    I’m sure I missed this somewhere but when is this supposed to be complete on 42nd? I thought I saw November but below I’m seeing reference to a xcel energy delay. What is that delay from and when do you think the project will be finished then?

    Nicole7362 asked 10 days ago

    Thanks for your question. The utility work on W 42nd St was delayed due to Xcel Energy not relocating power poles that were in conflict with our construction. Xcel began their relocation work in late August, and once complete, the City's Contractor will begin the utility work on W 42nd St. 

    The contractor does still have W 42nd St scheduled to wrap up in Late October/Early November.

    Is the City of Edina providing temporary ADA accessible ramps/pathways and other interim options for people with disabilities and older individuals who may need mobility support while the roads and sidewalks are torn up, driveway aprons are not complete and their properties not accessible? Thank you

    Pippa asked 18 days ago

    Unfortunately, there is not enough room within the City right of way to accommodate both the construction work area and temporary infrastructure that meets ADA standards.  

    Please reach out to Evan and he can attempt to accommodate residents with concerns about accessibility.

    Do you have any updates for 4315 Morningside? We have perennials that will need to be moved before the fall, but we don't know how far past the sidewalk digging will occur.

    lavy asked 23 days ago

    Thanks for your question. The tentative start date for Morningside Road (Phase 5) is early October.  Based on the Xcel Energy delays on West 42nd Street, it's possible Phase 5 may need to be postponed until spring 2023.  Many factors will contribute this, including Xcel Energy progress, weather, favorable conditions for utility work on West 42nd Street, etc.  Phase 5 updates will be posted on The Morningside D&E BTE page.  

    If you reach out directly to Evan Acosta at eacosta@edinamn.gov or 952-826-0448, he can give you specifics to the construction limits.

    Hi - I’m curious what the plan is for Morningside Rd? Is that part of Phase 5? What is the expected timing based on the current progress with the other phases? Thanks!

    Jeremy asked 26 days ago

    Thanks for your question.  Yes, Morningside Road and Grimes Avenue south of Morningside Road are Phase 5.  We're hoping Phase 5 begins in October.  Based on the Xcel Energy delays on West 42nd Street, it's possible Phase 5 may need to be postponed until spring 2023.  Many factors will contribute this, including Xcel Energy progress, weather, favorable conditions for utility work on West 42nd Street, etc.  Stay tuned for future Phase 5 updates on  BTE.

    Will there be trees planted along the Lynn/Kipling pond to replace what was removed? How large and what kind? During what phase of the project will that pond be lowered? Thank you

    TolouseLatiff asked about 2 months ago

    Thanks for your questions.   The Lynn / Kipling pond excavation will occur this winter as part of the flood infrastructure project, which is a separate project from the roadway and utility project.  Engineering Services Manager Ross Bintner would be happy to discuss the remainder of your questions, as he is managing the flood infrastructure project.  Ross’s contact information can be found here.

    When will Crocker Ave be blocked or closed?

    Frank asked about 2 months ago

    Thanks for your question.  The short answer is it's still to be determined.  The long answer is the contractor would like to begin the deep storm sewer work on West 42nd Street but their schedule is dependent on Xcel Energy relocating utility poles.  Xcel Energy continues to delay their relocation work.  The contractor may soon be forced to begin the deep storm sewer work on Crocker Avenue to stay on schedule.  Before the closure begins the contractor needs to set up wells, generators and pumps to temporarily lower the groundwater so the storm sewer work can be completed in a dry environment. 

     

    Stay tuned to this webpage for future updates on road closures.

    We live on Ottawa (between w 42nd and w 42nd 1/2 st) and they’re digging up our yards over here but on the project map I don’t see our street on there. Is this part of the project? Is there another map I’m missing? We just spent a ton of money to get sod and have spent so much time watering the grass to get it to grow.

    Ihatethis asked about 2 months ago

    Thank you for your question. The City of Edina’s roadway and utility project does not include Ottawa Ave in St. Louis Park.   

    The work in the boulevard in front of your home may be related to private utility installation by US Internet.  We recommend contacting St. Louis Park’s Engineering department for questions related to this work.  They can be reached at 952.924.2656.

    I’m responding to the answer below about the purpose of the project and just want clarification here. So the project isn’t for fiber optic internet installation but that is happening at the same time by another contractor. Is the timeline of the project and/or the cost that residents have to pay for the project/assessment affected in any way by the internet installation? I’d assume not but want to double check.

    Selena8197 asked 2 months ago

    The fiber optic project has no bearing on the special assessment for the roadway improvement project.  The roadway project schedule shouldn't be affected by the fiber optic work either.

    Thank you.

    Is 42nd closed? There’s been a sign up saying it’s closed to thru traffic but as a resident driving, only half the road is actually driveable because of construction materials everywhere. Is the road permitted to be closed? If not, are the construction vehicles and materials able to sit and block the road for this long if it’s technically still open? Lastly, as a new resident I’m confused what the construction is for. Someone said to install internet but I’m seeing it’s to avoid flooding.

    Selena8197 asked 2 months ago

    Thanks for your question.   West 42nd  Street is open if your home is within the road closed to thru traffic signs.  Otherwise, a different route should be taken.  West 42nd  Street will be closed later this summer when utility work begins.   

    The construction is for roadway and utility improvements. See a summary of improvements on the front page of this project page.  Fiber optic internet installation is occurring by a separate contractor to take advantage of the active roadway and utility project timeline.
