Oak Lake Ave & 10th Ave N 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 resurfacing project is located north of downtown on Oak Lake Ave from Olson Memorial Highway north to 10th Ave N, and then on 10th Ave N from Oak Lake Ave to Washington Ave N.  These streets were originally paved between 1959 and 1979 which makes them between 34 to 54 years old.

Construction Start Date:
This project is complete.  Crack sealing will take place in 2014.

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.
