Marie Avenue and Wesley Neighborhood Improvements

TKDA Follows Minnesota Statutes to Improve Pavement and Regional Trails

The City of Mendota Heights retained TKDA to improve the pavement within the Wesley Lane Neighborhood and Marie Avenue between Lexington Avenue and Dodd Road. Both projects followed Minnesota Statute 429, involved assessments, and used State Aid funding. Other coordination included private utility relocation and coordination with Dakota County for regional trail improvements.

While the street improvements were the primary focus, the Marie Avenue improvements also included land bridge repair, tunnel rehabilitation, trail additions and improvements, bump-outs, digital signage, park improvements, ADA improvements, trail crossing, retaining wall replacement, pond cleaning, vegetation management, watermain, and storm sewer. Communication with residents was an important part of the project and included neighborhood meetings, public hearings, special in-person meetings, newsletters, and special flyers.

The Wesley Neighborhood Improvements included rehabilitating local roadways. The general improvements included full-depth pavement reclamation and spot curb and gutter replacement. Several areas required soil correction. The project also included a key area of trail on the adjacent Dodd Road, which involved filling the roadside ditch, installing a storm sewer, adding curb and gutter, and building the trail. The team carefully considered grades on Dodd Road to minimize impacts.
