Project Status Report – 2018 Crosslake Street and Trail Improvements

Pavement construction has been completed at the City Hall parking lot; striping of parking stalls and seeding is anticipated within the next week.  Road grading and concrete curb and gutter installation has been the focus this week on Manhattan Point Boulevard.  Pipe culverts and storm sewer pipe installations are planned to start on Manhattan Point Boulevard in phases tomorrow and Saturday.  The road will be reduced to one lane in these areas until the pipe can be backfilled; the contractor will have flaggers to direct traffic and minimize delays as much as possible.  Work scheduled for next week includes continuing with pipe installations and trail construction.  Temporary mailboxes have been placed in a few central areas to facilitate grading operations.  If your mailbox has been removed to allow grading equipment access, please check the temporary mailboxes for your address and mail delivery.  After road grading is completed, permanent locations for mailboxes can be determined and installed.  Paving of the first lift of bituminous pavement may begin as soon as next week for road segments west from Whitefish Avenue.  Thank you for your patience during the construction.

Project Status Report – 2018 Crosslake Street and Trail Improvements

Pavement reclaiming has been completed and Anderson Brothers Construction is currently working on grading for the roadway and trail on Manhattan Point.  The contractor may need to temporarily relocate mailboxes in some locations to complete the grading work; mail delivery will continue.  Culvert pipe replacements and storm sewer piping is planned for installation over the next few weeks.  There will be temporary traffic delays associated with this work as the pipes will cross MH Pt Blvd; however, the Contractor will keep one lane open around these excavations to keep traffic moving.  Road construction activity will conclude this Friday and over the Memorial Day Weekend, and will resume on Tuesday, May 29th.  Paving of the City Hall parking lot is currently planned for Thursday next week.  Utility companies are also working along the construction zone on Manhattan Point to relocate overhead power poles and guy wires where this is necessary.  TDS Telecom is installing new underground facilities from Camp Knudsen northward and then east along MH Pt Blvd to approximately Hilltop Drive.  Please check back for further updates as work progresses.

Project Status Report – 2018 Crosslake Street and Trail Improvements

Tree clearing and stump removal operations are nearly completed along Manhattan Point Boulevard and near City Hall.  There will be additional brushing and tree trimming to follow.  An updated project schedule has been provided by Anderson Brothers Construction; this schedule has been posted on the project web page.  With snow and frost quickly disappearing, the schedule has tentatively been moved up one week.  Property owners that own private underground utilities located in the road right-of-way are encouraged to stop by City Hall to pick up marking flags and mark the location of your underground facilities.  This will aid in minimizing damage to your facilities during the road construction.  Utility crews will be relocating underground gas and communications cable in the next few weeks.  Survey crews will be placing construction stakes in the next week to assist utility companies and the road contractor.  Please help us protect these stakes; they will be removed when construction has been completed.  As construction work begins to increase, please plan ahead for extra time to get to your destination, and maintain safe speeds through the construction zone.
