Street Reconstruction Project
CONSTRUCTION UPDATE (Throughout the Oakwood neighborhoods) - 6/18/2018
Utility work is officially completed! Onto street construction! Thank you for your cooperation and patience this past week. Below is a summary of the work completed this week and a look into what work is anticipated to take place next week:
Work completed week (6/11/18 – 6/15/18)
- Subcutting and removal of excess material within the roadway
- Placement of aggregate base for the future roadway
Work to be completed next week (6/18/18 – 6/22/18)
- Construction of the new roadway will continue
- Concrete curb and gutter could be poured late next week
- Please note that vehicles cannot drive over freshly poured curb and gutter for 5-7 days while the concrete cures. Residents will be asked to park on the street outside their home over night.
A look into the future (Please note that this timeline is approximate and could change due to weather or contractor scheduling)
- Roadway construction is anticipated to take approximately 4 weeks. This includes building the base of the road, curb and gutter, driveway construction, and paving of the first layer of asphalt.
- After street construction, restoration efforts will take place for a couple weeks. This includes grading boulevards, hydro seeding boulevards, cleaning up the site, etc.
- The project is anticipated to be completed around mid-July.
- The final layer of asphalt will not be paved until next spring.
Again, thank you for your patience and cooperation during construction. Please note that the contractors schedule is weather dependent. Scheduling tends to change on short notice. Thank you for your flexibility. Feel free to call me (Luke) with any questions you may have: 612-597-9105.

Oakwood Drive, Robert Circle, and Oakwood Circle
Scope of Work
Sanitary Sewer, watermain and storm sewer will be replaced as part of this project. The contractor will begin this utility work on April 23rd. This process will take several weeks so please look for future updates on construction.
The contractor will begin removing the existing pavement along Oakwood Drive, Robert Circle, and Oakwood Circle on Monday, April 30th. The contractor will be reclaiming the existing pavement. This process includes grinding up the existing pavement and gravel base under the existing road, blending it together, then placing it back down. Please have all vehicles off of the street by 7 am on Monday, April 30th to allow the contractor to complete this process.
The Contractor will be setting up a temporary watermain along the project. The contractor will be coordinating a time with all homeowners to connect temporary watermain to your outside water spigot. The contractor will need to enter your house to turn off the water using the inside valve in order to disconnect your water service from the existing watermain. Your cooperation with the contractor is necessary to ensure this switch goes smoothly. Once the switch has been completed, turn on your outside water spigot and let water run to inspect for any leaks.
The temporary watermain will be in service until the new watermain is completely installed. A wye will be installed on your spigot so that you will still be able to use it for outside purposes while being hooked up to temporary water.
If you have any questions or concerns throughout construction, please call Luke Wheeler at 612-597-9105. Thank you for your patience and cooperation during construction.
