With the completion of the seeding and sign installation, the work on Court Place is substantially complete.  Crews will continue with cleanup work and punchlist items over the coming weeks.

The City of Burnsville and McNamara Contracting thank you for your patience and cooperation as we have worked to bring you improved streets and utility infrastructure.  Property owners who have any residual concerns or questions regarding the work on the project are encouraged to contact the project inspector, Brad Mikiska, at 952-356-4506.

Crews completed the final layer of pavement placement earlier this week, as well as all hydroseeding of the boulevard areas.  While the contractor will apply water to the seed initially and periodically over the next month, individual property owners will be primarily responsible for maintaining and watering seed.  Property owners should water seed at least once per day.  The best time to water seed is in the early morning and/or late evening.  City crews will review the seed condition in approximately 5-6 weeks to determine if any additional seeding is needed.   

As part of the Metropolitan Council’s project, crews will be performing additional turf restoration and basketball court replacement work in Howell Park in the coming weeks.  Please refer to the Metropolitan Council’s project website (see above) for additional information regarding the scheduling of this work.  

Notification of the Public Hearing for this project was sent on August 20 to all property owners with proposed final assessments to the property owner address on file with Dakota County.  The assessment value for each property has been noted in that letter.  The Public Hearing is on September 8, 2015 at 6:30 PM at Burnsville City Hall.

Crews are beginning utility structure adjustments on Court Place today, and anticipate completing this work by the weekend.  On Monday, August 24th, crews are scheduled to pave the final lift of pavement on Court Place.  

Topsoil and seed installation is ongoing in boulevard areas disturbed by construction activities.  Seed will be applied with a mulch-like tackifier to help protect the seed and encourage germination.  While the contractor will apply water to the seed initially and periodically over the next month, individual property owners will be primarily responsible for maintaining and watering seed.  Property owners should water seed at least once per day.  The best time to water seed is in the early morning and/or late evening.  City crews will review the seed condition in approximately 5-6 weeks to determine if any additional seeding is needed. 

August 13, 2015

The first lift of pavement has been placed on Court Place.  Crews are working on curb backfilling and landscape restoration.  Restoration will consist of topsoil, seed, and a hydraulic mulch material.  Property owners are encouraged to assist with watering seeded areas to enhance seed growth.  

In the next week, crews will be raising utility structure castings to the final surface grade, and preparing for paving of the final lift of asphalt pavement. 

August 5, 2015 - REVISED

Pavement reclamation on Court Place is occurring today.  Starting on Thursday, August 6th, crews will begin grading and tolerancing work in preparation for pavement placement.  Crews will also be backfilling curbs and rough-grading ahead of topsoil placement.

Paving of the first lift of asphalt is tentatively scheduled to occur on August 12th, weather dependent.

July 29, 2015

Curb removal along Court Place has been completed.  Crews have also completed removal of utility structure castings in preparation for pavement reclamation work.  Curb installation will occur on Friday, July 31 and conclude on Saturday, August 1, weather dependent.  Residents who will have driveway impacts will receive notices regarding alternate parking locations along Court Place and Judicial Road during the curb installation work.  Once curb is installed, parking along Court Place will be allowed until driveway access can be restored.

Beginning August 3rd, crews will be reclaiming the asphalt pavement along Court Place.

Crews have begun work in the Court Place neighborhood this week with curb sawcutting.  Starting on Thursday, July 23, crews will begin spot curb removals and utility structure casting adjustments in preparation for the street reclamation work.  Beginning on July 29th, crews will begin pouring curb replacements. 

Residents are encouraged to check their front doors for notices regarding parking or driveway access restrictions associated with curb replacement.  Specifically, residents who live in the townhomes on the north/east side of Court Place (between street addresses 13251 and 13351, odd-side only) will be requested to park on the west side of Court Place and on Judicial Road while crews replace all the curb and associated driveway openings along the east side of Court Place.  Parking restrictions and interim parking location details will be provided in the distributed notices.

February 14, 2014

As was noted in the neighborhood meeting invitation (link here), the City has been working with the Metropolitan Council Environmental Services (MCES) to coordinate street work with regional sewer pipe rehabilitation and replacement work.  It has been determined that the MCES work will involve extensive excavations within existing utility easements, as well as excavation crossing Court Place.  The MCES has determined that their project work will not be able to proceed until late 2014 or early 2015.  Since it would be advantageous for all utility work to be completed prior to any street work occuring, the decision has been made to postpone the City street work until 2015

A formal letter explain this decision was recently mailed to property owners along Court Place, and a copy of the letter with a map showing the extent of the MCES work can be viewed by clicking the link below:

Court Place - Project Postponement Letter

The MCES will coordinate their work in 2014 directly with impacted property owners.  The City will maintain this website through 2015, and will continue to post any pertinent updates as they relate to the City street work, and links to pertinent MCES project information.  


If you have questions regarding the MCES project, please contact Ryan Piner, MCES Project Manager, at , or 651-602-4514.


December 30, 2013

Since early August, City staff have had the opportunity to review additional design and utility condition information for the Court Place neighborhood, and have determined that Court Place would be an excellent candidate to receive a third tier of street maintenance known as "reclamation."  Reclamation is a process whereby the existing asphalt pavement is ground up with existing gravel base material, compacted, and new asphalt pavement is placed on top to provide a new driving surface.  Reclamation is less expensive and has less impact and inconvenience than a full street reconstruction, and curb and gutter will only be replaced where it is severely cracked, broken, or settled.  Since existing utilities (sanitary sewer, storm sewer, and water main) are all in good condition, there will be very little utility work performed in conjunction with the street reclamation work.  

A neighborhood meeting is being held on Thursday, January 9, 2014 from 3:30 to 5:30 PM in the City Council Chambers at Burnsville City Hall for property owners interested in learning more about this project.

A formal letter explaining the project and providing notification of the neighborhood meeting was recently mailed to property owners, and a copy of the letter with the project area map and contacts for City staff can be viewed by clicking the link below:
