Work will begin on the Riverview Creek culvert replacement west of Uplander Street on Monday, July 18. Tree removals from 109th Lane to Xavis Street will take place next week. Trees to be removed have been marked with a pink "X". New curb and gutter installations will occur on phase 2 of Mississippi Boulevard from Coon Rapids Boulevard to 109th Lane the week of July 18. Existing curb and driveway removals, as well as permanent watermain installations, will begin next week from 109th Lane to Crocus Street. Reclamation of the asphalt pavement on Mississippi Boulevard from 109th Lane to Crocus Street is planned to begin July 20.
Property owners are advised to remove landscaping encroachments that currently exist in the public right of way in order to avoid damage from watermain and service installations. Residential property lines measure to 15 feet from the back of curb. The City's contractor will not be responsible for replacing these items if damaged.
Residents should note the location of their water service shut off (marked with a blue flag and paint). The Contractor will require an area of 17 feet (measured from back of curb) to 10 feet (5-feet either side of the service) for excavation to replace these water service shut offs. If property owners have any questions regarding removals for water service replacements, they should contact the City Inspector Ron Sample at 763-257-3874 for more information.
