With spring load restrictions now removed from local streets, the contractor from last summer's Pavement Management project can begin the process of completing the work remaining in the neighborhood.
Punch list work
- The city's contractor, Northdale Construction, is working this week on miscellaneous punch list items and preparing areas for concrete installation and sod installation.
- The concrete subcontractor is scheduled to start concrete installation on Tuesday, May 21 (weather dependent).
- The installation of new sod will also begin on Tuesday, May 21.
- The contractor will be responsible for watering and maintaining the new sod for the first 30 days. After the 30 days is complete, the city and contractor will inspect and correct any areas of failing sod.
- After the 30 day warranty period, it will become the responsibility of the property owner to water and maintain the sod. The city will not be replacing sod after the 30 day warranty period.
- The paving of bituminous driveways and bituminous street patches will happen soon after the new concrete has had time to cure and strengthen.
This punch list work will take approx. 3-4 weeks to finish completely. The contractor expects to be done by mid-June.
The city's Pavement Management Program proactively address the condition of the residential streets within the city. The program was developed in 2003 to extend pavement life and enhance system-wide performance in a cost-effective and efficient way by providing the right pavement strategy and the right time. In addition to the street and utility work, the city council has provided staff direction to look at all aspects of the neighborhood livability and "living streets" considerations as a part of our transportation projects. As part of project development, staff has review the street, utilities, fiber, sidewalk network, storm water runoff, traffic management and tree preservation.
The 2018 Pavement Management Project will be performed in area six of the city's eight pavement management areas, and includes work in the Elmwood, Brooklawns and Brookside neighborhoods.
The 2018 project is included in the Capital Improvement Program approved by the St. Louis Park City Council. These improvements are proposed to be paid for using city funds; there are no proposed assessments to property owners for this project.
