Mill and overlay work is done on Saint Paul’s arterial (or main) streets. Crews will “mill,” or remove approximately the top two inches of the roadway and then “overlay,” or repave the street with new asphalt. The repaving portion is weather dependent, but the entire process typically takes two to four days. Road striping will be completed in the days following the repaving of the street.

What you need to do:

  • Please move your car off the street. We will post “No Parking” signs the day before the project begins. Cars that are not moved will be ticketed and towed.
  • The street will have temporary closures or lane restrictions during milling and repaving operations. We will try to maintain access to driveways, but there may be temporary access restrictions.
  • Please notify any tenants/renters or visitors about the project and no parking restrictions.

Project costs: All abutting property owners will be charged a fee of 50% of the mill and overlay project costs. The city pays the remaining 50% of the project. Property owners will receive a bill for the resurfacing project after the work has been completed.

The rate for the repaving project is $18.52/per front linear foot.

Estimated Project Timeline (weather dependent): September 25-27, 2019.
