During the 2023 construction season, two (2) City streets are queued for a reconstruction. Reconstruction involves a total removal and replacement of the roadway, with underground utilities replaced if needed. Often it requires closing sections of the road for two to three months.
The street with significant traffic impacts is W 18th Street. W 18th Street will be completed as two stages of construction. This allows for the shortest duration of closure while still maintaining meaningful accessibility to the directly impacted residences as the contractor can perform all necessary utility installation and pavement placement as uninterrupted as possible. It is anticipated that the W 18th Street work will take approximately 5 months to be completed, and the Madison Street work approximately 2 months. The work on W 18th Street is anticipated to begin in late April.
Along these roadways, new sod will be placed by the contractor. Care for this new grass will become the responsibility of the property owners beginning 30 days after placement.
This work is primarily funded by the Local Option Sales Tax. The following streets are scheduled for construction during 2023:
