PUBLIC INFORMATION MEETING: 2024 Street Restoration Project & 2024 Alley Reconstruction Project

Tuesday, February 27, 2024

Project Number RC-000-3335

The Alley Reconstruction projects requires a full alley closure in order for the contractor to remove the existing alley surface, excavate, and install storm infrastructure (if applicable). The contractor will then place rock and then pave the new alley surface. The alley driveway approaches off the street and the corresponding sidewalk will also be removed and replaced with the exception of the downtown alleys. If the alley is slated for a permeable reconstruction, you will observe the concrete border to be poured prior to the infill of the permeable brick pavers. Any existing concrete driveways that are impacted by the new alley will be tied back into the new pavement with a concrete infill. Any rock driveways will be re-graded to meet the new alley surface. 

All plants, trees and shrubs within the city-owned right-of-way are subject to removal without replacement, but the contractor will make reasonable effort to limit disturbance during reconstruction. Any other ornamental or personal items that you wish to remain undamaged within the right-of-way should be removed or relocated out of the construction area for the duration of the closure. 

*Specific Note Regarding the downtown alleys: If you are anticipating any special deliveries or required access to the rear that cannot be performed under a full alley closure, please bring that to our attention at your earliest convenience.

Once we have contracts established, the contractor’s schedule will be reviewed, and the first street and alley closures will be determined. Construction work will begin around the first of May, depending on the weather. We will send each property owner and/or resident a letter five to seven days before the start of restoration on their street or reconstruction of their alley, notifying them of the upcoming closure, explaining the construction procedure and work entailed, mail delivery, and garbage coordination.
