Short Elliott Hendrickson will do the final design engineering for the next phase of the Lake Elmo Avenue road project, after the Washington County Board of Commissioners approved a $148,700 amendment to the company’s original project contract Nov. 28.

Washington County has partnered with Lake Elmo to coordinate improvements to the Lake Elmo Avenue corridor. The project includes installation of sanitary sewer and water main, reconstruction of roadways and stormwater management.

The next phase of the project is work on Lake Elmo Avenue from 10th Street North to 600 feet south of 30th Street North, through the residential area of Lake Elmo east and south of the city. The project will improve operations and safety along the corridor and improve pavement quality while accommodating current and future traffic.

The project will be paid for with highway state aid funds. Construction is expected next summer.
