Massive Reconstruction Project Underway on Hubbard Avenue in Robbinsdale
Robbinsdale is embarking on an extensive construction project to revitalize aging streets and improve the underground infrastructure.
The project will encompass a significant stretch of Hubbard Avenue, including 38th Avenue, Grimes Avenue, and portions of 36th Avenue and France Avenue.
‘This is a big project, it’s going to take the entire summer and and probably most of the fall,” stated Richard McCoy, Robbinsdale Public Works Director and City Engineer. “Right now we anticipate work will be completed come the first week of November.”
The decision to undertake this extensive project was driven by the need to address aging underground infrastructure.
Need to Address Aging Infrastructure
Hubbard Avenue plays a crucial role in providing essential services to the city, including efficient distribution of water across the city.
“Hubbard Avenue has a large diameter water main that serves the downtown as well as toward the south of the city,” explained McCoy. “With our new water treatment plant coming online, it’s important for us to get that water out to the the residents of the city by connecting into those those trunk lines.”
The estimated cost of the project is between $5.5 and $6 million.
