2023 Falcon Heights Pavement Management Project


The City of Falcon Heights manages a comprehensive Pavement Management Program which includes repaving several miles of local streets every two years.  To see which streets are included in 2023, please see the proposed Project Map.

The majority of the proposed roadways will have the top layer of asphalt section removed and repaved.  Spot curb and gutter repairs will also be done as part of this project.  We expect very little impact to driveways on those streets as part of this project.

Garden Avenue is proposed to have more extensive work done, which would involve removal of all asphalt and re-construction of the roadway.  At the November 9, 2022 City Council meeting, the Council approved moving forward with design Option 4 and Option 7.  Both of these options include a sidewalk on the north side of the roadway and a reduced street width.

Option 4 (Segment 1 - Garden Ave - West of Holton Street):

Opton 4 Opens in new windowOption 7 (Segment 2 - Garden Ave – Holton to Hamline):

Segment 2 - Option 7 (Concept F) - Combined Opens in new window

Frequently asked questions for the Garden Avenue work are available here.  Previously considered Garden Avenue Design Options are available here.

Ruggles Pathway

The City Council hosted a public hearing on March 22, 2023, to consider a vacation of a right-of-way easement for a pathway that connects Pascal and Holton Streets along Ruggles Avenue. The City received a petition from adjacent homeowners requesting the vacation.  Following the public hearing, the City Council voted 2-3 in approval of the vacation request, so the vacation was not approved.  The City Council directed staff and city engineers to include options in the 2023 Pavement Management Program (PMP) bid to include quotes for various paving options of the pathway.  A final decision on paving the pathway has not been made by the City Council.

Neighborhood Meeting

Previously, the City hosted a neighborhood meeting to discuss the project as a whole on October 5, 2022.  The City also hosted two open houses, on April 5, 2022 and July 20, 2022, to discuss the Ruggles Street pathway proposal and Garden Avenue.  The exhibits and handouts are posted on the right for review.
