Linden Hills Residential Resurfacing

Project Type:
This is a paving resurfacing project. Resurfacing projects use a mill and overlay process.  This process will consist of removing a portion of the existing asphalt pavement surface and placing a new surface over the entire street. The purpose of the resurfacing program is to extend the life of a roadway by approximately 10 years.  Without this program, streets in the in the program would not see surface improvements for many years.

Project Limits:
The Linden Hills neighborhood contains several streets that will be resurfaced in 2013.  The Linden Hills area was originally paved 45 years ago in 1968.
- Glendale Terrace from France Ave to Drew Ave S.
- Drew Ave S from 38th St W to 39th St W, 40th St W to 41st St W and 43rd St W to 44th St W
- Chowen Ave S from 40th St W to 41st St W
- 38th St W from Drew Ave S to Upton Ave S
- Upton Ave S from Lake Calhoun Pkwy to 38th St W
- 40th St W from Drew Ave S To Chowen Ave S
- 41st St W from Ewing Ave S to Chowen Ave S

Construction Start Date:
Construction is tentatively scheduled to begin the week of May 20th on 42nd St W and Upton Ave, and on 43rd St W.

Traffic Impact:
The work will be performed during full or partial road closures.  Please note that street parking will be impacted and short term intermittent access restrictions may occur.  When construction work will be done on a particular street in the project area, the street will be posted NO PARKING prior to work on that particular street.

Pre-payment Information:
Prepayment is made to the Minneapolis Finance Department.  Pay statements are sent only by request and the taxpayer is solely responsible for obtaining said statement.  Full prepayments may be accepted only through December 31st, 2013 without interest.  Partial prepayments are not provided for.  No further notice of prepayment will be published.  Persons who wish to prepay the entire assessment lump sum without interest charges may do so by contacting the Minneapolis City Engineer's Special Assessment Office, 309 2nd Ave S, Room 209, Minneapolis, MN 55401-2268, or telephone (612)673-2401.
