Transportation Improvement Program
The Transportation Improvement Program consists of a five-year schedule of projects developed by assessing the condition of the existing system. The program identifies county road projects for implementation based on community input and financial resources. Projects are prioritized for implementation based on technical analysis, employee resources, existing roadway conditions and opportunities for project coordination with cities or the Minnesota Department of Transportation.
The Transportation Improvement Program is reviewed annually. Additional projects are added to the program based on funding analyses.
Ramsey County has a cost participation policy designed to equitably distribute the cost of construction and major maintenance projects between the county and partner communities. County cost participation continues to increase as pedestrian, bicycle and transit features are added to the roadway system.
Estimated costs identified in this program are based on construction of similar roadways. Expected costs of engineering and right-of-way acquisition are included in the project estimates.
