Severely cracked from thermal contraction and old age White Bear Parkway along with Birch Lake Boulevard needed major repairs to accommodate traffic demands. TKDA provided complete engineering services for the rehabilitation of these two commercial collector streets in the City of White Bear Lake.
Prior to pavement replacement TKDA coordinated spot utility repairs. Bituminous pavement was removed by a combination of milling the upper layers and reclaiming the lowest layer, which was used to improve the crown. Following these improvements curbs and catch basins were repaired. After shaping and completing the reclaimed the gravel base the three-lift bituminous surface was paved one lane at a time in order for two lanes of traffic to always remain open.
