TH 12 West Project by Park Construction

This project is a reconstruction of TH 12 and County Road 90 in Independence, Minnesota. The old intersection had challenging sight lines for entering cars, which contributed to a higher-than-average crash rate. The new intersection will feature a roundabout that will greatly reduce severe crashes and make it easier for traffic to turn onto and from Co. Rd. 90.

Our tasks include:

  • New storm sewer
  • Geomembrane lined pond
  • Reinforced soil slope walls
  • Center concrete barrier
  • New roadway section

This safety-driven project will eliminate head-on crashes on this section of Highway 12. These safety improvements include improved sightlines for motorists, access for walkers and bicyclists crossing Hwy 12, and a wider road overall. The roundabout has also been designed to accommodate future expansion.
