2022 Street Improvements

Street maintenance is one of the largest and most expensive responsibilities of Township government. White Bear Township is continuing to make improvements to their Pavement Management Programto preserve the Town’s 42.9 miles of local roads, provide for the safe and efficient travel of its citizens, retain property values, keep the city attractive and desirable, and minimize costs to the property owners and taxpayers for the Town.

Project Information

White Bear Township is considering street improvements for the following streets: 

  • Birch Knoll Drive
  • Effress Road
  • Martin Way
  • Portland Ave

The White Bear Township Pavement Management Program identified these streets for possible improvement in 2022. On November 2, 2020, the White Bear Township Town Board ordered the preparation of a feasibility report for the Township’s 2021 / 2022 street improvements. Below is a map showing the street improvement areas studied in the feasibility report.
