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.

The roadwork is complete and the road is open.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
PAVING OF VICTORIA STREET AND AMBLE ROAD HAS BEEN RESCHEDULED FOR FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 29TH, AND SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 30TH DUE TO THE WEATHER.
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 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.

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.
