2023 Neighborhood Pavement Overlay Improvements, IP23-07

Background

Updated Dec 16, 2022

City Improvement Project 23-07 proposes to mill and overlay five subdivisions within the City of Ramsey: Alpine Meadows, Highlands at River Park 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th. The project totals 1.83 miles in length, all proposed areas are urban sections including concrete curb and gutter with varying street widths. A summary of the street segments included in the project may be seen here.

On November 7, 2022, the Ramsey City Council accepted a proposal for a topographic survey of the project area from Bolton and Menk. Staff has received the survey, which is used during project design.

On December 13, 2022, the Ramsey City Council ordered Staff to prepare plans and specifications for Improvement Project 23-07, 2023 Neighborhood Pavement Overlay Improvements.

Project Scope

This project will include a 1-inch mill of the existing bituminous pavement, and placement of 1.5-inches of new bituminous pavement in the Alpine Meadows subdivision, due to the existing pavement thickness. The Highlands at River Park subdivisions are proposed to receive a 2-inch mill of the existing bituminous pavement, and placement of 2-inches new bituminous pavement. Minor storm sewer structure repairs, typically re-grouting the catch basins, is proposed to occur. Spot concrete curb and gutter repairs will be made, and any severe pavement distresses indicative of structural issues will receive a full pavement patch. Pedestrian ramps within the city-owned right of way and crossing the proposed streets or otherwise impacted by the mill and overlay improvements, will be brought up to current ADA compliance. Improvements to municipal sanitary sewer and water within the project area are not proposed. Structures within the pavement will be adjusted to match in properly with the new bituminous pavement. In the Alpine Meadows subdivision, the new pavement will be approximately ½ inch higher than existing.

Funding for this improvement is proposed to come from the Pavement Management Fund ($470,000) and Storm Sewer Utility Fund ($47,000) for a total estimated project cost of $517,000, as identified in the 2023 to 2032 Capital Improvement Program.

Property owners will not be assessed for any of the costs for these improvements.
