The City of Roseville manages a comprehensive Pavement Management Program (PMP) which includes repaving several miles of local streets annually. In 1986, Roseville began a program to reconstruct substandard residential streets. The PMP upgrades streets by neighborhood based on street condition. The 2024 Proposed PMP Project Map shows streets scheduled to be repaved and have utility work done this summer.
The majority of the roadways will have the top 1.5-2 inches of pavement removed and repaved (mill and overlay). In addition to the street resurfacing work, some curb and gutter will be replaced. Minor utility repairs in the area will be performed with this project.
One of the streets identified for rehabilitation is Roselawn Avenue. This street is at the border of Roseville and Falcon Heights, and has been anticipated for rehabilitation by both cities in their Capital Improvement Plans. Roseville and Falcon Heights will be jointly constructing a pavement mill and overlay on Roselawn Avenue to include minor utility work, and spot curb and gutter repairs.
This project has the following funding sources from the State, City and property owners along the streets being considered for improvements:
Storm utility funds for repairs needed to the existing utility system;
Municipal State Aid (MSA) funding through the State of Minnesota’s gas tax;
Street infrastructure funds; and
Falcon Heights Special Benefit Assessments levied in accordance with the City’s assessment policy.
Falcon Heights parcels: The estimated assessment roll is available at the Engineering Department. Estimated assessment amounts will be individually mailed to property owners prior to the public Improvement Hearing scheduled for January 10, 2024. Falcon Heights’ Assessment Policy calls for assessing 40% of the cost of street improvements based on the front footage of adjacent properties. Residential lots will only be assessed for the long side of their property.
Roseville parcels: There will be NO assessments for this work.
