Elm Road Improvements, City Project No. 20-08

Elm Road is a gravel road in the southwest portion of the City of Maple Grove that connects Lawndale Lane and Vicksburg Lane. Several properties along Elm Road have been approved by the Maple Grove City Council for single family residential development.  Map of proposed development

The added demand for water, sewer, and vehicle access requires the city to improve the roadway corridor as a major collector (per the City Transportation Plan). Included with the improvements are large diameter water main, sanitary sewer mains, and stormwater facilities.

The City Council has received the Feasibility Report describing the proposed improvements and estimating the cost.  The next action by City Council will be to hold a public hearing and order preparation of construction plans. Construction is expected to move forward in 2020.
