Project Purpose & Need

The purpose of this project is for reconstruction of water mains, water services, sanitary sewer, sanitary sewer services, storm sewer, aggregate base, concrete curb and gutter, concrete walks, bituminous pavement, and other appurtenant construction. Project components being modified include:

  • Pedestrian Improvements - replacement of all sidewalks, and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) upgrades at pedestrian crossings.
  • Utility Replacement - the project will include replacement of aging water, sanitary sewer, and storm sewer utilities, including water and sanitary service lines from the mains to the property line.
  • Pavement Replacement - the project will replace aging pavement and concrete curb and gutter.
  • Utilities and infrastructure are aging - some of the water and sewer utilities under the street have been temporarily patched in the past and need to be brought up to current state standards.
  • The storm sewer is in need of replacement with proper sized pipe and intake locations. Storm sewer will be added up 10th, 11th, and McSorely Streets to meet drainage needs in the area.
