Ford Parkway Construction 2017
Work to begin on Ford Parkway area infrastructure improvements
Construction will take place between March and October of 2017
Ramsey County and the City of Saint Paul will begin work this spring on five construction projects in the Highland Park neighborhood to improve the Ford Parkway area beginning in spring 2017. These projects will last through the fall of 2017.
The infrastructure improvements will result in better functioning sewer lines; new, smooth pavement; and new, accessible ramps for pedestrians at some intersections.
Ford Parkway will remain open to local traffic during construction. Short-term lane closures and detours will take place throughout the process. Street parking may be limited. Metro Transit customers may experience temporary bus stop closures.
These projects will create traffic delays on Ford Parkway and nearby streets.
A high priority for this project is pedestrian safety – specifically, students walking and biking to school, pedestrians crossing at intersections and construction workers on the job sites. Patience and extra attention to safety are appreciated throughout the community improvements.
