Public invited to learn about Highway 107/65 “continuous-green T intersection” at construction open house in Braham April 25

Construction begins April 29

ST. CLOUD, Minn. — All who travel Hwy 65 and Hwy 107 near Braham are invited to attend an open house about an important road project that will construct a new “continuous green T intersection” at the Hwy 107/Hwy 65 intersection. Construction is scheduled to begin April 29.

The open house will be held Thursday, April 25, from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m., at Braham City Hall, 201 Broadway Ave. S.

Open house attendees will be able to learn about the project’s schedule, work to be performed, new intersection design, traffic plans and take home project information. A project layout will be on display, along with a video of a similar intersection recently constructed in Duluth, and MnDOT staff will be available to answer any questions. No presentation is planned, guests are invited to arrive any time.

The project will begin late-April, and be complete in July, 2019. The schedule is weather dependent.

The project will construct a new “continuous green T intersection” at Hwy 65/107. The new design will improve traffic flow and safety at the intersection with the combination of a signal system, raised concrete medians and turn lanes that will maintain continuous flow-through traffic on southbound Highway 65, while also improving safety for motorists who make left-hand turns at the intersection.

Continuous green T intersections have been successfully installed at Hwy 12/25 near Montrose, and St. Louis County Road 4/Rice Lake Road and Airport Road in Duluth.

To get information on the project, view the new intersection design and watch a video of a Continuous Green T intersection in action, visit mndot.gov/d3/projects/braham/.
