Otter Ridge Circle Street Improvements


Otter Ridge Circle from Otter Ridge Road to Meadow View Drive (approx. 580 feet east of Otter Ridge Trail) was constructed in 1994. In 2019, White Bear Township conducted a Pavement Management for all Township roads, in this report, Otter Ridge Circle was given a 1.99 rating, meaning that reconstruction shall be considered. This project was evaluated in 2014, but did not have support to move forward.

On May 18, 2020, the White Bear Township Town Board ordered the preparation of a feasibility report for Otter Ridge Road street improvements.

At this time the Township has awarded the project to Kuechle Underground and the contract process is underway. Construction is set to begin week of May 17. Please refer to the updated Construction to Begin informational flyer for more details.
