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 will pave the second lift of asphalt pavement from 109th Lane to Coon Rapids Boulevard on Monday, August 1st. Permanent watermain installations from 109th Lane to Direct River Drive will continue to take place next week. Ancillary concrete driveway and sidewalk work, as well as topsoil placement, will take place within the phase 2 area after the second lift of asphalt is placed.
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.
