The Crow Wing County Highway Department entered into a contract with Anderson Brothers Construction for full-depth reclamation, centerline culvert replacement and bituminous surfacing on County Highway 22, from Highway 25 to County Highway 8, and on County Highway 26, from County Highway 8 to Highway 169.
Construction work will begin Tuesday, May 28, with centerline culvert replacements beginning at the west end of County Highway 22 and proceed east. There are 25 centerline culverts that will be replaced, and it will take about three weeks to complete.
Full-depth reclamation operations will begin June 10, where the pavement is removed, ground up for use with the base and new pavement added. Reclaiming and final shaping of the subgrade will take about two weeks. Paving operations will begin the week of June 24. The contractor anticipates paving and aggregate shouldering operations to take three weeks.
Final seeding, mailbox supports and pavement markings will take place after mainline paving.
Traffic will be controlled with signals, flaggers and a pilot car. Expect delays and use caution while traveling through the construction zone. Weather permitting, all construction work is scheduled to be completed by the end of July.
Gravel placement will continue Tuesday, May 21, with final grading taking place Wednesday. In a news release, the county told motorists to expect delays and use caution while traveling on County Highway 3 and the First Assessment District roads listed above.
