County approves road plan
The Stearns County Highway Department received approval from the county board of commissioners to move ahead with its five-year road construction plan. The board of commissioners approved the plan on Tuesday, Nov. 13. |
The plan calls for over $48 million in construction projects over the next five years. The county's share of the costs currently stands at $10 million. State and federal money will pick up the rest.
In 2002, 22 projects are slated to take place around the county, with a total cost of $13 million. Half that ($7 million) will be needed to build the new I-94 interchange on County Road 75 near the New Flyer bus company.
Projects in the Paynesville area in 2002 will include the upgrading of Highway 124, including the reconfiguring of the north intersection with Highway 55. This road will be turned back to Stearns County from the state of Minnesota.
County Road 123 will also be resurfaced and turned back to Paynesville Township in 2002. This $100,000 project was originally scheduled for 2001 but got pushed back a year.
In 2003, County Road 10 from Roscoe to Albany is scheduled to be resurfaced, as well as the county roads within the city of Roscoe. Both County Road 68 and County Road 114, which intersects with Highway 23, will also be resurfaced.
