West Avenue Reconstruction - Meeting Minutes/Notes

West Avenue ReconstructionWest Avenue, from 7th Street to Maple Street, is the 2014 street reconstruction project scheduled in the Capital Improvement Plan (CIP). This segment of West Avenue is a State Aid route and will be constructed with federal aid, state aid, & local funding. The city engineering department has completed designing the project and has received the MnDOT approval of the plans for the project. This proposed project is scheduled to open bids on May 12, 2014.  This project is to be constructed under a contract in 2014.



The West Avenue Reconstruction Project’s turf establishment and the final pavement striping were completed on June 10, 2015.  The vegetation’s growth will be monitored until it reaches 70% growth, at which time, the contract will be complete and the contractor will be paid in full.  The contractor will not be watering the turf boulevards, so if drier weather conditions occur during the upcoming months, it will be the property owner’s responsibility to water these boulevard areas fronting their properties throughout the remainder of the growing season. 

The City of Red Wing’s staff would like to thank the residents along this project for their cooperation, support, and patience throughout this reconstruction project.



The West Avenue Reconstruction Project was open for safe vehicle and pedestrian traffic on November 8, 2014.  The project's turf establishment and the final pavement striping will be completed before June 1, 2015.

Thank you to everyone for your patience during this project.
