2017 Street Improvement Project

2017 Champlin Street Improvements Project:

Improvement Project No. 21603

This project was started back in May and is scheduled for completion in September. The project area extends from Hennepin Landing to River Shore Lane on the Mississippi River.  The improvements include: street reconstruction, new curb and curbing repairs, storm sewer, and sanitary sewer updates. This project also includes the parking lot reconstruction at the Ice Forum.

2017 Street Improvement Project: Lighting

St. Paul-style neighborhood street lights will be replacing the current street lights in the project area. These lights are 14 feet tall and equipped with a 100 Watt bulb. They provide pedestrians a pleasant walking and biking experience during night-time hours. The cul-de-sacs in the project area, which have historically been dark, will also have these light installed making them safer areas for night travel.

Thank You,

Kurt

2017 Champlin Street Improvements Project:

  • Roads will be drivable throughout the project and there will always be at least 1 lane for access.
  • Storm sewer work zones will cover approximately two lots at a time.
  • Driveways will be replaced with concrete or asphalt to match.
  • When the curb goes in, there will be a 5-day dry period. Residents will be asked to park on the street during this time.
  • There is a small time gap where no construction work will be done between the curbing process and the fine grading process.
  • New neighborhood street lights will be installed in all of the cul-de-sacs.
  • In areas that storm sewer is being installed, 6 feet from the curb into the yard will be disturbed. In areas that only new curb is being installed, 3-4 feet of the yard will be disturbed.
  • The contractor will plug the sprinkler systems by kinking the lines near the road. During the project, other zones of resident’s sprinkler system can be used. If water from a system is flooding the street, the resident will need to turn off the water. The contract will pay for the replacement of any damaged systems and an irrigation specialist will be used for the installation.
  • An assessment hearing will be held on October 10, 2017 at a city council meeting. Letters will be sent to residents in September.
