Senator Ann Johnson Stewart (DFL-Minnetonka), in collaboration with the city of South Saint Paul, Minnesota chapter of the American Public Works (APWA), and Raise our Grade MN will be hosting an “Infrastructure Walk” of the Concord Street Improvements Project construction site on Wednesday, June 9, from 10 a.m.-11 a.m.
The project involves replacement of infrastructure that has surpassed its useful life as well as roadway reconstruction of Concord Street in South Saint Paul from I-494 to Annapolis Street. These developments would greatly improve local economic growth, traffic congestion and safety concerns, and increase connectivity for commuters.
“The Concord Street Improvements Project is a timely upgrade in infrastructure and roadways to the community of South Saint Paul and those who commute through there,” said Senator Ann Johnson Stewart. “This project will not only improve commuting efficiency for multi-modal commuters and cut down on time stuck in traffic, but also make necessary changes to known safety hazards. Additionally, replacement of current infrastructure that is nearing the end of its useful life will result in much-needed economic growth and development for local businesses.”
The “Infrastructure Walk” at the construction site of this project will offer a firsthand look into how contractors approach infrastructure and roadway projects as well as an overview of the project’s history.
