We ask that no vehicles are parked on these streets starting at 7:00 am tomorrow. After the pavement is removed, the road can be driven on. The contractor will work with the trash company to ensure trash gets picked up as normal.

If you need immediate assistance please contact the onsite project inspector Dylan Casey at 612-283-7466.

The contractor will be removing the Wedgewood Drive Trail today and placing new asphalt on Kale St, Glendale Alley, and the Wedgewood Drive Trail on Thursday. For residents that have driveways off of the Wedgewood Drive Trail, there be a 1 hour delay after pavement is placed before vehicles can access driveways to allow the pavement to sufficiently cool. The Wedgewood Drive Trail will be closed today and Thursday so we can complete this work.

April 28, 2021 - The contractor will be replacing watermain gate valves and pouring new concrete curb the remainder of the week and into next week.  If you are impacted by a water shutdown, a notice will be provided the day before the shutdown. Also, if there is new concrete being installed near your driveway we ask that you have vehicles moved out of your driveway by 7am on the day the work is to begin. To allow the concrete to properly cure, we ask that you do not drive on the new concrete for a minimum of 72 hours after the concrete is poured. This area will be roped off until it’s ready to be driven on. A notice will be provided to you the day before the work begins. Please check your front door every day for important construction notices. Thank you for your patience as we work to complete this project.

April 22, 2021 - The 2021 Construction season is about to begin! The City’s contractor, North Valley, Inc. is planning to begin work within the project area the week of April 26th, weather permitting.  The contractor will begin with replacing deficient curb and isolated small utility replacements. Following this work, the contractor will mill the existing pavement. Milling of the pavement is tentatively scheduled the weeks of May 17th and May 24th with placement of the new layer of asphalt during  the weeks of May 31st and June 7th. It is likely that you will not see work taking place every day during this timeframe. There will likely be days of activity and days where the contractor is not on your street because they moved on to another area of the project and will be back to finish work at a later date. Please note that the schedule is subject to change. More detailed schedule information will be provided via email for those who have signed up for email updates.  

For some properties, this work will require a water shut down. 

Water Shut Downs - Watermain replacement activities will be taking place in select locations. This work requires a water shut down for users so that the watermain is inactive for the contractor to complete the replacements. These water shut downs will be communicated to you at least 24 hours in advance and will be scheduled to take place within the hours of 9am and 3pm.  

Curb Replacement - You will notice that some concrete curb is being replaced with this project. The curb that is replaced has been specifically chosen by the project team, in partnership with Public Works, in an effort to improve drainage issues where feasible. The scope of  this project is not to fix every drainage issue or to replace long stretches of curb, but rather to replace segments that may have the greatest impact on solving a drainage issue. If curb is being replaced in front of your driveway, you will be asked to park outside of your driveway for 5-days to allow for the curb to fully cure. Dylan Casey will communicate this to residents ahead of time.

May 3, 2021 Update - The 2021 construction season is underway!  The Contractor is scheduled to begin construction within the Quail Street, Spruce Street, Rose Street, and Tamarack Street portion of the project the week of May 3rd.  Improvements along East Shore Drive will be scheduled following the utility construction along the Quail Street, Spruce Street, Rose Street, and Tamarack Street. The following items are anticipated to take place the week of May 3rd:

  • Installation of temporary water in anticipation of watermain replacement.  Once the temporary watermain is in place, the Contractor will coordinate directly with property owners to disconnect for the existing watermain and connect into the temporary watermain.  Property owners will be on the temporary watermain until the newly installed main is operational.
  • Installation of erosion control.
  • Installation of temporary mailboxes near 38 Briarwood Avenue.  The contractor will let property owners know once mail delivery is transferred to the temporary location.  Property owners will continue to retrieve their mail from the temporary location for the duration of the project.
  • Roadway pavement removals along Spruce Street, Rose Street, and Tamarack Street.

 

Please note: working hours for the City of Mahtomedi are 7:00 AM to 8:00 PM Monday through Friday and 8:00AM to 5:00 PM on Saturdays.  There will likely be times that  access through the project area will be limited to accommodate construction operations.  Please be patient and allow for additional time when driving through the project.

 

STAKING ON THE PROJECT

Stakes set within the project boundaries tell the contractor where new pipe and drainage structures go for the storm sewer and watermain.  This includes where manholes must be raised or lowered and hydrants moved.  Stakes are marked with pink paint or ribbon and are offset from the actual pipe or structure.

 

Please be careful not to disturb the stakes or move them from their original locations.
