Maryland Avenue Resurfacing
Existing road stripes between Greenbrier Street and Johnson Parkway will be removed on Friday, May 19. Restriping the road to three lanes and the addition of medians at Greenbrier and Duluth streets will take place the week of May 22, weather permitting.
The addition of medians at Greenbrier and Duluth streets will eliminate the ability to cross Maryland Avenue at these intersections. Left turns from Maryland Avenue to Greenbrier and Duluth streets will be eliminated.
The road work will result in lane shifts and travel delays. Motorists are encouraged to plan ahead to allow enough travel time.
There are no changes to Metro Transit bus stops at this time.
Test project: 4-to-3 lane conversion
Ramsey County will temporarily change the stripes on Maryland Avenue beginning in mid-May to test impacts of converting from a 4-to-3 lane road for improved safety. Impacts evaluated will include traffic speed and volume, bus delays and pedestrian crossings. Maryland Avenue will remain open to traffic during the test project. A community meeting was held at the East Side Freedom Library on Wednesday, May 3 to share information about the 4-to-3 lane conversion test project.

Maryland Avenue (County Road 31) will be resurfaced between Greenbrier Street and Johnson Parkway in Saint Paul to create smoother and safer driving in summer 2017. Land surveying crews will work in the project area prior to, during and immediately after construction.
