MSA Street Reconstruction (Project 16-2 – Mississippi Boulevard Area)
The Contractor for this project is Forest Lake Contracting, Inc. The Contractor's 24-hour emergency contact is Tim Matteson at 651-248-4708. Ron Sample is the City's full-time project inspector, and can be contacted any time to respond to specific questions or concerns. Ron can be reached at 763-257-3874.
The Contractor has tentatively scheduled water service re-establishment from 108th Avenue to Direct River Drive, as well as curb & gutter installations from 109th Lane to 108th Avenue for this Saturday, August 20. Work will begin on re-establishing driveways south of 109th Lane next Tuesday, August 23. Permanent watermain installations will continue from Direct River Drive to Crocus Street all next week. Pavement reclamation is planned from Crocus Street to Xavis Street next week as well.
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.
