Annual Street Construction Program
2018 Street Construction Project
During the construction season this year, 16 city streets will be reconstructed or restored. The work is funded by the Local Option Sales Tax. Reconstruction involves a total removal and replacement of the roadway, and underground utilities are replaced if needed. Often it requires closing sections of the road for two to three months. Restoration is typically an asphalt overlay, but could include fixing the curb or other smaller issues. Road closures for restoration are typically shorter or only partial closures.
West 4th Street (from Angie Drive to Hudson Road) and West 12th Street (from Clark Drive to College Street) will be our longer projects this year. West 4th Street construction will begin at Hudson Road and continue west to Chateau Court (Phase 1). That section will be under a complete closure and is anticipated to be completed before the school year ends. When Phase 1 is complete, the contractor will continue west, closing the area from Chateau Court to Angie Drive (Phase 2) until August 2018. Phase 2 is planned to be reopened to traffic before school resumes. See image below.
Work on West 12th Street will begin at Clark Drive and continue east to Division Street (Phase 1). It will be closed until the school year ends. When Phase 1 is complete, the contractor will continue east from Division Street to Catherine Street (Phase 2). Phase 2 will include the intersections of Division Street and West 12th Street, and also
the intersection of West 12th Street and Catherine Street. This section will be under a complete closure until August 2018; it will reopen to traffic before school resumes. From September–November the contractor will work on the roadway from Catherine Street to College Street (Phase 3). See image below.
