Road Construction Projects
Annual City Projects
In November 2021, the 2022 Roadway Rehabilitation Project was canceled. The project will be reevaluated and construction planned for 2023. Due to this change, the project originally scheduled for 2023 in the Salem Meadows and Erin Court neighborhoods has been moved to 2024.

Pavement Rejuvenator Projects
Each year, the city completes a pavement rejuvenator project in designated areas to extend pavement life and contain materials within the original asphalt pavement. The rejuvenator is an oil-based material that will be sprayed directly on the road surface, followed by the temporary application of a sand product.

The culvert under Edgewood Avenue west of Meadow Drive will be replaced in the summer of 2022. The existing retaining walls and culvert are in poor condition and in need of replacement.
The project will include removing the existing retaining walls and grading the north and south side of the road. The guardrails will also be removed as part of the project. The existing culvert will be removed and replaced by a new, longer culvert to eliminate the need for retaining walls. During construction, Edgewood Avenue will be closed to traffic.
Construction is anticipated to start July 2022 and be completed in approximately 6 weeks.
Most road closures associated with this project ended in October 2021. Temporary stop signs and traffic control devices are placed at the intersection of Hudson Road and Settlers Ridge Parkway until the permanent traffic signal can be installed. Full completion of this project is anticipated by spring 2022.
Due to an anticipated project in 2022, Hudson Road between Settlers Ridge Parkway and Manning Avenue will remain closed through July 2022.
A Lake Road transportation study was completed in 2016, which recommended converting portions of Lake Road from a four-lane roadway to a three-lane roadway to increase safety for vehicles and pedestrians. Work will begin in June and include pavement rehabilitation and restriping of the roadway from Woodlane Drive to Pioneer Drive.
Lake Road will be open to traffic throughout construction with temporary delays and closures expected. The intersection of Lake Road and Courtly Road will be closed for approximately three weeks for pavement rehabilitation and drainage improvements.
In addition, the Lake Road and Pioneer Drive intersection will be reconstructed as a single-lane roundabout. Crosswalk enhancements will be completed to improve pedestrian safety and construction will include accommodations for future trail connections. Traffic impacts will be identified as the project progresses to construction. The project is expected to be completed in August.

The Metro Gold Line is a planned 10-mile dedicated bus rapid transit line that will connect St. Paul, Maplewood, Landfall, Oakdale and Woodbury.

Construction is planned to continue through 2024 and the line is expected to be operational in 2025.

I-94 between Century Avenue and the St. Croix River will be resurfaced starting in July and continuing through 2024. Additional work includes constructing a new eastbound lane from I-494 to Woodbury Drive, improving drainage, replacing signage, upgrading lighting and installing a median barrier. Significant traffic impacts are expected with lane, ramp, interchange and road closures.
A long-term, singlelane eastbound closure is expected from Woodbury Drive to the St. Croix River bridge in 2022. A virtual public open house is planned for early May.
