Wheelock Parkway from Edgerton Street to Arcade Street

2022 - 2023


    Construction is Underway

    • Wheelock Parkway is closed to thru traffic. 
    • Please follow traffic control and No Parking signs

    New Sidewalks: No Salt

    Please refrain from using salt to remove ice on new concrete installed this year.  Salt will harm newly installed concrete and increase freeze/thaw cycles which can do further damage.

    We appreciate your assistance in helping maintain the new sidewalks.

    Water Main Replacement

    Saint Paul Regional Water Services (SPRWS) will replace all lead water services from the water main to the property line (public right of way portion) as part of this project. If you have a lead water service from the property line to the water meter at your property (private portion), you can sign-up for SPRWS’ Lead Free Program to have this portion replaced at no cost. For additional information and to sign up for the Lead Free Program, visit or call SPRWS’ Lead Free team at 651-266-6280.

    As part of the road reconstruction project, SPRWS will be replacing the water main on Wheelock Parkway.

    To continue to ensure the reliability of our system, SPRWS will be replacing the existing 8" cast iron water main with 8" ductile iron pipe.  The scope of the main replacement work is as follows:

    • Replace approximately 1,200 feet of 8" cast iron water main with 8" ductile iron
    • Replace necessary valves and hydrants within the project area
