Summer is here in Ideal Township and that means road construction season. There are several upcoming projects planned so keep an eye out for construction workers and traffic slowdowns. Stay alert and be safe especially around road projects.
For summer of 2019, the Ideal Town Board has contracted with the Crow Wing County Highway Department to coordinate our road projects. Weather is always a factor, but we have tentative schedules for a general idea of when our projects will happen:
Sealcoating in July
Will be applying chip sealcoat to the following roads sometime in July:
- Strawberry Lake Road
- Ruttger Road (from CR 16 to Schaller Road)
- Clamshell Cove
- North Clamshell Lane
- Silver Peak Road (Melinda Shores to #37210)
- Harbor Lane (to Harbor Trail)
- Timber Lane
- North Point Drive
- Woodcrest Lane
Resurface & widen Ossi Road in August
Sometime in August, on Ossawinnamakee Road, we will be widening to 24' and resurfacing the first approximately 1.2 miles starting at County Road 39. This project also includes replacement of all mailbox supports on that portion of the road. Expect traffic delays over several days as there is significant dirt work required for this project.
Watch this space for more detailed schedules as we get the information from the work crews.
