Mill and Overlays - 2012
City Project 11-15
The 2012 Mill and Overlays project focuses 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 are listed in the approved 2012 – 2016 Maplewood Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) as a proposed 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 consists of approximately 5.7 miles of mill and overlays. The mill and overlays will rehabilitate the deteriorating pavement surface and extend the life of the existing pavement section. It is 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 includes 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 upgrading of pedestrian curb ramps to ADA and PROWAG standards, the adjustment of existing utility castings, and the restoration of disturbed boulevard areas.

The presentations are available for viewing.
September 19th Meeting
(Conway, Highwood, Linwood, Maryland, and Stillwater)
September 20th Meeting
(Roselawn and Southlawn)
The public hearing was held on Monday, November 14, 2011 at 7 pm. The Council voted to order the project at the end of the Public Hearing.
The assessment hearing was held on Monday, April 9, 2012. At the close of this hearing the Council approved the assessments and awarded a construction contract to Hardrives, Inc.
The mill and overlay of Highwood Avenue, Linwood Avenue, Conway Avenue, Stillwater Avenue, Maryland Avenue, and Roselawn Avenue has been completed. Minor punch-list items will be corrected in the spring of 2013.
The construction of the Met Transit Park and Ride near the corner of Beam Avenue and Southlawn Drive is behind schedule. The construction of this facility requires access from Southlawn Drive by heavy construction equipment. In order to prevent damage to the new wear course planned for this road, the milling and overlaying of Southlawn Drive has been delayed until the summer of 2013. It is currently anticipated that the mill and overlay of Southlawn Drive will begin in the middle of July, 2013.
