Countywide Bituminous Mill & Overlay Project

The Ramsey County Board of Commissioners authorized a $10 wheelage tax, beginning this year, for all vehicles registered in Ramsey County.  The County anticipates that the wheelage tax will generate $3.8 million which will go directly to the resurfacing of roadways.  The following projects are a result of the wheelage tax for the 2014 construction season.  The projects include removal and replacement of concrete pedestrian ramps, spot repairs of curb and gutter, and milling and overlaying the top surface of the roadway.

 

Ramsey County in cooperation with the Cities of Arden Hills, Shoreview, Roseville, St. Paul, Maplewood, St. Anthony Village, Vadnias Heights, and Little Canada is planning the bituminous mill and overlay of several concrete County roadways in the construction season of 2014.

**7/29/2014 Concrete Rehabilitation Update**

The traffic on Larpenteur Avenue continues to be reduced to one lane in each direction.  Ti Zak will be installing the curb, sidewalk and median noses this week.  Bituminous Roadways will patching in at the ends of the concrete pavement. The work at Dale Street is taking longer than anticipated.  In order to finish the Dale Street signal system, Xcel Energy needed to relocate the existing utility pole on the southwest corner of the intersection.  Delays from Xcel Energy are a result of the flooding and storms that hit the metro area in mid June.  During this time the intersection of Dale Street and Larpenteur Avenue will remain in a four way stop situation.  Other utility relocations in this area have already been completed.  Victoria Intersection will remain in a three way stop situation until the signal power is provided.

Parkway Drive is reduced to one lane in both directions.   Larpenteur Avenue east of Parkway Drive has been reopened to traffic.  Collins Electric is installing the new signal systems at Parkway Drive & Larpenteur Avenue.  Traffic at Parkway and Larpenteur intersection is being controlled with a three-way stop situation. 
 
County Highway 96 is a roadway that is in overall great condition with some minor deterioration.  While in the corridor the County is repairing deteriorated concrete crosswalks and minor pavement distresses from US Highway 10 to I-35E.  The colored concrete cross walks have been rapidly deteriorating over the past couple of years.  The crosswalks are being replaced with regular colored concrete.  Addressing minor pavement distresses at this time will prevent larger distresses from occurring in the near future.  County Highway 96 is currently reduced to one lane in each direction from Dale Street to Centerville Road. This will continue throughout this phase the concrete rehabilitation project.  A traffic change is scheduled for Wednesday, July 30th, for moving motorists on 96 to the outside lanes.  Motorists should expect this phase of the rehab to continue into the week of Aug 11th.
 
The work on White Bear Avenue from US 61 to County Road F is scheduled to begin on Aug. 4th.
