WEEKLY UPDATES

5/6/24
The street project made good progress this past week with mobilization to the site, erosion/sediment control installation, and full depth pavement reclamation of the entire project area. Beginning first thing Monday (5/6/24) the contractor plans to replace the culvert west of Dyer Lane and the rest of the week continue with subgrade preparation and grading/compaction of the new reclaim material. Next week (week of 5/13) the contractor plans to install the curb and gutter and tolerance the reclaim surface. Weather permitting, the contractor is planning to begin paving as early as the week of May 20th.

As a reminder, the contractor can replace your entire driveway in addition to the work being done with the street project. If you are interested, please call Jesse Eystad at 612-368-4448 if you would like a quote to perform this additional work. Time is of the essence as the contractor is planning to begin paving as early as the week of May 20th, weather permitting.

4/29/24
The contractor is planning to mobilize first thing next week (week of 4/29) and will begin by setting up traffic control signage, erosion control, and perform various removals. This will be followed by pavement removals/reclamation and the culvert replacement later in the week, weather permitting. According to the schedule provided by the contractor, the duration of active construction will last roughly five weeks with a substantial completion date of June 28th.

The City expects that the contractor will limit the time in which the road is closed and the most significant impacts to access will occur during the pavement removal/reclamation process, replacement of a culvert crossing Manor Road, and roadway paving. During those times, thru-traffic will be routed around the north side of the project area along Cottagewood Road. Residents within the project area will still have access to their driveways for the duration of the project, although with some inconvenience at times.

Below you will find the weekly newsletter that includes more detailed information on the project, along with the initial resident letters that were sent out:
