Roundabout Planned for Heritage Drive/River Road in Sartell
SARTELL -- Plans are in the works to improve traffic flow along Heritage Drive and Stearns County Road 1 in Sartell.
County Engineer Jodi Teich says the project includes a roundabout at that intersection.
Teich says next spring, MnDOT will add additional turn lanes from Highway 15 onto County Road 1. Stearns County will then add lanes on County Road 1 up to the roundabout at Heritage Drive.
Teich says the city also wanted improved access from the businesses on LeSauk Drive, so they will will tie-in Evergreen Drive behind G-Allens Bar to add a 5th leg into the roundabout.
Teich says they are in the design stages now and are working with affected property owners to secure the necessary right-of-way.
The project is scheduled to begin in the spring of 2016.
