Street ProjectThe city is conducting mill and overlay pavement maintenance work on 6.25 miles of city street in southern Crystal in 2020. The project will remove approximately 1.5 inches of the existing street surface and replace it with new asphalt.

As part of this project, damaged, deteriorated, settled and severely cracked sections of curb and gutter will be replaced, including some pedestrian sidewalk curb ramps. Repairs will also be made to deteriorating manhole and storm sewer structures, and some minor drainage improvements will be made in specific locations.

CenterPoint Energy will replace gas mains on selective streets, gas service lines to homes and some gas meters in advance of, or during, the city street project. For information on the CenterPoint Energy project, click here.

The project is anticipated to last three to four months, with individual streets taking around one month to complete. There will be no special assessments to properties in the project area.

Recon MapIn addition to street maintenance, the city will reconstruct the utilities (primarily water and sanitary sewer) on two streets during the 2020 construction season: Kentucky Ave. from Medicine Lake Rd. (27th Av.) to 30th Ave.; and Jersey Ave. from 30th Ave. to 32nd Ave.

Project Newsletter #1 (May 20)

The project is in the early design phase and includes improvements to the following infrastructure:

• Replacement of water main pipes, valves, hydrants and water services between the water main and the curb stop valve located at the edge of the right-of-way.

• Replacement of sanitary sewer mains, manholes, and sewer services between the sewer main and the transition point approximately five (5) feet behind the curb line.

• Replacement of storm sewer as necessary to accommodate replacement of water and sanitary sewer.

• Reconstruction of the street with bituminous pavement and curb.

As part of the city’s project, private property owners can have their sanitary sewer service pipe repaired between the curb line and home through an OPTIONAL program paid entirely by the property owner. Contact the city if you are interested in receiving additional information regarding the sewer service program.

Similar to the maintenance projects, there will be no special assessments to these project area properties. For questions or concerns, contact the engineering project manager at 763-531-1161 or
