Farrell-Ferndale Street Improvements

Project Status Update:

Utility repairs continue throughout the southern portion of the project (south of Minnehaha Avenue). Watermain has been replaced on all of Ferndale Street, Farrell Street south of Lion's Park, Fremont Avenue, and half of 5th Avenue. The remainder of the watermain on 5th Avenue will be completed by Friday, August 3rd. Early the week of August 6th the watermain work will shift to Farrell Street north of Lion's Park an then onto Margaret Avenue. 

The construction of the new road base has begun at the south end of Ferndale Street, working to the north. This work consists of removing 2 feet of the existing unstable soils and replacing them with a geotextile fabric overlain with 1-foot of free-draining sand and 8-inches of aggregate base. It is anticipated that the new road base will be complete on Ferndale Street around August 10th. The road base construction work will then shift to the east along Fremont, 5th, and Farrell Street.

The installation of concrete curb and gutter is planned to begin on Ferndale Street around August 16th. Please keep an eye on your door for flyers notifying you of curb installation around that time.

Overall the project is moving along well. A lot is happening in the neighborhood with our project, along with Xcel Energy's gas main replacement occurring simultaneously. Please continue to use caution when driving through the project area.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation as we work together on improving your neighborhood!
