Due to heavy rains this week, the final paving of Mississippi Boulevard from Coon Rapids Boulevard to 111th Avenue is scheduled for Monday, August 15. Final striping in this area is scheduled for Wednesday, August 17. Mississippi Boulevard is anticipated to be back open to traffic by Thursday, August 18.
Permanent watermain installations from 109th Lane to Direct River Drive will continue to take place throughout next week.
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.
