Background

Location mapThe current highway was constructed in 1957. The existing pavement is nearing the end of its life with a ride quality index (RQI) of 2.8; projects are programmed when the RQI drops below 3.0. Existing sidewalks do not meet accessibility standards. The city of Brainerd’s aging underground sewer and water utilities, (pipes dating back to 1908) are deteriorated, with several breaks in recent years. Reconstruction begins spring 2018.
