Concrete streets rehabilitation

The City rehabilitates select concrete streets every year.

Key information





Program overview

Concrete streets deteriorate over time as water and salt enter joints and cracks.

Factors that worsen conditions:

  • Poor drainage
  • Underlying soil conditions
  • Higher traffic volumes

The Concrete Streets Rehabilitation program extends the life of concrete streets throughout the city.

We target concrete streets for which a proper repair will:

  1. prolong the street’s life and
  2. improve ride quality and neighborhood livability.

Repairing concrete generally consists of:

  • Saw cutting
  • Removing and replacing deteriorated concrete joints
  • Other pavement distresses

We also replace concrete panels that we cannot salvage.

Other updates we may make:

  • Upgrade select pedestrian ramps
  • Replace select curbs and gutters
  • Resurface the street pavement with a diamond grind

Any of these tasks will likely require us to replace less than 25 percent of the pavement. Along with the street work, we’ll make improvements to gas, water, and sewer utilities.

2022 locations

In 2022, the City will rehabilitate concrete pavement at the following locations in the Seward and Hiawatha neighborhoods of Minneapolis. Construction is expected to take place during the 2022 construction season. City forces will be doing a portion of the work and the remaining work will be bid out.

  • Minnehaha Avenue from Franklin Avenue East to 24th Street East
  • 44th Street East from Minnehaha Avenue to Edmund Boulevard
  • 42nd Avenue South from 42nd Street East to 46th Street East
