2023 Falcon Heights Pavement Management Project

Overview

The City of Falcon Heights manages a comprehensive Pavement Management Program which includes repaving several miles of local streets every two years.  Falcon Woods and the Northeast Quadrant neighborhoods are proposed for improvements.  To see which streets are included in 2023, please see the proposed Project Map.

The majority of the proposed roadways will have the top layer of asphalt section removed and repaved.  Spot curb and gutter repairs will also be done as part of this project.   We expect very little impact to driveways on those streets as part of this project.

Garden Avenue is proposed to have more intensive work done, which would involve removal of all asphalt and re-construction of the roadway.  This roadway will also be evaluated for changes to the lane widths and for the possible addition of a pathway.  Frequently asked questions for the Garden Avenue work are available here.  Garden Avenue Design Options are available here.

A pathway is proposed to create a pedestrian connection for Ruggles Avenue.  

Neighborhood Meeting

The City hosted an Open House on April 5, 2022, to discuss the Ruggles Street pathway proposal and Garden Avenue. 

The exhibits and handouts are posted on the right for review along with an existing layout of Garden Avenue.  Please note the exhibits are in the preliminary design process, so they are not finalized, rather the City is seeking comments.  You may contact staff at the phone numbers and email addresses listed on the right to ask questions or submit your comments on the project. 

A public meeting on the other streets will be held at a later date this summer.
