18th Avenue NW (CR 112) Reconstruction from 37th Street NW to 55th Street NW – J7813

18th Avenue NW, also known as County Road (CR) 112, provides a critical connection in the growing northwest corner of Rochester. As the community has grown north to 55th Street NW and beyond, the traffic on 18th Avenue NW has also increased. The goal of this project is to reconstruct 18th Avenue NW to improve the function and safety of the roadway for pedestrians, bicycles, transit and vehicles while better serving the surrounding urbanizing land uses.

The proposed project includes reconstruction of 18th Avenue NW (CR 112) from 37th Street NW to Royal Place NW and pavement rehabilitation from Royal Place NW to 55th Street NW. The proposed project will replace deteriorated pavement, replace existing signal systems, address aging sanitary sewer and water main utilities, provide pedestrian enhancements, improve the storm drainage system, construct an urban section with a mini roundabout, add bike lanes, and add landscaped medians for access management improvements.

Construction of Wheelock Drive NE - J7814

The City of Rochester will construct Wheelock Drive NE from the temporary cul-de-sac near Fire Station #2 to an intersection with E Circle Drive NE. The project includes grading, installation of utilities (water, storm sewer and sanitary sewer), and asphalt paving of a 36-foot wide street with concrete curb and gutter. 

Construction began with tree clearing on April 4, 2017 and the majority of the construction will be complete by October 7, 2017. However, due to the time required to allow settlement of the large amount of fill dirt needed for the southern end of the project, the connection to E Circle Dr NE will not be paved and completed until July 28, 2018.
