Minnewashta Parkway Update
Poles were installed at Highway 5 this week, in preparation for the installation of the temporary signal system, for use during the 2021 construction season. The temporary all-way stop control at the Kings Road intersection will be removed until construction resumes in 2021. There has been a significant delay at the manufacturing facility of the speed display signs due to COVID-19. When the signs are ultimately delivered, the plan is to install the sign in the Phase 1 area. The sign will be located approximately 400 feet south of Red Cedar Point Road.
The contractor is currently working on the stormwater pond clean-out, and will continue to temporarily stabilize the disturbed areas in preparation for winter. Final restoration will take place in the spring. The contractor is planning to be completed with their major operations in 2020, by Thanksgiving. They will fully sweep the entire construction area before they demobilize for the winter.
