Century Avenue project slated to begin soon

Construction is expected to begin next week on the Century Avenue improvement project, which spans from I-94 to Lake Road. The project will also improve Valley Creek Road from Weir Drive to just west of Century Drive.

The $14 million project is a joint effort between Ramsey and Washington counties and will widen Century Road to four lanes and install new traffic signals at Century Avenue/Lake Road and Century Avenue/Valley Creek Road intersections.

During the construction, the road will be open to traffic, one lane in each direction, with some minor road closures. When road closures are needed, a detour will be provided with advanced warning signs.

The construction project is expected to be completed in its entirety by fall 2010.

Ramsey County is the lead agency for construction.

Future project updates will be provided via Ramsey County Public Works at
