UPCOMING CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS
2017 Street and Sidewalk Project
Scheduled to begin in June, several blocks of neighborhood streets on the west side of County Road 19will be milled and overlayed. In addition to the street work, the old bituminous (asphalt) trail behind the curb on these street segments will be replaced with a concrete sidewalk and a narrow grass boulevard. The project is scheduled to be completed by the end of August. Project streets are highlighted in the figure to the right:
This summer neighborhood trails in the Oakside Park area and many of the Towne Lakes area trails will be overlayed. This work is being coordinated with other city projects and will completed between mid-June and the end of August.
Intersection of CR 19 and 57th Street NE
Currently the city is working on plans to add designated left turn lanes to 57th Street NE and County Road 19. The project will include road widening, modifications to the existing signal system, and new cross walks and pedestrian ramps at each corner of the intersection. The project is currently in the design phase and is expected to be bid and constructed during the 2017 construction season.
Main Avenue Railroad Crossing
The BNSF Railroad crossing at Main Ave NE is scheduled to be replaced this spring. The old timber crossing will be replaced with a concrete crossing. The project will also include the addition of sidewalks on both sides of Main Avenue through the crossing area.
