The project is being done in cooperation with the Crow Wing County and the City of Baxter. The project involves College Drive from CSAH 48 to the intersection of S 5th & Quince. The project involves upgrading the College Drive corridor from a three lane road to a four lane divided roadway. A combination of traffic signals and roundabouts will be used for traffic control at intersections. A trail and sidewalk will be installed to provide safer pedestrian movement through the corridor. Work involved includes grading, curb and gutter, paving, storm sewer, sidewalk construction, trail construction, signal upgrades, roundabout construction, retaining walls and landscaping.
