The pavement is severely deteriorated with widespread cracking, missing pavement pieces, patches, and a rough surface. The pavement condition is rated as failed.
The project goals include addressing deteriorated pavement and roadway infrastructure, reducing frequency and severity of crashes, improving transportation safety and mobility for all users, enhancing stormwater management, implementing traffic calming measures, as well as avoiding, minimizing, or mitigating environmental impacts.
The project is 80% federally funded and 20% City-funded, up to the federal cost cap for the project. If that cap is exceeded, any additional cost would be 100% City-funded.
Assessments to property owners for sidewalk and driveway approach replacement in front of their property would be sent near the end of the design phase of the project. Assessments will be calculated based on the City's share of the final cost.
