NEWSBRIEF: Lake Elmo Avenue improvement project

Valley Paving will do the Lake Elmo Avenue improvement project that will resurface and reconstruct the roadway from Interstate 94 to 30th Street, after the Washington County Board of Commissioners approved a $3.82 million contract with the company Dec. 18.

The roadway between the interstate and 20th Street will be resurfaced; the roadway from 20th Street to 30th Street will be reconstructed.

The project was planned for last summer, but the single bid for the project came in 11 percent over the engineerís estimate, and the project was put off until this coming year.

The board also approved construction and maintenance agreements with the City of Lake Elmo regarding the project. The city will pay for 15 percent of the project, while the countyís pavement preservation funds will pay for a quarter of the project, and highway state aid will pay for the remainder.
