McKnight Road Resurfacing
The surface layer on McKnight Road between Burns Avenue and Minnehaha Avenue in Saint Paul and Maplewood will be removed and replaced with new, smooth pavement.
Work is expected to take place in the summer.
Detours or temporary lane shifts may be in place.
Beginning of tab section with 2 tabs. Left and right arrow keys will navigate between tab navigation links.
The county and cities of Saint Paul and Maplewood will be coordinating with the Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) on the potential resurfacing and traffic signal replacement along this segment of Stillwater Avenue. Since this segment of roadway is a state highway, MnDOT has jurisdiction over improvements. MnDOT has construction planned for 2022.
A new, smooth layer of pavement was added to two segments of McKnight Road in 2020 to extend the life of the driving surface:
- Pond Avenue to Burns Avenue in Saint Paul and Maplewood.
- Stillwater Avenue to 7th Avenue in Saint Paul, Maplewood and North St. Paul.
As part of the project, the road was restriped from an undivided four-lane road to a three-lane roadway with one traffic lane in each direction and a center left-turn lane. Learn more about 4-to-3 lane conversions.
Pedestrian crossing refuges were added at Hillsdale Avenue, Edgebrook Avenue, the Villages on McKnight (just south of Burns Avenue), Arlington Avenue, Nebraska Avenue, Montana Avenue, Hoyt Avenue and Ripley Avenue. The traffic signal at Larpenteur Avenue was replaced and signal revisions were made at Holloway Avenue, Maryland Avenue and Lower Afton Road.
Stormwater management improvements were completed south of Maryland Avenue.
