Highway 9, from Barnesville to Interstate 94, is expected to be in poor condition by 2022, increasing the resource needs from maintenance. The majority of sidewalk and pedestrian ramps in Barnesville are currently noncompliant and will be repaired or replaced as part of this project.
The project will include resurfacing and accessibility improvements to sidewalks and ramps, which will result in a more narrow roadway upon completion in order to meet roadway standards and pedestrian accessibility compliance.
Key project elements
- Reconstruction of Highway 9 from railroad crossing to Highway 34
- Eliminating two of the three railroad tracks crossing Highway 34 and relocating signals
- City utility replacement between Main Avenue and Highway 34
- Construct trail on east side of Highway 9, from Main Avenue to Highway 34 (Funded via TAP)
- Resurfacing of Highway 9 between Highway 34 and I-94
- Turn lanes at CR 55, on west of side Highway 9
- A detour is expected for a portion of the project while city utilities are being replaced. Lane closures are another potential traffic impact.
