2020 Phase 4 West Historic District Project

July 10, 2020 Update: Mahtomedi Avenue / TH 244 is expected to be open to traffic on Wednesday of next week. In addition, temporary water hookups and temporary mail boxes will be installed for the area north of Quail Street in the next few business days. You will receive a notice at your house about both the temporary water and temporary mail. Street work will continue to Oak Street, Pine Street, and Quail Street next week.

July 2, 2020 Update: The City’s contractor, Geislinger & Sons, Inc. is planning to open TH 244/Mahtomedi Avenue to full traffic on July 10th or shortly thereafter, depending on the weather. Please continue to follow detour signs as much as possible.  

The shaping and grading of Pine Street and Oak Street will begin next week. Curb and gutter is expected to be poured in the southern project area the week of July 13th. Curb needs five-days to cure so please be prepared to have your vehicles out of your garage for five-days. After the first day you will be able to park in front of your house but not cross the curb with your vehicle (on foot is fine, of course). You will receive a doorhanger notice prior to the work taking place to allow time for you to get cars out. 

The area north of Quail Street will be placed on a temporary water system late next week in preparation for watermain replacement work. Those who live north of Quail Street will receive either a doorhanger or a knock on their door letting them know about the temporary water system.

June 15, 2020 Update: The City’s contractor, Geislinger & Sons, Inc. is planning to finish watermain work on Oak Street, Tip Top Lane, Pine Street, and Neptune Street the week of June 15th. Next, the contractor will be reinstalling a traffic detour for TH244/Mahtomedi Avenue likely the week of June 22nd so they have space to complete storm sewer installation.

Shortly thereafter, the area north of Quail Street will be placed on a temporary water system in preparation for watermain replacement work.
