City’s PMP Completes Three Miles in 2010

In 2010, Golden Valley rehabilitated approximately three miles of local streets and utilities as part of its ongoing Pavement Management Program (PMP). The project focused on streets in the area just south of Hwy 55, north of Glenwood Ave, and west of the Perpich Center for the Arts High School.

Streets reconstructed in the 2010 PMP

Northwest Asphalt, the City’s contractor for the project, finished paving and placing sod in all 2010 construction areas this fall. Streets were reconstructed to City standards, including concrete curb and gutter. The project also addressed necessary repairs to the storm sewer, water mains, and sanitary sewer mains.

2011 and 2012 PMP

The City Council approved the 2011 and 2012 PMP projects at a public hearing Nov 16.

The 2011 PMP will include the Lawn Terrace area of Golden Valley, which is between Hwy 100 and Turner’s Crossroad and I-394 and Glenwood Ave.

The 2012 PMP will include Circle Down north of I-394 and east of Turner’s Crossroad, King Hill Rd and King Creek Rd south of Glenwood Ave, as well as Welcome Ave, Welcome Circle, and Phoenix St south of Golden Valley Rd and west of Hwy 100.

Both projects are in the preliminary design phase, which includes surveying, soil borings, and neighborhood participation. The City begins preliminary survey and design work and meets with affected property owners at least one year before a proposed project is presented to the City Council at a public hearing. The City sends public hearing notices to each resident along streets being considered for rehabilitation at least 10 days before the hearing.

The City will complete the plans for both projects and go out for bids for the 2011 PMP in January. The City will bid the 2012 PMP in January 2012.
