Current work

We are on the home stretch on Hwy 24/Oak Ave and crews will focus on pedestrian facilities and the new asphalt road surface on Hwy 24/Oak Ave. New road and sidewalks to open by Oct. 5.

Pedestrian walks, boulevard

  • Pour concrete walks downtown and continue along Hwy 24/Oak Ave. until completed. Pedestrians should stay out of closed areas and follow detour signs.
    • Install pedestrian walk in bump-outs, also known as curb extensions or pedestrian peninsulas, at Chestnut St., Cedar St. and Cherry Ave. Bump-outs provide better visibility of pedestrians about to cross the road, shortens crosswalk distance and reduces motorist speed at intersection.
    • Install stamped color enhanced concrete in boulevards
  • Streetscape planting of trees and flowers to be completed in 2021 on a separate contract. To learn more about the streetscape plan, visit the City of Annandale, at www.annandale.mn.us
