CSAH & MnDOT Cooperative Projects
The City sometimes works with other agencies to complete street projects as part of the Cooperative Projects program. These projects are primarily the reconstruction or rehabilitation of street segments, bridges, pathways, or streetscapes that fall within city limits. The program funds the City's cost participation in these projects. Oftentimes projects funded with this program are funded through a variety of funding sources.
A large portion of the Hennepin County State-Aid highways (CSAH) system was constructed in the mid to late 1950s and is at or past the end of their serviceable lives. Streets in the system are exhibiting signs of severe deterioration, which requires improvements within the right-of-way to improve mobility and safety for all users and modes of travel. County streets also typically have high levels of pedestrian, bicycle, and transit demand, in addition to higher traffic volumes. These are typically reconstruction projects involving the entire right-of-way and include new sidewalks, ADA pedestrian ramps, pavement, curb and gutter, and utility improvements, with considerations for signal improvements, new signage, pavement markings, and bikeways where applicable.
