The City of Big Lake and Sherburne County are undertaking a construction project to improve the roadway and utilities along County Road (CR) 5 (Eagle Lake Road North) between Plymouth Avenue and Park Avenue West. The addition of sidewalk and trail will provide a connection between Highway 10 and Lion's Park. The project includes the reconstruction of the roadway along with drainage and storm sewer improvements, hydrant replacements, concrete curb and gutter, concrete sidewalk, and bituminous trail construction.
Based on very preliminary schedule discussions, no work on CR 5 is expected to occur prior to Spring 2017. Grading associated with the bituminous trail north of Glenwood Avenue may begin the fall. After the bid has been reviewed, additional scheduling details will be available.
