Concrete Streets Rehabilitation

The purpose of the Concrete Streets Rehabilitation Program is to extend the life of some concrete city streets. This program is similar to the Asphalt Pavement Resurfacing Program with the objective to improve and maintain the roadway infrastructure. The goal is to target concrete streets that with proper concrete repair will extend the street’s life to improve ride quality and support neighborhood livability.

Program Background

An Explanation of Concrete Rehabilitation

Concrete streets generally deteriorate over time as water and salt enter joints and cracks. Poor drainage, underlying soil condition, and higher traffic volumes can accelerate the deterioration. The repair of concrete primarily consists of saw cutting, removing and replacing concrete joints that have deteriorated and other pavement distresses. Other repair techniques include removal and replacement of concrete panels if it is determined the condition of the concrete does not warrant salvaging the panel pavement. Other improvements within the project limits include upgrades to select pedestrian ramps, replacement of select curb and gutter, and a diamond grind resurfacing of the street pavement. For this type of work, it is anticipated that less than 25% of the pavement will be replaced. Concurrent with the street work, utility improvements will be completed associated with gas, water and sewer.

Project Areas

Waite Park (2019-2020)

Concrete street rehabilitation will be continued in the Waite Park neighborhood in 2019 and 2020. These concrete streets were constructed in 1967 and 1968 and are good candidates for concrete repair and resurfacing.

Project Status

Project Status: Construction

Schedule

The City of Minneapolis’ concrete rehab project will start tentatively on August 14, 2019.  The City will start the project in the SE portion of the project.  It is anticipated that a portion of the project will be completed in 2019, and the remainder will be completed in 2020.

Before the construction activities start, the street will be marked out for repair. As the construction date gets closer, advance notice signage will be placed on the street.  Notices will be delivered to residents whose block will start construction in advance of the work.  Additionally, if a driveway will be directly impacted, the contractor will notify you in advance of the work. They will leave a flyer at your front door, so please be sure to check this area regularly if work is taking place on your block. The advance notice for driveway work will be given the day before driveway impacts will begin.

Additionally, CenterPoint Energy will perform utility work either before or concurrent with street reconstruction.  They are upgrading gas mains and services. For more information on CenterPoint Energy's work, please visit CenterPoint Energy's Waite Park project page.

Traffic Impact

When the City’s contractor is actively working on a block, they will close the block to through traffic. If there are no driveways on a block, they may keep the block closed to traffic until all of the work is complete on the block. If your block is being worked on, please consider parking in your alley (if present) or on an adjacent street. Please give yourself extra time and be prepared to go in an alternate direction than intended. If your driveway is impacted, please be prepared to not use the driveway for a few days.  The contractor will work to minimize inconveniences, but there will be equipment and people that will need to work on the street to make these improvements. 

Additionally, due to the nature of concrete, it can take up to several days to gain the strength that it needs to allow traffic to drive on it.  This means that there will be times when there are lane closures and no one will be actively working on the street. If traffic drives on new concrete too soon, it could lead to cracking of the new pavement.  This could require the work activities to be re-done and additional inconveniences.  Emergency vehicles always have priority through our construction projects, and they will not hesitate to do what they need to do to respond to an emergency.

If you have special mobility concerns, such as handicapped parking or Metro Mobility pickups and drop-offs, please reach out to the project team so we can work with you to maintain your transportation access.

Traffic Impact

The purpose of the Concrete Streets Rehabilitation Program is to extend the life of some concrete city streets. This program is similar to the Asphalt Pavement Resurfacing Program with the objective to improve and maintain the roadway infrastructure. The goal is to target concrete streets that with proper concrete repair will extend the street’s life to improve ride quality and support neighborhood livability.

Concrete streets generally deteriorate over time as water and salt enter joints and cracks. Poor drainage, underlying soil condition, and higher traffic volumes can accelerate the deterioration. The repair of concrete primarily consists of saw cutting, removing and replacing concrete joints that have deteriorated and other pavement distresses. Other repair techniques include removal and replacement of concrete panels if it is determined the condition of the concrete does not warrant salvaging the panel pavement. Other improvements within the project limits include upgrades to select pedestrian ramps, replacement of select curb and gutter, and a diamond grind resurfacing of the street pavement.

Scope

The proposed project is part of the Concrete Streets Rehabilitation Program. Penn-Oliver Ave S was constructed in 1970 and is a good candidate for concrete repair and resurfacing. Concurrent with the street work, utility improvements will be completed associated with gas, and sewer.
