175th Avenue/Kemmer Road Intersection

About

Project Description

The existing intersection at 175th Avenue and Kemmer Road experiences inefficiencies in traffic flow at peak travel times due to its current four-way stop configuration. Traffic volumes at the intersection are projected to increase with anticipated growth in the area, which warrants improvements that will better handle existing and future volumes, resulting in improved traffic flow.


Several concepts will be analyzed during the preliminary design phase. With input from the public, the selected alternative will be taken through final design and into construction.


Funding Information

This $5 million project is funded through the MSTIP Bonding Cost-sharing program. The total project cost includes the estimated cost of design, right-of-way and construction and is subject to change.
