Alexandria Street Reconstruction Project

The city of Alexandria and the Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) reconstructed Broadway/Hwy 29 in downtown Alexandria from 3rd Avenue to 8th Avenue in 2014. MnDOT and the city coordinated efforts to ensure the updated road was smoother and safer, and the new sidewalks and curb ramps were more accessible for the disabled. The city wanted a new streetscape and to upgrade underground utilities. MnDOT did a pavement analysis and determined that concrete would be more cost effective than asphalt for this section of Broadway. In the end, 5,186.5 cubic yards of concrete was placed for light poles, the street, sidewalks and curbs.
