The City of Roseville continues to build more pathways so pedestrians and bicyclists can safely navigate our city!
"Roseville was largely built in the 1950s and 1960s before sidewalks were a priority in many suburban communities. The city created a pathway master plan and is slowly building those connections,” said Public Works Director Jesse Freihammer. “We have a limited budget, so each year we pursue outside funding and partnerships with others.”
Funding for new paths comes from federal Community Development Block Grants, Roseville Municipal State Aid Funds, and Ramsey County State Aid Funds.
Retrofitting our city with paths can be challenging, Freihammer said. There isn’t always a lot of space and roadsides are not always graded for paths, which sometimes requires the construction of retaining walls.
“Once the new paths are completed, most residents are happy that we’re making those connections.” – Jesse Freihammer, Public Works Director
