2023 Infrastructure Improvement Project

At the September 26 New Hope City Council meeting, the City of New Hope accepted the Feasibility Report for the proposed 2023 Infrastructure Improvement Project, and authorized a public hearing to be held on October 24, 2022. This project would begin in the spring of 2023. A map of the affected streets can be viewed at the link below.

The project map identifies streets in blue as proposed “reclaim and overlay” roadways with watermain replacement. Streets highlighted in green are proposed “reclaim and overlay” roadways without watermain replacement. A reclaim and overlay road improvement involves removing the entire pavement section of the roadway down to the gravel base. Roadways will remain gravel, typically for two to three weeks, while the contractor performs subgrade repairs on the road base. Roadways will then be re-paved with a full new layer of pavement.

The project map identifies streets in purple as proposed "mill and overlay" roadways. This type of road improvement involves removing the top layer of pavement. Any subsurface repairs will then occur on the remaining road pavement. Three weeks after the initial pavement removal, roadways will be re-paved with a full new layer of pavement.

Streets highlighted in salmon were originally proposed for mill and overlay improvements in 2023, but were delayed to 2025 due to current pavement conditions after further evaluation during the preparation of the feasibility study.

In addition to pavement rehabilitation and water main replacement, a pollinator/rain garden is proposed at Northwood Park and drainage improvements are proposed near an inlet of Meadow Lake.
