Broadway Avenue Mega Project

Forest Lake, Minnesota

Washington County retained SRF to complete the design and environmental documentation for the $40M Broadway Avenue Mega Project in Forest Lake. Following each design phase, SRF assisted County staff with construction oversight and administration. Maintaining strong community relations was a primary goal of this project to ensure local acceptance and overall success. SRF worked closely with County staff on developing a thorough public outreach campaign that included frequent and consistent dissemination of project information through multiple meetings and mediums. Deemed a local success, this award-winning project boasts improvements to roadway, bridge, pedestrian and bicycle facilities, and a new overpass at County Road 83/I-35. In addition, a new backage road north of Broadway Avenue provides alternative access to local businesses.
