The method of turf restoration that was used is called hydroseeding. Hydroseeding is a process by which...

2013 MSA Street Rehabiliation - Parkdale Drive

The project will be constructed under traffic. However, there may be temporary nighttime closures. Motorists will be guided through the work zone during the periods of temporary lane closures. Temporary traffic lane closures will occur next to work areas resulting in single lane traffic in each direction. Access to driveway entrances and intersections...

2013 Street Sealcoating

Ice Control Practices

The city has a council adopted Snow Removal / Ice Control Policy which provides for snow removal activities and establishes priorities for how this is accomplished. The council has not established a "bare pavement" or ice free (safety) requirement. Use of chemical and or sand applications have been reduced due to environmental and budgetary...

Park Center Blvd Traffic Signal

Parking: Winter Ban

If your vehicle is ticketed or plowed-in, dig it out immediately and move it to a driveway, garage or plowed street. City ordinance prohibits vehicles from parking within 50 feet (about two car lengths) of any snow left behind when plows went around parked cars. You can be ticketed and towed if you park too close to an unplowed area of the street.

Pavement Management

The City of St. Louis Park pavement management program, along with the street maintenance program, was created to facilitate proper maintenance of road surfaces. The city uses various strategies to maintain the asphalt (blacktop) surfaces such as: patch and repair, crack sealing, seal coating, mill and overlay, and reconstruction.

See the Local Street Rehabilitation article for information on pavement management projects scheduled for 2013.

Pothole Repair

Pothole patching on city streets is done year round. Patching in the winter and spring months is done with material called "cold mix," which is more workable at cold winter temperatures. Regular city pothole patching with "hot mix" asphalt begins in May when asphalt plants re-open for the season. Hot mix asphalt is more durable...

Seasonal Load Limits

If you or someone you hire drives a truck that weighs more than 6 tons per axle, please be aware there are special road restrictions in late winter and early spring. Vehicle weight restrictions protect roadways when the road base is soft and subsurface drainage is limited because the soil is only partly thawed. As a result, the city follows the Minnesota...

Special Assessments for Road Construction

Special assessment payments are due November 15. Property owners pay a portion of the assessment, plus interest, over a period of years with the annual real estate taxes. Typically, special assessments are paid over a 20 year time period. Certified special assessments also may be paid in full at any time. Usually, special assessments must be paid...

Street Sweeping

Our mission is to clean city streets to provide safe conditions for all modes of transportation. All city streets are swept twice a year – in the spring and again in the fall. It is important to remember that sweeping grass clippings and leaves into the street is not only bad for our local lakes, creeks and rivers; it is also a violation of...

Treating Icy Road Conditions

The City of St. Louis Park has developed a strategy on salt usage in its winter maintenance plan. According to Environmental Protections Agency standards and the Minnehaha Watershed District, a higher chloride level has been noticed in Minnehaha Creek contributed by salt usage. As a result of increased public sentiment of environmental and...
