Streets within the Ford Brooks Estates 3rd, Rodeo Hills Estates, Valley View Acres and Section 01 Unplatted 01 north of CR 27 subdivisions have been selected for reconstruction in 2024. Within the two miles that will be reconstructed normal traffic flow is considered to occur.
Concrete curb and gutter will replace the bituminous curing as needed to help with possible drainage issues. This will be furthered explored and updated as necessary during the project design process.
The proposed timeline from Hakanson Anderson, who has submitted the engineering design for this project, goes as followed.

On November 14, 2023; the Ramsey City Council awarded a proposal from Haugo Geotechnical Services to complete a geotechnical report for the 2024 NE Ramsey Street Reconstruction project.
The geotechnical report will require soil borings, all of which will be taken in the streets. Residents can expect to see a soil boring truck and crew members. The streets will remain open to traffic during the soil borings. A firm schedule of when this work will be performed is not known, but you should expect it to occur within the next several weeks.
Part of the survey includes surveying utilities, both municipal and private. Hakanson Anderson will be calling in a Gopher One State locate call for utilities in the area. Residents will likely see paint and flag markings within the project area,
This work being done will assist with design for the future reconstruction of the 2024 NE Ramsey Street Reconstruction. These streets are proposed to be reconstructed in 2024. This work is preliminary, City Council has not approved plans and specifications yet.

On August 22, 2023; the Ramsey City Council awarded a proposal from Hakanson Anderson to prepare plans and specifications for the 2024 NE Ramsey Street Reconstructions. Plans include the Ford Brook Estates 3rd, Rodeo Hills Estates & Valley View Acres, and Section 01 Unplatted (North of CR 27) subdivisions. Plan preparation and design includes completing a topographic survey of the project area.
The topographic survey will be taken across the entire City-owned right of way. This will include survey of the street, curb and gutter, any light poles, signs, trees, landscaping, and driveways up to the right of way. You can expect to see a crew of 2-3 surveyors, and a pick-up truck. The work is scheduled to occur in October of 2023.
Part of the topographic survey includes surveying existing utilities, both municipal and private, such as cable, gas, and electric lines. Hakanson Anderson will call Gopher One State to locate all utilities in the area, so you will likely see paint and flag markings within the project area.
