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.

Larger scale projects, as well as the county's reconstruction and reconditioning projects, are posted annually.

General overviews and a list of paving projects and other active maintenance are listed below. You are encouraged to check this page regularly to get the most accurate list of upcoming projects.

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

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.

The county monitors the pavement condition on county roads and creates an annual list of projects best suited for repaving. These mill and overlay 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 full closures or detours.

Our 2021 list of repaving projects:

There are multiple ways we provide a smoother surface and reduce or eliminate issues that may lead to additional, more costly pavement repairs. These projects vary depending on the type of work needed to extend the lifespan of the pavement. They can be completed with minimal traffic impacts, but have immediate and long-lasting effects.
