Farrell-Ferndale Street Improvements

Project Status Update:

Utility repairs and replacements are mostly complete in the portion of the project south of Minnehaha Avenue. Utility work remaining in this area includes the replacement of watermain along the Conway Service Drive and the installation of a large box-culvert near Lion's Park on Farrell Street. These items will be completed in the next 2-3 weeks. They are currently on hold until Xcel Energy completes their gas main replacements in the area. 

The construction of the new road base has shifted to Margaret Avenue. 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. The road base has been completed on Ferndale Street and 5th Avenue.

The installation of concrete curb and gutter is complete on Ferndale Street. Curb installations are likely on 5th Avenue and Margaret Street the first week of September. 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!
