Lyn Park 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.
The Lyn Park Residential Project consists of three previous residential projects; Lyn Park 2 originally paved in 1978, Lyn Park 3, and Franklin Hall N, originally paved in 1976.

Project Limits: 
The project is located in north Minneapolis and is bounded on the north by West Broadway, on the east by I-94, on the south by Plymouth Ave and on the west by Bryant Ave S.

Construction Start Date:
Mill and overlay work begins the week of June 30th.  Select curb and gutter replacement will take place prior to the mill and overlay.

Duration of Construction:
Construction will take about 3-4 weeks for completion, barring  unforeseen circumstances.

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.
