2014 Pavement Management

updated: Monday, November 17, 2014

Current Status
As of November 7, all the streets within the project limits have been paved with the final layer of asphalt.

Construction on Brook Avenue, Coolidge Avenue, Mackey Avenue, Morningside Road, Raleigh Avenue, Toledo Avenue, Utica Avenue, Wooddale Avenue, 41st Street, 42nd Street and 43 1/2 Street is substantially complete.

There is still miscellaneous work to be completed, such as street sign replacement, dormant hydro seeding and site clean up.

We anticipate this work to be completed in the coming days, but do anticipate that some work will carry over until spring based on the upcoming cold and wet weather.

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

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