Resident Notice – Projects to begin 1st Week of May

Summer will be here soon and in order to take advantage of the construction season, so too will the 2021 Summer Infrastructure Project begin to take shape.  The city began planning for the 2021 construction project over a year ago with estimates being sought in the Fall of 2020.  As part of the April 13, 2021 City Council meeting, approval was authorized for the 2021 Summer Project that will include repairs to streets (chip sealing or sealing of existing streets with fresh oil and granite chips, mill and overlay with 2 inches of new asphalt, and reclaiming which will grind up existing asphalt and repave with 4 inches), replacement of curbs and sidewalks as required by Americans with Disability Act standards, improved or constructed ADA compliant pedestrian ramps for the improved walkability of our community, and the maintenance and construction of additional trails.

Due to the size and scope of the project, construction crews began with sidewalk and curb replacement the week of May 3rd.  Alley paving will also begin in May and the total project of street work will last through to September of 2021, weather contingent.  Many parts of the community will be affected by the project. Contractors are working to schedule their various portions of the project in order to have the least amount of impact on travel, but the project timeline will span from now through Fall of 2021.

Utility marking crews will begin placing flags for the safety of construction crews so that no interference to utilities will occur.  We ask that these safety identification flags be left in place.  We understand the inconvenience some of the construction may present and appreciate everyone’s understanding as we work to complete these projects as quickly as possible.  Below is a map that highlights the anticipated projects and areas that will be completed.   As City staff learn more about the specific project areas and timelines, more project updates will be provided.  Paper copies of the approved plan are also available at City Hall and updates will be posted on the city website at www.stcharlesmn.org.
