    The Contractor began performing weed removal, seeding, and hydromulching in the areas that only received hydromulch in fall 2022. This work is anticipated to last through the week of 6/13.

  • Turf Restoration Delay

    Turf establishment is delayed due to mechanical problems with the contractor’s hydro seeder equipment. Shipping delays on replacement parts are not helping the delay either.

    It’s the contractor’s responsibility to establish turf free of weeds, so they will need to take care of the weeds as well. The contractor anticipates resuming work in early June.

    We're sorry for the delay. We understand the frustration. The City is frustrated at the lack of progress as well. Thanks for your continued patience.

    Property owners are responsible for clearing snow and ice from the newly installed Hansen Road and West 56th Street sidewalks. According to Edina City Code, Chapter 24, Section 91:


    "All snow and ice shall be removed from a sidewalk by the owner of the property adjoining the sidewalk within 48 hours of the cessation of the precipitation."


    Note that any snow removed from walkways, driveways or sidewalks must remain on the property and cannot be plowed into City streets or onto a neighboring property. Violation of the City Code could result in a fine and a charge for removing the snow.
