Project Update 10 - October 28th, 2022
The Contractor has completed the final pavement lift in your area. Starting next week October 31, the Contractor will be sawing and sealing control joints in the new streets. This work entails sawing the pavement and filling the cuts with a sealant. This application is similar to having control joints in concrete.

The Contractor will return to complete minor close out items. Please see the emailed public notice for further details.
Project Update 09 - October 21st, 2022

Next week, the contractor will continue paving the first lift of asphalt on Monday October 17th. Contractor will begin at 7:00 a.m. each day, weather permitting. We ask that you please stay off the new pavement while the paving operation is taking place. You will have access to your driveway at the end of the day. This allows for the asphalt to cure and will produce the best final product. Residents within the paving areas may park on West Moore Lake Drive or adjacent streets that were previously paved the day prior. Please see emailed public notice for further details.

Project Update 05 - September 23rd, 2022
The Contractor will begin street reclamation on Tuesday September 27th in the project streets. Street reclamation grinds the first 6”-8” of the existing roadway into a suitable aggregate base for the new pavement. The Contractor will immediately follow the street reclamation with grading to prepare the base and provide a drivable surface. As a reminder, we ask that no vehicles be parked on the streets during working hours from 7:00 am to 7:00 pm. This gives the contractor room to work more efficiently. Please see emailed public notice for further details.
Project Update 04 - September 16, 2022
During the week of September 19th, the contractor will begin pouring concrete curb & gutter in the project area.

Please see emailed public notice for further details.

Project Update 01 - May 27, 2022
The City of Fridley awarded the Street Rehabilitation Project No. ST2021-01 to North Valley Inc. of Nowthen, MN. The bids came in a little higher than staff were projecting during the preliminary design and after calculating the special assessments with contractor’s costs the special assessments are estimated to be 10% higher than the amount projected previously. This is due to the increase in oil prices that occurred between October of 2021 and now. Staff is currently reviewing the project to see where costs might be reduced.
The street contractor has provided a preliminary construction schedule starting at the beginning of August. A more formal project schedule will be shared in July. Once the project starts residents can anticipate a weekly update during construction.
More information can be found in the official mailed public notice. Please note this is the only mailed notice for this project. All residents are encouraged to sign up for email updates by contacting web-StreetProjects@fridleymn.gov. Email updates will go out weekly during construction and this page will be updated frequently as well.
