The project included the reconstruction and widening of CSAH 3 to four lanes from the Sauk Rapids Bridge in downtown Sauk Rapids to US Highway 10, and included construction of new roundabouts at the intersections with two city streets. The widening necessitated the acquisition of 19 homes and relocation of those residents, as well as relocation of city utilities. The project also included the construction of a six-foot-wide sidewalk on one side of the corridor and a ten-foot-wide multi-use trail on the other to provide multi-modal traffic with a much needed connection between the residential and commercial areas of Sauk Rapids. Traffic was carried throughout construction to maintain access to businesses and homes along the corridor.
