancements.

Two types of pavement repairs were defined: Minor and Medium Concrete Pavement Repair (Minor CPR and Medium CPR) from approximately 250 feet north of 138th Street in Apple Valley to approximately 0.4 miles south of TH 13, and 3.5 inches and mill and overlay from 0.4 miles south of TH 13 to the south end of the Minnesota River Bridge in Eagan.

Beyond Design

This was a fast track project, and we completed the design work in 71 days. This project was awarded to our team in January 2012 and was successfully completed on time and approved for the planned letting date of 5/18/2012.

Community Responsibility

A big project shouldn’t mean a big disruption. Our traffic control plans allowed this high volume roadway (Average Daily Traffic of 69,000) to be constructed under traffic while minimizing disruption to traffic flow. We accomplished this with temporary widening along with lane shifts and lane closures.
