The 2012 Mill and Overlay project focused on the following streets: Highwood Avenue (from McKnight to New Century), Southlawn Drive (from Legacy Parkway to Beam Avenue), Maryland Avenue (from McKnight to Lakewood), Conway Avenue (from McKnight to Century), Linwood Avenue (from McKnight to Century), Roselawn Avenue (from Highway 61 to Rice Street), and Stillwater Avenue (from McKnight to Lakewood) (see attached drawing). These streets were listed in the 2012 – 2016 Maplewood Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) as a project for the 2012 and 2013 construction seasons. The city council initiated the project by ordering the preparation of a feasibility study at the council meeting on June 27, 2011.
The project consisted of approximately 5.7 miles of mill and overlays. The mill and overlays rehabilitated the deteriorating pavement surface and extended the life of the existing pavement section. It was necessary to rehabilitate these streets to improve serviceability, meet city standards, extend the life of the pavement section, and relieve the maintenance department of continual repairs. This project included the removal and replacement of the top 2 inches of the existing pavement surface, the removal and replacement of all bituminous curbing, the replacement of deteriorated concrete curbing and sidewalk, the upgrade of pedestrian curb ramps to ADA and PROWAG standards, the adjustment of existing utility castings, and the restoration of disturbed boulevard areas.
