TH 97 Goodview/8th ST. Improvements

Project Update: (9-23-2020)

Project is now complete.  There may be construction crews in the area working on miscellaneous items, but we do not anticipate any further traffic impacts.  Thanks you for your patience during this successful construction season.


Contractor continues to work on underground utilities and will complete sanitary and water main improvements this week. Private utilities are also in the area relocating lines to accommodate the new intersection configuration. Once the south portion of the intersection is complete the temporary bypass lanes will be removed and traffic will switch to the new pavement.

Stage 1 Detour

Upcoming Detour Alert (97/Goodview) Starting this Friday Evening, May 15th, our contractor will temporarily close the intersection of T.H. 97 & Goodview Ave/8th St to start construction of the new intersection configuration. We will reopen Highway 97 to traffic in eastbound and westbound directions by early Monday morning. However, closures of Goodview Ave and 8th St will remain closed until further notice.  See below for a copy of the detour map.



As you know, the City of Forest Lake and MnDOT are undertaking a construction project to improve the intersection of Highway 97 & Goodview Ave/8th St. The project includes a new roundabout to replace the existing configuration, including new storm sewer, pedestrian improvements, and bituminous surfacing.
