7th Ave Road Project Updates

7th Street Reconstruction Project
The reconstruction of 7th Avenue from Rum River Drive to 12th Street N, and includes the construction of a roundabout at 7th Ave N/12th Street N.
The current schedule anticipates for the following:

     • Private utility relocations will begin on June 13th. Princeton Public Utilities have recently been onsite relocating their utilities and will continue to do so over the following week.
     • The project will be constructed in two phases:
          o Phase 1 will consist of the reconstruction of sanitary sewer and watermain between 12th Street and 11th Street. Once the utilities are completed in the intersection, the contractor will begin the                       construction of the roundabout at 12th Street N in order to have the intersection open for the start of school.
          o Phase 2 will include the utility construction from the south end and moving north to 11th Street, followed by the street reconstruction.

Important items to note:
          o Construction staking is currently underway at the north end of the project. Please do not pull stakes they are necessary for the current construction schedule
          o Removal limits will be marked in the field soon; this will include driveway limits, bituminous street limits, trees, etc. The removals will initially be limited to the north end of the project.
          o Removals will begin the week of June 17th, please anticipate the intersection of 7th Ave/12th Street to be closed during this work.
          o The contractor will soon begin to connect properties to temporary water until the new watermain has been installed and the services have been reconnected and tested. More detailed information                   will be provided prior to this work taking place.
          o Property owners immediately impacted will be contacted soon to obtain a right of entry to their property. The project includes connecting the existing sanitary sewer and watermain services to each                  property. The connection will take place right at the property line, which means that some construction activity will be taking place on private property. The right of entry allows the contractor to      make this connection at the property line; should we not receive a signed right of entry, the sewer and water connections cannot be fully replaced to the property line.

More updates will be provided as scheduling information becomes available. Please check for more information.
