2022 Street Reconstruction (C.P. 22-02)

Update 8/15/22: The final lift of asphalt has been paved.  Punch list items remain to be completed.  The City will be working on pulling together final costs over the next few weeks and residents will be notified by mail for the final public hearing as well as options for making assessment payments.

Update 5/5/22: Reclamation of the streets is underway.  Next week starting on Monday, weather permitting, there will be five separate one day road closures for storm sewer construction and culvert replacements. The closures will be identified with barricades.  If you live within the section of the closure, you can drive around the barricades to access your home but will likely only be able to access your property from one direction, depending where you live. When work is being done at the two entrances to the neighborhood at 170th Avenue and 171st Street, please use the other entrance to the neighborhood. The Anoka Hennepin School District has been notified and will coordinate any alternate bus pick up locations.  If you have specific questions for them, the AHSD #11 Transportation Department phone number is (763) 506-1125.  See attached location map (click here) for the location of the closures and a map for getting around them within the neighborhood.

Update 5/3/22:  The contractor has begun construction.  Storm sewer improvements will take place first followed by reclamation of the existing streets.  After the first lift of asphalt has been placed with the bituminous curb, restoration work will follow behind the curb line.  Once restoration is completed, the final bituminous wearing course will be paved. Residents impacted by construction should have received a project update letter in the mail in mid April with additional information provided.

Update 4/21/22:  Northwest Asphalt was the low bidder for the project.  Construction staking is underway.  Next week the contractor will begin by installing erosion control items.  Late next week grading behind the curb will likely begin.  The contractor anticipates being done with construction by mid summer, weather depending.

Each year the roadway segments that are in the most need of repair throughout the City are reconstructed as a portion of the City of Andover’s street reconstruction program.  The street reconstruction projects are identified in the City’s Capital Improvement Plan.  Scheduled for reconstruction in 2022 are the Timber River Estates and Rolling Meadows Estates developments (see attached location map) .  These developments are in the northwest corner of the City, west of 7th Avenue and north of 169th Lane.

The project will consist of reclaiming the existing bituminous roadway, shaping the existing gravel, constructing bituminous curb and gutter, minor storm sewer improvements / repairs, and constructing a new bituminous surface.  

The project will be funded from the City’s Road & Bridge Fund, with 25% of the total project costs for the improvements assessed to the benefiting properties as identified in the City’s Roadway Reconstruction Assessment Policy.

A neighborhood meeting was held with affected residents in the summer of 2021.  We anticipate that construction will begin in early May of 2022, with the project being completed by late summer 2022.
