2019 Sidewalk Gaps

The process began with the Northfield City Council ordering a Feasibility Study on October 16, 2018. The Feasibility Study examines the proposed street and utility improvements along these street corridors to determine whether the project – as proposed – is feasible, cost effective and necessary.

The entire project area will receive a full depth reclaim (up to 12”), which means the asphalt will be ground up and mixed with the underlying gravel base to establish a new base for new asphalt. This reclaimed material will then be reshaped and recompacted in order to receive 4” of new asphalt pavement. Minor spot repairs on utilities, curb and gutter removal and replacement, and tree removals will be completed as necessary.  Sidewalk gaps will be evaluated during the feasibility report, and new sidewalk installations will be proposed along the project corridor.


The process for developing the special assessments for properties along the project corridor follows Minnesota State Statute Chapter 429-Local Improvements, Special Assessments. The Project Process steps are typically completed to take advantage of a positive bonding environment and to make full use of the construction season.
