2021 Construction Projects

Foley Boulevard (CSAH 11) Railway Grade Separation

Project improvements include reconstruction of Foley Boulevard, from a 4-lane undivided roadway to a 4-lane divided roadway with turn lanes and multi-use trail, with an overpass at the Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) Railroad tracks. The project will improve public safety and reduce traffic congestion on CSAH 11 by constructing the bridge over the BNSF railway.  This project is scheduled to be completed by October 2022.

The bridge contractor continued to work on the east pier and east abutment, started installing MSE walls on the west side of the new railroad overpass, and removed all trees throughout the project. The grading contractor continued to bring in sand (fill) material to achieve the final height of the new road alignment.

Update for the Week Ending November 19:
Next week, construction will continue with pier and abutment work, MSE wall installation, tree removal and trucking in sand.  This will continue until Mid-December.
