Road maintenance projects

Each year, the county completes maintenance work to keep the road surface in good repair, to extend the life of the pavement and take care of roadway assets. General overviews and a list of paving projects and other active maintenance are listed below.

You are encouraged to check back regularly to get the most accurate list of upcoming projects. Larger scale active projects, as well as the county's reconstruction and reconditioning projects, are also posted on the county's interactive transportation map.

Crews also may be working alongside the road throughout the year on activities like mowing, striping, signal painting, guardrail repairs, sign and signal improvements.

Other road projects and projects near roads in your area may be led by the Minnesota Department of Transportation, your local municipality or various utility companies.

We thank county residents for their patience during the construction season and for being safe around work zones and crew members.

Paving (mill and overlay) projects

These are internally referred to as mill and overlay projects. The county monitors the pavement condition on county roads and creates an annual list of projects best suited for repaving.

Each year, the county completes approximately 110 lane miles of repaving. These projects are substantially shorter than a full reconstruction of a road, typically lasting only a few days to a couple of weeks, and do not require closures or detours.

The 2018 project list is below:

Pavement sealing (cracksealing)

Cracks in the road in previously identified and scheduled areas are routed and sealed. These projects take place on the road, so they can look like big projects. They typically last only a few days, and do not require road closures or detours. All work is performed alongside traffic.

The 2018 projects have been completed. Future projects will be posted below once they have been scheduled. 

Pedestrian ramps

Hennepin County crews work to replace and upgrade the sidewalks along county roads. These projects are part of the county’s ADA Sidewalk Accessibility Plan. These projects typically take about a week to complete.

Due to the nature of this work and the weather required, this work takes place between the spring and fall months. The 2018 project list is below:
