2021 Infrastructure Improvement Project

At the February 22 Council meeting, the City of New Hope awarded the contract for this project to T.A. Schifsky and Sons to complete street improvements in 2021. A map of the affected streets is attached at the link below or can be viewed in the image finder below. 

 

The project map identifies streets in orange as proposed “reclaim and overlay” roadways. This type of road improvement involves removing the entire pavement section of the roadway down to the gravel base. Roadways will remain gravel, typically for two to three weeks, while the contractor performs subgrade repairs on the road base. Roadways will then be re-paved with a full new layer of pavement.

The project map identifies streets in green as proposed "mill and overlay" roadways. This type of road improvement involves removing the top layer of pavement. Any subsurface repairs will then occur on the remaining road pavement. Three weeks after the initial pavement removal, roadways will be re-paved with a full new layer of pavement.

In addition to pavement rehabilitation, spot repairs will be made to existing water and sewer utilities where needed. See the project map for more information. Water utility will be replaced along Oregon avenue between 38th and 39th. Storm sewer will be added to improve drainage at the intersection of 38th and Maryland. 

Street work began the week of 4/19. Utility work will begin the week of 5/3.
