ST. CLOUD, Minn.— The Minnesota Department of Transportation invites the public to a meeting on Tuesday, Feb. 1, regarding 2012 construction of an interchange at Highway 15 and Stearns County Road 120 in St. Cloud/Sartell. The public meeting is scheduled from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at MnDOT’s District 3 Office, 3725 12th Street N., St. Cloud, Minn.

 

Highway 15 St. Cloud/Sartell
Location: Intersection of Hwy 15 and Stearns County Hwy 120 in Sartell/St. Cloud
Description: Construct a diverging diamond interchange
Construct: 2012 - 2013
Communities: Sartell, St. Cloud, Stearns County
Cost: $17.5 million

The meeting is an opportunity for the public to learn about the interchange project. MnDOT representatives will be on hand to answer questions.

 

A diverging diamond interchange, one of the first of its kind in Minnesota, will replace the existing signal system. Design layouts and a video demonstration will be featured during the meeting to educate motorists about this new interchange configuration concept.

 

The project will be funded with $10 million Greater Minnesota Interchange funding, $4.5 million Destination Innovation Program funding and $3 million local funding. It will improve safety, decrease congestion and manage future capacity and community growth.

 

If you have questions about the project, please contact Claudia Dumont, MnDOT project manager, at 320-223-6530 or claudia.dumont@state.mn.us.

Traffic will crisscross at either end of the bridge, so instead of making hard left turns, drivers will veer to the left for access. The orange color is sidewalk. Pedestrians will actually cross to the middle of the bridge and walk in the middle between the eastbound and westbound lanes with protective barriers on either side. Detailed sketch, Sketch above
