Freeborn County CSAH 22 Bridge Avenue

The City of Albert Lea and Freeborn County Public Works successfully obtained federal funds for the reconstruction of  CSAH 22 (Bridge Avenue). This 1.3-mile segment from Marshall Street to Hammer Road in Albert Lea is an important north-south corridor providing access to residential neighborhoods, schools, and the Freeborn County fairgrounds. The existing concrete pavement along the northerly segment between the Freeborn County fairgrounds and Hammer Road was experiencing cracking, spalling and joint deterioration. The bituminous roadway portion along the southerly segment from Marshall Street to the fairgrounds was constructed in the 1960s and was in very poor condition. The project included complete roadway reconstruction, replacement of the City’s aging sanitary sewer, stormsewer and water main along with individual service line replacement; a new multipurpose trail was constructed to better serve two area schools and the surrounding residential area; and replacement of twin 56-inch culverts at the Goose Creek crossing.

In addition to preliminary and final design, SRF provided the City and County with traffic analysis, streetscape design with ADA compliant pedestrian improvements, traffic signal design, stormwater design, permitting, right of way acquisition, and public engagement/public outreach. SRF also provided construction administration, observation, staking, and record drawings for this $12M project.
