19-07: 2019 - 2020 Street Reconstructions
Project Update - April 1, 2020
Tournament Players Parkway construction was completed in 2019. Assessments for Tournament Players Parkway were levied in the fall of 2019.
The City of Blaine has hired Sambatek, Inc. as the consultant engineer to complete the necessary surveying and design work to create plans and specifications for the remainder of the streets on this project. The plans and specifications are currently being completed and will be finished in the spring of 2020. Once plans and specifications are completed, they will go before the City Council for consideration of approval and authorization for bidding. Construction of the project is planned for the summer of 2020 but due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, this may be subject to change. Residents along the project streets will receive notification prior to the start of construction.

Work will generally consist of grinding up the existing bituminous pavement into gravel, installation of additional storm sewer in select locations, minor watermain valve/hydrant repairs, spot or full replacement of existing curb and gutter, spot sidewalk repair and pedestrian ramp improvements (where present) and paving a new bituminous road surface.
All of the streets will remain the same width and configuration as the currently are. The general construction process is as follows:
- The existing pavement surface will be ground up into gravel and existing curb and gutter (if present) will be removed. Spot sections of damaged concrete curb and gutter will be removed (if present).
- Underground utility work will be constructed where planned.
- The gavel road base will be graded and shaped and new concrete curb and gutter will be installed along the entire road (105th Avenue) or where removed for spot replacement (115th Avenue, Quincy Street, Taylor Street, Van Buren Court).
- After the concrete curb and gutter has cured, the first layer (base course) of the new bituminous street surface will be paved.
- The second layer (wear course) of the bituminous pavement will be paved.
- Boulevards will be restored and sodded.
It is the goal of the project to keep access available at all times for those residents and businesses that take direct access off of the project streets but the road surface will be gravel during most of the project. During some of the underground storm sewer work, short term closures of a block long portion of the street during the day may be needed. There may be short term delays for access to or from your driveway or on the road where you may have to wait for the construction equipment to pass by. During curb and gutter installation and driveway apron replacement, there will be a period of days where residents will not be able to access their driveways and all parking must be done on street. Residents will receive notification prior to any driveway closures. The project is anticipated to take approximately four months to complete.
