Gilfillan Area 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 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.
White Bear Township is considering street improvements for the following streets:
- Greenhaven Drive
- Gilfillan Lane
- Moon Lake Circle
- Crescent Curve
- Meadowlands Drive
