Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work with our staff, contractors, and suppliers to deliver proposed 2020 construction projects during the COVID-19 pandemic. Saint Paul Public Works continues to follow all federal and state health and safety guidelines to protect our staff, partners, and community.
- Projects are anticipated to move forward
- Community meetings and input for public hearings will be held online or by phone rather than in-person
- Construction work will continue to be evaluated and may require adjustments
- Updates will be posted as they become available
What is Planned?
- Saint Paul Public Works, in coordination with Saint Paul Department of Parks and Recreation and Ramsey County, is constructing an off-street walking and biking trail along Johnson Parkway
- The trail is being constructed along the eastern boulevard of Johnson Parkway between Burns Avenue and Phalen Boulevard
- The project will improve the safety and comfort of walking and biking in the area
- It will also complete a key segment of the Saint Paul Grand Round, a 27-mile scenic parkway that connects parks and neighborhoods across Saint Paul
The project encourages residents to focus on snow removal to prevent ice build-up in lieu of extreme salt usage as excess use of salt on new concrete will compromise its longevity.
- Complete traffic signals at 3rd Street
- Complete trail lights
In the spring:
- Complete traffic signals at 7th Street
- Install sod from Burns Avenue to 3rd Street
- Install retaining wall railings
- Install trail wayfinding signs
- Install remaining trees
- Complete sidewalk at English Street and 3rd Street and at Wakefield Avenue and Johnson Parkway
- Install final pavement striping of roadway and trail
There will be no further updates until remaining work resumes in the the spring
