St. Paul to repave crumbling Ayd Mill Road this year after slate of complaints – Twin Cities

Following a hope of public complaints, St. Paul's officials said they were going to reproduce the crumbling, pothole-laden Ayd Mill Road this season – a project that didn't separate for another two years.

"The ongoing efforts to regularly patch and maintain the road are expensive and are no longer sufficient or sustainable. We cannot wait until 2021 to complete this project," said director Kathy Lantry in a written statement Tuesday.

The road transports 24,000 vehicles a day and has been maintained in recent years with hot patch.

But after the winter thawed residents complained heavily on social media that its decay transformed it into a driving danger.

The $ 3.5 million project announcement came after city officials had already released their road project list in 2019.

The total budget for the old "mill and overlay" list was $ 2.7 million which means that the Ayd Mill project alone will surpass it.

In addition, the city is spending $ 3.5 million to repair parts of downtown this year as part of a special, funded project.
