TH 371 Reduced Conflict Intersection

Brainerd, MN

Project Overview

Located north of a signalized segment through Baxter and Brainerd and south of a recently constructed segment between Nisswa and Pequot Lakes, the TH 371 RCI Corridor project was undertaken to improve access and safety at the intersections of Gull Lake Dam Road (CR 125), Green Gables Road (CR 126), and the access to the Brainerd International Raceway (BIR) at Birchdale Road.

Our Work

Partnering with KLJ and HDR, Isthmus demonstrated its growing depth and versatility as a project leader. In addition to quality control and project management, Isthmus team members led the detail roadway design and utility coordination groups, accounted for wetland impacts, and played key roles in right-of-way acquisition and hydraulic analysis.

The delivery of the final designs was facilitated by our long experience with District 3 design standards and geography. The Isthmus team’s direct involvement in the early stages of the TH 371 RCI project, including the traffic study, preliminary geometric layout, and preliminary hydraulic analysis was also key to the seamless and straightforward completion of the final design tasks.
