McMenemy Street Improvements

About the Project:

The McMenemy Street Improvement project is a full reconstruction project slated 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:

A construction contract has been awarded to T.A. Schifsky and Sons, Inc. for this project. The overall project will run from July-November of 2022.

Concrete curb and gutter was installed on McMenemy between Larpenteur and Summer Place early the week of September 26th. The first layer of pavement was installed in this area Friday the 30th. Driveway aprons will be completed in this area on Monday October 3rd.

Road building activities are underway on McMenemy between Summer Place and Roselawn Avenue and should be completed around October 5th. This road building activity will continue north as the water main work is completed. The concrete contractor will be back onsite around October 12th to install curbing in the areas that have had the road base installed.

Water main installations continue north of Roselawn Avenue. This work will continue up to County Road B over the upcoming weeks.

The overall project schedule is looking decent at this point. Water main material shortages slid the schedule back and the contractor is doing their best to keep up. A recent cement shortage has also impacted some projects in the region. The City and contractor are paying close attention to this issue and will provide an update if the overall schedule may be impacted. The Contractor has indicated that sod installations may need to occur in the spring of 2023, but it isn't definite at this time. We will continue to provide updates as the project continues.
