Customer: St. Paul Parks and Recreation


For the past six years, Bituminous Roadways has worked with St. Paul Parks and Recreation on nearly 20 asphalt paving projects. These projects range from preventative maintenance work, like cracksealing and pothole patching, to complete parking lot reconstruction.


Many of these projects fall under the city’s budget threshold, creating more of an opportunity to build a vendor-customer relationship rather than a bid being awarded solely on lowest price. Working with a vendor consistently for years brings an understanding of the process. For BR, we know and understand how St. Paul Parks and Recreation likes the job estimates prepared and how the work needs to happen.


“For me, it seems like when things need to be replaced, BR just makes it happen,” stated Joe Buzicky, Asset Manager for St. Paul Parks and Recreation. Joe has worked with BR estimator Brian Johnson since the relationship started.


These two have been through many projects together, including the reconstruction of Newell Park, patching on Lake Phalen Trails, and most recently, a mill and overlay/reclaim of the Rice Arlington Fields parking lot.


Project Details:

This project is one of the larger in scope that BR has completed for St. Paul Parks and Recreation. The two adjoining parking lots were in rough shape. For the west parking lot, 1,016 SY was milled to a depth of 2”. Once the surface was milled and swept, BR’s paving crew came in and installed a 2” lift of asphalt. The second lot, an area of 4,638 SY, was reclaimed and paved. A trail was also reclaimed, shaped and paved during this project.
