The City of Falcon Heights manages a comprehensive Pavement Management Program which includes repaving several miles of local streets every two years. 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 extensive work done, which would involve removal of all asphalt and re-construction of the roadway. At the November 9, 2022 City Council meeting, the Council approved moving forward with design Option 4 and Option 7. Both of these options include a sidewalk on the north side of the roadway and a reduced street width.
Option 4 (Segment 1 - Garden Ave - West of Holton Street):
Option 7 (Segment 2 - Garden Ave – Holton to Hamline):
Frequently asked questions for the Garden Avenue work are available here. Previously considered Garden Avenue Design Options are available here.
A surfaced pathway connection on Ruggles Avenue between Pascal and Holton is still under consideration.
Previously, the City hosted a neighborhood meeting to discuss the project as a whole on October 5, 2022. The City also hosted two open houses, on April 5, 2022 and July 20, 2022, to discuss the Ruggles Street pathway proposal and Garden Avenue. The exhibits and handouts are posted on the right for review.
