During the 2006 and 2007 construction seasons, Wold Engineering, P.C. worked with the North Dakota Department of Transportation and Bottineau County on an existing county road, known as the Lake Loop, located 8 miles north and three miles east of Bottineau, around Lake Metigoshe. This seven mile stretch of roadway was unique in that it had to be broken down into segments of construction that included grading, re-alignment and 3R improvements.
The plans consisted of re-grading a portion of the roadway to a 35 foot roadbed. It was decided to reclaim the existing bituminous surfacing and aggregate base and use it as a salvaged base course. Another segment of roadway was also realigned to meet the design requirements and provide a safe traveling environment for motorists. The entire project corridor received bituminous pavement during the second phase of the construction.
An existing shared use path had run parallel to the road centerline for a portion of the project and it was proposed to complete the shared use path from the beginning of the project to the existing trail.
Wold Engineering, P.C. completed the Preliminary, Design, Plan Preparation and Construction Engineering of this project.
