The City of Ramsey has identified streets within the Juniper Woods 1st, 2nd, and 3rd subdivision for reconstruction in 2024. These subdivision streets are generally located south of Alpine Drive between Tonto Street and Ute Street, totaling close to three quarters of a mile.

Sanitary sewer, watermain and storm sewer all exist with the project area. Though City Staff isn’t aware of any issues currently; Staff is planning on to clean and video the pipes/structures. If problems are found, recommendations to repair either prior to street reconstruction or during will be done.

This reconstruction project is proposing to only perform spot concrete curb and gutter replacements. This is due to the lack of pavement section thickness, the typical full-depth reclamation process may be modified to provide a thicker section than existing. It has been found that the existing pavement section to be 2.5 inches bituminous over 4 inches of aggregate base. This does not meet the current City standard of 3.5 inches bituminous over 4-6 inches aggregate base. This will be addressed further during the final design.
