Fillmore Avenue between Robert Street and East Lafayette Frontage Road will be resurfaced through a process called “mill and overlay” to create a smoother roadway surface for people driving and riding bikes. Crews grind off the top layer of roadway, then replace it with a new layer of bituminous pavement.
After new pavement is replaced, the road will be restriped with on-street bike lanes. These are consistent with the adopted 2015 Saint Paul Bicycle Plan. The bike lanes will improve safety and comfort for people riding bikes. To provide space for the bike lanes, on-street parking will be removed along the south side of Fillmore Avenue within the project limits.
A project notification letter was sent to property owners along Fillmore Avenue in mid April 2021. View letter below in Letters section.
