2014 Projects



Construction Bids

updated: Friday, July 18, 2014

As required by state law, the City of St. Louis Parks Engineering Department uses the competitive-bidding process for certain contracts estimated to cost over $100,000. Generally, the competitive-bidding process involves publication of an advertisement to solicit sealed bids and an award of the contract to the "lowest responsible bidder"...


2014 Pavement Management

updated: Monday, October 27, 2014

Current Status
Valley Paving has made considerable progress in the last few days and is expecting to have the majority of the project completed by Friday, Oct. 31.

All streets now have the first layer of asphalt on them. Many of you have been asking for a date on the various sidewalk segments. We are making replacement of the missing segments a priority and will fall back and tie the outwalk segments as time permits.

Concrete is in short supply in the upper Midwest due to a number of factors outside of our control. Our contractor will be placing concrete as it becomes available. Our goal is to have all the missing segments of concrete and any holes that need to be backfilled completed prior to Halloween evening.

The contractor also anticipates a lot of asphalt paving later next week.

The following is an update for the various streets within the project limits:

Wooddale AvenueThe concrete sidewalk is being formed up and will be poured early next week. Valley anticipates having the road open Friday, Oct. 31 afternoon to all traffic. Until then, please continue to use the posted detour.

Morningside Road - The concrete sidewalk and outwalks are expected to be poured early next week.

Toledo Avenue - The concrete sidewalk and outwalks are expected to be poured early next week.

41st Street - The concrete sidewalk and outwalks are expected to be poured early next week.

42nd StreetThe concrete sidewalk and outwalks are expected to be poured early next week.

43 1/2 Street - The first layer of asphalt will be placed as time allows.

Brook Avenue - Brook Avenue was not paved yesterday as originally indicated.  This street is now anticipated to be paved with the second layer of asphalt next week or early November.

Mackey Avenue and Coolidge Avenue - These streets are waiting for the final layer of asphalt late next week or the first week of November.

Utica Avenue - The concrete sidewalk and outwalks are expected to be poured early next week.

Raleigh Avenue - This segment of roadway is substantially complete.

We thank you for your patience during this construction season.

Project Description
Each year the city rehabilitates several miles of local residential streets. For the 2014 project, the streets to be rehabilitated are located primarily in the Browndale Neighborhood, with some work occurring in the Minikahda Vista and Triangle Neighborhoods (see map).

The project includes:

  • Removing the asphalt pavement and replacing it with a new surface
  • Curb replacement, if needed (Those areas where the curb is broken or has settled, and now creates an area of standing water)
  • Storm sewer inlets, at the corners of the blocks, may also be rebuilt and old hydrants will be replaced
  • Watermain replacement on Mackey Avenue, Utica Avenue, Brook Avenue, Raleigh Avenue and Toledo Avenue


Timeline
The project started in June and is expected to last into October.
