Construction monitoring for Pleasure Island Road was approved by the Eagle River city council recently along with creating the roadway design in preparation for a request for proposals this fall for the estimated $1,166,657 project from Highway 45 at Highway G south to Highway 45 across from Airport Road.
MSA was awarded the design phase for a lump sum of $89,740 and construction monitoring at a not- to-exceed cost of $63,350.
The project includes the entire length of Pleasure Island Road to be reconstructed including milling and relaying, culverts to improve drainage, drive aprons and pavement with geo-grid, base course and asphalt surface.
A bike path and bike lanes will be incorporated into the project and a six foot wide sidewalk will extend north from the school campus to Highway 45. The south one-way portion will be 18 feet wide and include a 10 foot wide bike path separated from the roadway. The two-way portion will be 34 feet wide and include two 5 foot wide paved shoulders for bike access and 12 foot driving lanes.
There will be a 600 square foot thermoplastic surface for snowmobile crossing.
Construction is expected to begin next May with $750,000 funding from a state grant. The remainder of funds will come from the city along with a commitment of $120,000 from Northland Pines. Completion is anticipated September, 2021.
