The Wright County Highway Department and the City of Maple Lake have collaborated on an intersection safety project that will be constructed in 2018 in the City of Maple Lake. The five (5) leg intersection of Elm Street North & South/Division Street East (Highway 8)/Division Street East (Highway 57)/Highway 8 will be converted into a mini-roundabout that will improve the safety and capacity of the intersection.
The photo to the right shows the proposed layout of the new mini-roundabout intersection.
Landwehr Construction Inc, of Saint Cloud is the prime contractor that will be doing the work on the project.
Work will begin the week of July 2nd and it is expected that the project will be completed by August 6th, weather permitting.
Below are a couple videos from other mini-roundabout projects in Minnesota that provide education on how to navigate a mini-roundabout.
