Stearns County To Construct Roundabout Along County Road 1
SARTELL -- Another roundabout will be coming to the Sartell area this summer.
City Engineer Mike Nielson says in connection to the road projects they will be working on, Stearns County plans to build a five legged roundabout near the intersection of LeSauk and Heritage.
"The intersections of LeSauk and Heritage have been a traffic control nightmare for several years so this project will help eliminate some of the congestion out there,” says Nielson.
To make room for the roundabout the county plans to reconstruct County Road 1 from Highway 15 to Heritage drive from a two lane to a four lane road.
Nielson says MnDot will also be working on a project along Highway 15 adding a duel left turn lane at the intersection.
Plans to begin the projects are scheduled for early May and should take a majority of the summer to complete.
Last year Sartell completed three roundabouts along Pinecone Road.
