Hodgson Road Reconstruction
Hodgson Road (County Road 49) will be reconstructed from Gramsie Road / Rice Street to Bridge Street in Shoreview.
Final design is underway and construction is anticipated to begin in spring 2023. The purpose of the design and reconstruction project is to:
- Improve pedestrian and bike access in alignment with Ramsey County's All-Abilities Transportation Network plan. Pedestrian facilities will help connect users to parks, schools, churches and residential neighborhoods.
- Replace the aging pavement.
- Improve stormwater management.
In 2019, the top layer of pavement was replaced on Hodgson Road between Gramsie Road and Bridge Street to help prevent potholes and further road deterioration as a temporary solution prior to reconstruction in 2023. This was a more cost-effective solution than continually patching potholes; the driving surface was in very rough shape following the spring 2019 thaw. It did not fix the poor condition of the underlying pavement and road base, which will be fixed through reconstruction.
