Commitment to Connectivity

Commitment to Connectivity, The City of Roseville continues to build more pathways.

The City of Roseville continues to build more pathways so pedestrians and bicyclists can safely navigate our city!

"Roseville was largely built in the 1950s and 1960s before sidewalks were a priority in many suburban communities. The city created a pathway master plan and is slowly building those connections,” said Public Works Director Jesse Freihammer. “We have a limited budget, so each year we pursue outside funding and partnerships with others.”

Jesse FreihammerFunding for new paths comes from federal Community Development Block Grants, Roseville Municipal State Aid Funds, and Ramsey County State Aid Funds.

Retrofitting our city with paths can be challenging, Freihammer said. There isn’t always a lot of space and roadsides are not always graded for paths, which sometimes requires the construction of retaining walls.

“Once the new paths are completed, most residents are happy that we’re making those connections.” – Jesse Freihammer, Public Works Director

A map showing 3 locations where sidewalks/paths will be constructed.

  1. This fall, crews will build a new path on Cleveland Avenue from Iona Lane north to the Colder Product site. The path fills a gap and will connect to a transit stop to increase walkability to jobs in that area. Ramsey County is funding $115,000 of the estimated $185,000 cost.
  2. Additionally, crews will complete construction of an eight-foot-wide path on the east side of Lexington Avenue near Roseville Area High School. The new path will close a gap between Highway 36 and County Road B2 improving safety for teens and staff traveling to and from school. Ramsey County has agreed to fund nearly $170,000 of the $270,000 project. City crews will remove snow from the new path in the winter months.
  3. Another new path will connect Larpenteur Avenue with one of Roseville’s newest greenspaces: Unity Park. Completed in 2019, Unity Park is a 0.70 acre park located on Marion Street that features walking paths, a playground, and a one-of-a-kind hill slide in the center of the park. The pathway is an extension of the Marion Street Pathway Phase 1, built in 2021, which connected Marion Street to Lake McCarrons County Park. Federal Community Development Block Grant provides funding for this pathway’s $240,000 estimated cost.
