This project was the result of a neighborhood petition received by the city in September 2012, requesting the permanent closure of Wheeler Street at County Road D. At the October 10, 2016 Council meeting the City Council passed a resolution ordering the project which will close Wheeler Street at County Road D to vehicular traffic. A short sidewalk will be installed to maintain no motorized access.
The Developer (Senior Housing Partners) of Presbyterian Homes, on the north side of County Road D was required by Arden Hills to reconstruct County Road D at their expense. As part of the reconstruction of the road they will incorporate the road closure of Wheeler Street. Work on reconstructing County Road D began on October 10. The project is estimated to be completed on November 4. The reconstructed road will have new curb and gutter, new storm sewer and a sidewalk installed on the north side of the road.

Closure will be held in October of 2017. A notice will be sent to
