Riverside Area Phase I

Project Summary:

Project Type:
Street and Utility Improvements

City of Park Rapids


Apex was pleased to partner with the City of Park Rapids, MN to revitalize the Riverside Area, which had been a part of the City’s capital improvement plan for more than five years. The Riverside Area Phase I improvements included the reconstruction of several streets and utilities within the southeast portion of the City of Park Rapids.

Project Details:

The City of Park Rapids identified a trunk line sanitary sewer within the Riverside Area that was in need of replacement. Additionally, the watermain, storm sewer, streets, and sidewalks were also beyond their expected useful life. Apex Engineering Group worked closely with City throughout all phases of the reconstruction.

Following the essential underground utility replacements, the streets were upgraded to the City’s urban standards for curb and gutter, and sidewalk per the City’s sidewalk/trail plan. The span of the work included the reconstruction of 16 blocks and four alleys. The project had significant public involvement including assessments to benefited properties. The corridors were heavily used by private utilities, making coordination and relocation throughout all project phases crucial. The majority of the reconstruction was completed in 2015 with a few remaining elements in the spring of 2016.
