The City of Ramsey’s 2023 – 2032 Capital Improvement Program (CIP) has identified streets within the Halls Dover Acres subdivision for reconstruction in 2024. The streets within the subdivision that will be affected are generally between 157th Lane and 158th Lane, East of Nowthen Blvd (CSAH 5). Standard neighborhood traffic levels and flow will continue during the reconstruction. However, given the New Creations at the Lodge Childcare Center; 157th Lane and Nowthen Blvd are suspected to have a higher traffic count.
Sewer and water drainage exist through swales adjacent to the roadway and street crossing culverts. This City Improvement Project proposes to replace the existing culverts and review the drainage swales to determine if drainage improvements are required.

The Ramsey City Council awarded a proposal from Bolton & Menk, Inc. to complete a topographic survey for Hall’s Dover Acres subdivision. On June 27, 2023, the City Council also awarded Chosen Valley Testing, Inc. a proposal to complete a geotechnical report for the same areas.
The geotechnical report will require 15 soil borings, all of which will be taken in the streets. You can expect to see a soil boring truck and crew members. The streets will remain open to traffic during the soil borings. A firm schedule of when this work will be performed is unknown but expect it to occur within the next several weeks.
The topographic survey will be taken across the entire City-owned right of way and will include a survey of the street, drainage swales, light poles, signs, trees, landscaping, and driveways up to the right of way. You can expect a crew of 2-3 surveyors and a pick-up truck. This work is scheduled to occur between July 10 and July 21, 2023.
Part of the topographic survey includes surveying existing utilities, both municipal and private, such as cable, gas, and electric lines. Bolton & Menk will call Gopher One State to locate utilities in the area, so you will likely see paint and flag markings within the project area.
