The city's annual street maintenance program includes several projects aimed at extending the life of city streets and pavement.

Street Reconstruction

2018 PROPOSED PROJECT AREA:

  • Shakopee Avenue from Market Street to Marschall Road
  • Dakota Street from 10th Avenue to Shakopee Avenue
  • Minnesota Street from 10th Avenue to Shakopee Avenue 

Overlays

  • Mills, paves and sealcoats selected city streets with new bituminous overlays.
  • Designed to preserve and protect the pavement, with a goal of reaching a 50-year life expectancy before a street requires complete reconstruction.
  • Work typically begins in early June and completed by the end of August.

Pavement Reclamation

  • Grinds up the existing bituminous pavement and mixes with the existing base before repaving the road.
  • Used mainly for roadways without curbs and nearly as successful as a full reconstruction at a third of the cost.
  • Work begins in early June and completed by the end of August.
