SARTELL -- The city of Sartell is reminding residents that the Stearns County Road 1 reconstruction project is getting underway soon.

Work crews will begin by moving equipment into the area and relocating private utilities this week.

The multi-phase project will include an 8-foot-wide paved trail from Sartell Street to 12th Street North, multiple Mississippi River overlooks, a new pedestrian bridge, a facelift to Watab and Veterans Parks, and improved safety measures.

Phase 1 of the project will be from 4th Street North to 7th Street North.

The timing for the remaining phases is weather dependent.
