Southwest Windom Neighborhood Reconstruction

Reconstruction - Houston Engineering INC.
Southwest Windom Neighborhood Reconstruction

Overview

The City of Minneapolis retained HEI to provide the final design for the reconstruction of 0.86 miles of residential roadway in the Southwest Windom neighborhood.

Background

The City of Minneapolis Public Works Department has an annual program that reconstructs residential street segments in various locations across Minneapolis that are in poor condition and no longer are candidates for resurfacing or rehabilitation. This program identified the Windom neighborhood, and the City retained Houston Engineering, Inc. (HEI) to provide final design for the reconstruction of 0.86 miles of residential roadway.

The Project

The scope of the entire project included full removal of the existing street; subgrade correction; new pavement, curb and gutter, driveways, and sidewalks; ADA compliance; public and private utility improvement and coordination; signage; and pedestrian and traffic signal improvements.

The existing roadways were narrowed to reduce the amount of impervious area and promote slower travel speeds. Bumpouts were included to improve pedestrian safety.

The intersections were realigned to clearly define the roadway limits and vehicular right-of-way to enhance safety. Grading along 61st Street South and Colfax Lane South was revised to meet minimum longitudinal slope standards, which required the installation of new storm sewer mains.

HEI’s responsibilities included:

  • gathering and reviewing site data,
  • supplemental survey as needed,
  • public involvement,
  • final design and plans, and
  • assistance through the bidding process.

  • Improved pavement condition.
  • Narrower roadway reduces the impervious surface area.
  • Bumpouts enhance pedestrian safety and provide traffic calming.
  • Improved intersection geometrics better define the roadway corridor and vehicular right-of-way to enhance safety.
  • Improved longitudinal grading and storm sewer improvements will accommodate grade changes.
  • Replacement of mast arm traffic signal and upgrading to accessible pedestrian signals pedestrian pushbuttons.
