Sewer Project: Kittsondale Storm Tunnel Repairs (Phase 2)

The Kittsondale storm tunnel system serves a large area of Saint Paul. Saint Paul Sewer Division will be doing needed maintenance and repairs in portions of the tunnel system in the coming years to ensure the effective use and operations of the system.

Phase 2 of the Kittsondale Storm Tunnel Repairs Project is scheduled to begin November 2020 and completed Spring 2021. The project will use the Bayard storm staff located on Bayard Avenue between Canton Street and Bay Street.

As part of the process, prospective contract bidders will need to access the tunnel on September 14-17.  During that time, “No Parking” signs will be posted on both sides of Bayard Street from 7:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
