On Tuesday, May 9, the Ramsey City Council awarded the construction contract for this pavement marking project to Sir Lines-A-Lot in the amount of $68,703.00. These improvements will be funded using Municipal State Aid (MSA) maintenance funds.

Previously pavement markings were completed on a 7-year cycle as part of the annual seal coat improvements project. Since the City suspended the seal coat program indefinitely in 2019, pavement markings are only triggered on Municipal State Aid (MSA) streets during reconstruction and pavement overlay improvements. The current 2023 – 2032 Capital Improvement Program (CIP) includes an annual MSA Pavement Marking Improvements project to perform pavement markings on a 7-year cycle, outside of reconstruction and pavement overlays.

Pavement markings are a critical component of driver and pedestrian safety and are a required maintenance operation per MSA rules and standards.  

A total of 7.36 miles of public street segments is proposed to receive pavement marking improvements in 2023 as part of this project. These street segments were selected based on age since the last treatment and the next proposed trigger for treatment (i.e., seasons until a street reconstruction or pavement overlay).

Plans for the 2023 MSA Pavement Marking Improvements were prepared in-house as part of the Staff’s normal duties. A copy of the plans can be found in the right column.
