2022-2023 Street Project

Public Works

**CONCRETE CONSTRUCTION MATERIAL SHORTAGE**
Due to unforeseen circumstances, the concrete work of curbing, gutter, and driveway aprons has been rescheduled because of a material shortage. A component included in the mixture of concrete is in short supply; therefore, contractors are restricted to the amount of concrete available.

What does this mean for the Street Project?
Weekly, beginning September 26, 2022, approximately 2000 feet of curb and gutter will be able to be installed until this work is completed; affected properties will receive notices.
Driveway aprons will be installed after curb and gutter are completed, and this will continue until the weather or supply prohibits it. Until concrete driveway aprons can be installed, a temporary gravel patch will be placed between the existing driveway and the concrete gutter. Should you have any questions regarding this matter, please contact the Project Hotline at 763-717-4055 to speak with the on-site project inspector.  For continued project updates, please visit www.moundsviewmn.org.

Thank you for your understanding and patience as we navigate this new development.
