The 2020 Historic Walker Lake street project includes the reconstruction of Walker Street from the Holiday Gas Station to the railroad tracks. It also includes the realignment of the intersection of Lake Street and Walker Street. A bike lane will be added along Lake Street along with additional sidewalks. Two alleys will be reconstructed east of the railroad tracks. This project also includes stormwater improvements, watermain replacement and LED street lighting. This project has been approved by the St. Louis Park City Council. Construction is expected to begin in May of 2020 with completion in October of 2020.
The preliminary plans have been approved by the city council. Staff will be working with a consultant to develop the final plans.
