2021 & 2022 Street Improvements

Overview
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 Program to 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
  • Portland Avenue
  • Martin Way
  • Homewood Avenue
  • Lakewood Avenue
  • Stacker Boulevard
  • Stacker Place
  • Randy Avenue
  • Roth Place
  • Effress Road

The White Bear Township Pavement Management Program identified these streets for possible improvement in 2021 and 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.

At this time the Township has awarded the project to Kuechle Underground, Inc. Construction is set to begin in the coming weeks. Please refer to the Construction to Begin informational flyer for more details.
