Subject:    Consider Joint Powers Agreement with Anoka County for Hanson Boulevard Reconstruction, Project 17-30
Submitted For: Tim Himmer From: Sarah Greene, Administrative Assistant II

Council is asked to approve a Joint Powers Agreement (JPA) with Anoka County for the reconstruction of Hanson Boulevard (CSAH 78) from 400' south of Northdale Boulevard (CSAH 11) to Main Street (CSAH 14).

Hanson Boulevard is a major north-south arterial roadway serving the City of Coon Rapids and area communities, and traffic volumes have steadily increased over the last decade. The segment between Northdale Boulevard and Main Street has been identified by Anoka County as needing major safety and capacity improvements. The County has planned improvements to this segment of Hanson Boulevard that include reconstruction of the roadway, drainage system, trail, and traffic control systems, as well as other utilities. At its July 5, 2016 meeting, City Council approved Resolution No. 16-76 supporting the County's application for Federal funding. Federal funds were granted for a portion of the project, and construction is planned to begin in 2020.

HDR has prepared plans and specifications to address these issues including intersection turning movement treatments, extended medians, and a multi-use pedestrian trail. An overview of the project is detailed in Exhibit A of the attached JPA. The County will be responsible to perform project management and administration, and provide construction inspection.

The attached JPA details terms of cost sharing, right of way, construction activities, project oversight, and current and future maintenance of the infrastructure and traffic signal systems.

Staff recommends Council approve the execution of a Joint Powers Agreement (JPA) with Anoka County for improvements to Hanson Boulevard (CSAH 78) from 400' south of Northdale Boulevard (CSAH 11) to Main Street (CSAH 14).

The total estimated cost of the project is $4,852,850.90, with federal funds covering $2,321,700.00.

The total estimated cost to the City is $744,162.24, with a balance of $426,845.55 following eligible federal item reductions. City funding breakdowns for the project include $333,135.49 from Municipal State Aid (MSA), and $93,710.06 from the Water Fund (601).
