2024 PMP Street and Utility Improvements

Project Overview

On March 13th, 2023, the Arden Hills City Council authorized preparation of a feasibility study for a potential 2024 PMP Street and Utility Improvements project affecting the following areas: 

  • Keithson Drive from Highway 96 W to the south 800-feet
  • Royal Hills Drive from Snelling Avenue N to Arden View Drive
  • Arden Vista Court
  • McClung Drive
  • Colleen Avenue
  • Colleen Circle
  • Briarknoll Circle
  • Briarknoll Drive
  • Norma Avenue from Dawn Circle to Colleen Avenue
  • James Avenue
  • Royal Lane   

The City has contracted engineering consultant, Bolton & Menk, to conduct a feasibility study which will evaluate the extent and costs for replacement or repairs to street and trail pavement, water main, sanitary sewers and drainage infrastructure. They will be conducting field measurements and gathering survey information over the next several weeks.  During this time, residents may notice a survey crew taking measurements in the roadway areas and to a limited extent in their driveway and front yard adjacent to the road. These measurements will be used in the study and assist with the engineering design. Underground utility items that are difficult to locate, such as the water service shutoff valve at the property line, will also be temporarily marked with flags or paint.  These markings are temporary, and can be removed once the survey crews have completed their work. 

During this evaluation process, residents adjacent to the proposed streets for the project will receive a survey form to assist with determining needed improvements within the neighborhood. Residents can also contact City engineering staff by email or phone with any questions or comments related to potential street and utility improvements.
