ST. CLOUD -- The St. Cloud City Council is being asked to approve a Cooperative Construction Agreement for this spring's Highway 23 resurfacing project.

The Minnesota Department of Transportation will be milling off the old pavement and laying down a new layer from one block west of Highway 15 to Cooper Avenue.

The city's portion of the project will cover the relocation of fire hydrants for pedestrian ramp reconstruction and fiber optic connections to the traffic light system.

The project requires a local cost share of $234,000. It will be paid for with about $40,000 coming from the city's Utility Revenue funds and the remaining $184,500 coming from Minnesota State Aid funds.

The work will get underway May 14th and be completed at the end of June.

Traffic will be reduced to one lane at times with paving taking place at night.
