Residents will have access to their driveways for the majority of the construction project. However, if and when concrete curb and gutter is being replaced in front of your driveway, the City requires a 5-day minimum curing time with no disturbance to the concrete. There also may be short periods during the day you may not have access to your driveway due to roadway construction. Property owners will be provided as much advance notification as possible when access to driveways will be restricted. If you are planning to replace your entire driveway in 2024 it will be best to schedule that after construction on your street and driveway is completed.

Streets within the 2024 Street Rehabilitation Project area are identified within the City’s Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) for rehabilitation. The roadways included within this project were selected as part of the City’s Pavement Management Program. This program is used by the City to manage and extend the pavement life of our streets and select improvement projects in a cost-effective and efficient manner.

The City of Lakeville has specified the following working hours:
No work is permitted on Sundays or holidays.
Sections of maintained lawn that need to be removed for construction will be restored with new seed at the end of the project. The contractor is responsible for watering the new seed for 45 calendar days following installation, after which time it is the homeowner's responsibility. Please do not mow new seed during this time period as it will hinder growth and potentially cause it to die.
Private features such as irrigation systems, pet containment and landscaping located in the right-of-way may be affected and/or damaged during construction. If you wish to protect these items we ask that you temporarily remove the systems or landscaping from the boulevard area. In an effort to limit the damage we ask that you flag or mark any underground irrigation or pet containment wires. It is also your responsibility to relocate any plantings that will be disturbed by construction; the contractor will not replace plantings, or fix irrigation, invisible dog fence wires or landscaping when they complete final restoration. All utility excavations and curb/sidewalk work will be marked out ahead of time with white paint. Residents can then visualize what areas of their boulevards will be affected by the project.
Over the winter, the City will conduct tree pruning work and tree removals within the right-of-way only, for trees that are anticipated to be impacted by construction. Any additional tree removal needs associated with construction activities will be communicated to property owners on a case-by-case basis.
