Concrete streets at grain elevator handles heavy truck traffic

First Avenue (CSAH 106) and Ilex Street (CSAH 6) in Lamberton, Minn. run in front of and beside the Meadowland Grain Elevator and get a lot of heavy truck traffic. The City of Lamberton and Redwood County worked closely together to remove the deteriorating asphalt and replace it with concrete. The sidewalk at the intersections were reconstructed to be ADA compliant.

The city replaced the infrastructure and Bolton & Menk completed the design, construction management services and onsite inspection. The county, which tapped into State Aid funding for the project, paved the road surface with 8" of non-reinforced concrete on a 12" aggregate base and bituminous resurfacing.
