The City of Burnsville improves a select number of local streets each year. The selected streets are identified annually in the five-year Capital Improvement Plan (PDF). Improvements are prioritized based on factors such as age, street condition, utilities condition and the type of street.
Street reconstruction and reclamation are generally chosen for streets in poor condition. Street rehabilitation is generally chosen for streets in moderate condition.
When the City constructs, improves or maintains our streets, property owners who have a direct benefit from this improvement may be charged a special assessment to cover all or a portion of the cost of the project.
At the Jan. 10, 2023 City Council Work Session, City Engineer Jen Desrude presented an overview of the street improvement process. Watch the video below to learn more about how Burnsville cares for its roadways.
Streets tentatively planned for reconstruction and rehabilitation over the next five years are identified in the City’s Capital Improvement Plan (PDF). Streets identified for reconstruction may utilize the reconstruction or reclamation strategy described above.
Please note that the planned year does not constitute a guarantee that improvements will be done that year. The plan is reviewed annually and updates may be made at any time.
