City Awards Winpark Drive Construction Contract

New Hope Awards Winpark Drive Construction Contract
Posted on 02/13/2019
At the Feb. 11 New Hope City Council meeting, the City Council approved the construction contract for Winpark Drive improvements to S.R. Weidema, Inc., who bid $1.65 million on the project.

The need for the Winpark Drive improvements were identified in the 2018 Pavement Management Plan. The current pavement rating for the street is 25, which is considered “very poor”.

The Winpark Drive project includes:
• Full reconstruction of .55 miles of the street
• Complete water main replacement
• Storm sewer lateral replacement, water quantity and quality improvements
• Sanitary sewer casting/ring replacement, future lining

A portion of Winpark Drive is shared with the city of Crystal, which will contribute roughly $140,000 to the project.

Construction will begin in spring/summer of 2019, as weather allows, and is expected to be completed in late summer/early fall of this year.
