Find out more about this important project. See the final design plans and learn about the phased construction schedule. There will be a short presentation at 5:15 pm, followed by an opportunity for you to ask questions and provide input.

During the summer of 2015, the City of Hopkins will be making improvements to rehabilitate the pavement and streetscape along Mainstreet.

This public improvement project is intended to essentially provide a face lift, while maintaining the corridor's classic character. The primary scope of the project is proposed to include:

  • Resurfacing of the roadway from Shady Oak Road to 5th Avenue
  • Replacement of broken/defective curbing, sidewalk panels, and deteriorated pavers
  • Pedestrian upgrades at traffic signals and curb ramps at intersections
  • Replacement of old water main and services between 11th Avenue and 5th Avenue
  • Rehabilitation or replacement of streetscape features in need of attention such as benches, signs, trees and plantings in poor health, etc.
  • Correction of nuisance drainage issues
