CSAH 9 (Summit Avenue) Reconstruction

Chisago County, Minnesota

The Chisago County Public Works Department retained SRF to produce preliminary/final design plans and assist with construction administration for CSAH 9 (Summit Avenue) between US Highway 8 and CSAH 82 in the heart of historic and scenic Center City, Minnesota. SRF assisted County staff with an interactive stakeholder involvement process to gain local support and project acceptance. The result was a highly successful project that includes an upgraded roadway facility with safer driving conditions, complemented by a contiguous concrete sidewalk with lighting for pedestrians. By properly collecting and treating storm-water runoff, water quality is expected to improve in North Center Lake as a result of this project. Through the integration of several large-block retaining walls, slope stability has been preserved along the corridor, while providing an attractive amenity that complements the historical character of the neighborhood.
