Updated January 27, 2021

On January 12, 2021, the Ramsey City Council ordered plans and specifications for City Improvement Project #21-05, 2021 Municipal State Aid (MSA) Pavement Overlay Improvements, which proposes to overlay 0.72 miles of bituminous pavement on the following two segments of the City’s MSA street system. Property owners will not be assessed for any of the costs for these improvements.

  • Sunwood Drive between Bunker Lake Boulevard and Sunfish Lake Boulevard
  • Sunwood Drive between Erkium Street and Trunk Highway 47.

Overlaying these MSA street segments in 2021, which is identified in the 2021 – 2030 Capital Improvement Program, will allow the City to maintain these streets in the most cost-effective manner throughout the serviceable life of the streets.
