McMenemy Street Improvements

About the Project:

The McMenemy Street Improvement project is a full reconstruction project proposed to be constructed in 2022. The project includes many improvements to McMememy Street including a full removal of the existing street and underlying base. The new roadway will consist of two new pavement layers, an aggregate base layer, and a free-draining sub-base layer, along with the installation of concrete curb and gutter. Utility improvements include the removal and replacement of the cast iron water main system, the expansion of the storm sewer system, and repairs to the existing sanitary sewer system. An 8-foot wide multi-use porous asphalt trail is proposed along the east-side of McMenemy street to connect the area to the larger trail systems along County Road B to the north and Wheelock Parkway to the south. 

Project Status:

The Maplewood City Council accepted the feasibility report at the February 14, 2022 meeting. The Public Hearing for this project was held on February 28, 2022 at which the Council ordered the improvements. The project is currently out for bids from contractors with an award of contract scheduled to go to Council in mid-May. If approved, this project would be constructed between late May and November of 2022.

Xcel Energy is currently in the project area upgrading the natural gas pipelines to their current standard material. This replacement is a standalone project being managed by Xcel Energy. Please contact Xcel Energy with any questions related to this work.
