Project Type:
This is a paving resurfacing project. Resurfacing projects use a mill and overlay process.  This process will consist of removing a portion of the existing asphalt pavement surface and placing a new surface over the entire street. The purpose of the resurfacing program is to extend the life of a roadway by approximately 10 years.  Without this program, streets in the in the program would not see surface improvements for many years.

Project Limits:
The 38th St E Resurfacing Project is located in south Minneapolis between Chicago Ave and 23rd Ave S, excluding the intersection at Cedar Ave.

Construction Start Date:
August 8, 2012: This project is complete.

Length of Construction:
The construction duration has not been determined at this time. Paving work on each road is expected to take several days. Scope and duration of coordinated utility improvements is yet to be determined.
