Metropolitan Council Environmental Services is making improvements to approximately one mile of aging and deteriorating regional sanitary sewer facilities that serves homes and businesses in Fridley. There are no direct costs or special assessments for this work, which is scheduled to take place from June 2017 to June 2018.
This project will rehabilitate approximately 4,000 feet of regional sanitary sewer pipe by installing a liner inside the existing sewer – a process called Cured In Place Pipe. Sewer manholes will be repaired or replaced as necessary along the way. Excavations will be needed at several manholes to install the new sewer liner and rehabilitate manholes.
Utility, road and bike trail impacts
Utilities will be temporarily relocated in order to complete the sewer work. For more information, visit Xcel Energy and CenterPoint.
The eastern side of the Mississippi River Regional Trail (bike trail) will be closed July 31st to September 1st from 4600 East River Road to 3600 East River Road. The intersection of 37th Avenue NE and East River Road will remain open.
The detour route is as follows: Bicyclists heading south through the project area will need to cross the river at Interstate 694, and follow the North Mississippi River Regional Trail south until 42nd Avenue North/37th Avenue NE. Bicyclists heading north through the project area will need to cross the river at 37th Avenue NE/42nd Avenue North and follow the North Mississippi River Regional Trail north until Interstate 694.
We appreciate your patience with this trail closure. The longer closure will allow crews to complete their work, instead of having multiple short-term closures.
Traffic will remain open on East River Road, but there will be shoulder closures in order to accommodate construction crews and temporary wastewater conveyance pipes.
