With the arrival of summer, you will see a lot of maintenance activity on Hennepin County roads including repaving County Road 19 from Water Street to Echo Road in Excelsior.
The county monitors the pavement condition on county roads and creates an annual list of projects best suited for repaving. These are referred to as mill and overlay projects. Pavement from the existing road is removed by milling. Then, crews overlay the road with a new layer of pavement. Each year, the county completes approximately 140 lane miles of repaving.
