Lexington Avenue Watermain Improvements

Overview

The City of Roseville will be replacing the watermain on Lexington Avenue between Oakcrest Avenue and Woodhill Drive in 2022.  The watermain is being replaced due to high break history and to upgrade existing failing infrastructure.  Work is being done at this time because Ramsey County will be resurfacing Lexington Avenue between Highway 36 and County Road C2 in the summer of 2022.  By doing the projects at the same time, impacts to the public will be minimized. 

The cost of this project is funded by City utility funds.  There will be NO ASSESSMENTS for this work within the City of Roseville.

Schedule

Week of May 23 – Watermain work will continue. 

Week of May 30 – Watermain work should be completed and temporary water removed. Restoration work will begin. 

Week of June 6 – Restoration work will continue. All work should be completed by the end of the week and traffic control will be removed. 

Work will continue through mid-June.

Traffic Impacts

Traffic on Lexington Avenue between Oakcrest Avenue and Woodhill Avenue is reduced to one lane in each direction by eliminating the center left turn lane. Traffic is shifted to the east to allow for watermain construction. The west leg of the Woodhill and Lexington intersection will be closed. On Tuesday May 24, westbound Woodhill should open. The intersection should be fully opened the week of May 30.
