Shoreview’s 2017 Road Rehabilitation Project includes the reconstruction of the roads in the Victoria and Amble neighborhoods.

The City of Shoreview will be replacing the bituminous surface of the streets shown on the attached map. The work is part of the City’s pavement maintenance program and there will be no assessments associated with this project.

The project will consist of grinding up the existing bituminous surface, modifying the sub-base material and placing a new bituminous surface.  Miscellaneous storm sewer and curb replacement will also be done at various locations in the project area. Any grass areas that are disturbed during the storm sewer or curb replacement will be repaired before the road is paved. 

The streets will be open to local traffic during the project, but there will be minor traffic delays and you may be delayed momentarily if the contractor is working directly in front of your driveway.

Update 11-21-17

The roadwork is complete and the road is open.

Update 11-13-17

The final wear course has been paved on both Victoria Street and Amble Road. The contractor will be on site sawing and sealing joints on both roads this Tuesday and Wednesday. Victoria Street will be striped and open for thru-traffic once the saw and seal work is completed. Please continue to drive cautiously thru the construction site for everyone's safety.

Update 11-02-17

Amble Road is scheduled to be paved on Monday, November 6th. Victoria Street is scheduled to be paved on Tuesday, November 7th. Paving will start in the morning at approximately 8 AM. You can drive on the new pavement as soon as the contractor finishes with rolling and compacting it.

Update 10-30-17

PAVING RESCHEDULED: 

Paving on Victoria Street and Amble Road has been postponed for the next few days due to the weather. The lower temperatures will not allow us to attain the best possible pavement for our roads for the long term. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. We will let you know as soon as we have the paving dates set. Please continue to check the project website for updates.

 

Update 10-23-17

The final layer of asphalt on Victoria Street is scheduled for Monday, October 30th, while Amble Road is to be paved on Tuesday, October 31st, with weather permitting. The paving operation will begin at 7 AM. 

You will be momentarily delayed if the contractor is paving in front of your driveway or at the intersection, but once the rollers have made their final passes you can drive on the new pavement. If you want to avoid any delays, it is recommended that you park any vehicle you will need during the day on an adjacent road with more than one access point onto Victoria Street or County Road F.

Also, note that a tack coat will be applied to the road to help bind the two layers of asphalt. If the road looks shiny and/or wet, you may get this material on your car if you drive too fast. Please continue to use caution driving through the active construction site. Thank you for your continued cooperation during this project.

 

Update 10-20-17

The reconstruction of the retaining wall by the apple orchard is completed. The contractor has moved on to raising gate valves and manholes on Victoria Street and Amble Road in preparation for paving. This work is scheduled to be completed next week. The dates for the final layer of pavement has not been set, but we're aiming to get it in later next week or early the following week.

Update 10-13-17

Along with Victoria Street and Amble Road, this project also involves reconstructing the parking lots at Bobby Theisen Park, Bucher Park, and Shamrock Park. The contractor has completed replacing curb and gutter at the parking lots along with the removal of the existing pavement. Grading and sodding at the parking lots are scheduled for next week. On Victoria Street, the contractor is currently working to rebuild the retaining wall by Victoria Valley Orchard. The retaining wall work will take a few days and be completed early next week. Once work at the retaining wall is completed, the contractor will be raising the manholes and gate valves in the street in preparation for the final lift of pavement. The final pavement is currently scheduled for the last week of October- specific dates will be provided in the near future.

Update 09-29-17

The contractor is paving the first layer of asphalt today on Victoria Street. On Saturday, September 30th, they will pave Amble Road starting at 8 AM. You may be momentarily delayed for up to an hour if the contractor is paving in front of your driveway or at the intersections. Next week the contractor will start working on the retaining wall on Victoria Street and raise the street manholes and gate valves if weather permits.

Update 09-26-17

PAVING OF VICTORIA STREET AND AMBLE ROAD HAS BEEN RESCHEDULED FOR FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 29TH, AND SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 30TH DUE TO THE WEATHER.

Update 09-22-17

The contractor has finished grading and injecting the emulsified asphalt oil on Victoria Street and Amble Road. The emulsified asphalt will improve the strength of the road base and increase resistance to cracking and rutting. Today the contractor has begun patching up the trails. The first layer of asphalt is still scheduled for next Monday, September 25th, and Tuesday, September 26th. On Monday, the contractor will start paving on one side of Victoria Street beginning from Lexington Avenue toward County Road F. You can drive on the asphalt after it has been rolled. A tack coat will also be applied to the road to help bind the two layers of asphalt. If the road looks shiny and/or wet, you may get this material on your car if you drive too fast.
Please be aware that you may be temporarily delayed for up to an hour when the contractor is working in front of your driveway or at the intersections. For everyone's safety, please continue to be cautious and alert when driving on the project site. Thank you for your continued patience and cooperation.

 

Update 09-13-17

The contractor has completed the replacement of concrete curb and gutter along Victoria Street and Amble Road. New pedestrian ramps with truncated domes along Victoria Street have also been finished. These new pedestrian ramps will be more accessible for all users. The contractor is currently grading the road and preparing it for stabilization with emulsified asphalt oil injections, which will harden the road and eliminate the dust. Please take your time and drive slowly in and out of your driveway as the road will be about 3 inches lower in front of your driveway curb for the final layers of asphalt. The emulsification of the road is scheduled for next Tuesday, September  19th, and Wednesday, September 20th.

Victoria Street is still closed to thru-traffic. Please continue to use alternative routes. Please note that if you are trying to get to or from your house, you may be momentarily delayed for a short period of time if the contractor is working in front of your driveway, intersection, or on one side of the road. Please be patient and do not try driving around or next to the street crews and their equipment. The street workers will move out of the way as soon as they finish at that location. Your safety and the safety of the street crews are of the greatest concern on this project.

 

Update 09-01-17

Victoria Street is still closed to all thru traffic. Please use alternative routes. If you are a local resident driving on Victoria Street, please drive slowly, be alert, and continue to use caution as you drive through the construction areas. The safety of all drivers and workers is of the greatest concern.

The contractor is pouring concrete for new curb and pedestrian ramps this week and into early next week. Please do not drive on the new concrete for the next seven days as it will need that time to strengthen to be able to carry the full weight of a vehicle. If the new concrete curb is in front of your driveway, please park on an adjacent road off the project site. The contractor is also reconstructing all existing catch basins to protect them from water infiltration, which can cause major deterioration.
The roads under construction continue to be periodically watered to keep the dust down. They will be watered again today ahead of the weekend. Thank you for your patience and cooperation during construction.

 

Update 08-25-17

The contractor has completed the reclamation of the existing pavement and is now in the process of removing curb. Some residents may be delayed if the contractor is removing curb in front of your driveway. If weather permits, the new concrete curb is scheduled to be installed on Wednesday, August 30th. If the contractor is replacing curb in front of your driveway, please have all the vehicles you will need for the next seven days out of your driveway by 7:00 am on Wednesday, August 30th. Please do not drive over the new curb for seven days to allow the concrete to strengthen; you may park in the street during this time. Please note that Victoria Street is off-limits to street parking.

Victoria Street is still closed to thru-traffic. For your safety and the safety of the workers, please avoid the active construction areas and take alternative routes if possible. If you are trying to get to or from your home thru an active construction area, please slow down and drive cautiously. Thank you for your cooperation.

Update 08-18-17

The contractor has completed saw-cutting curbs for removal and is finishing up prepping manholes and gate valves on Victoria Street and Amble Road for the road reclamation scheduled for next Wednesday, August 23rd. Please do not park your vehicle on Amble Road and Amble Court from 7:00 AM to 7:00 PM beginning on August 23rd to August 25th.

Victoria Street will be closed for the next few weeks and is only open to local residents adjacent to the project area.  The City understands the inconvenience caused by this project but asks that you take alternate routes if at all possible to avoid the active construction sites. If you have no other alternative routes to get to and from your home, please slow down as you drive through the construction areas. It is important to keep all workers and drivers safe during this project.

Update 08-15-17

Although schedules may change depending on weather and other factors, the work expected to start the week of August 14th will involve lowering of the street manholes and gate valves as well as saw cutting of the curbs. The road work is expected to start the week of August 21st. The contractor will grind up the asphalt and prepare the aggregate surface for the entire area before the new bituminous surface is placed. It is expected that the work should take approximately 5-weeks to complete.

Project Map

The watermain has been installed on Lilac and the contractor has begun connecting the houses to the new watermain. All the houses should be hooked up by Tuesday, August 23. The contractor will then begin installing the storm sewer system and hopefully finish by the end of the week. The road grading will begin very shortly after that, then we can schedule curb. If the weather cooperates, curb should be installed the week of Labor Day.
