This project will be divided into four phases:

1. Phase 1 - 18th Avenue South from 42nd St. to 40th St.
2. Phase 2 - 40th Street South from 19th Ave. to 18th Ave.
3. Phase 3 - 18th Avenue South from 40th St. to 39th St.
4. Phase 4 - 40th Street South from 17th Ave. to 18th Ave.

Driveway access will be maintained as long as possible, but access will not be possible at all times.


Construction is anticipated to start in May of 2022 and be completed in fall of 2022.


The project will be funded by a combination of Streets Sales Tax and Special Assessments to benefiting properties. Assessments will be applied per City policy.


The street reconstruction is necessary because the existing asphalt street section has deteriorated significantly and has exceeded its life expectancy. Reconstruction will include asphalt street paving, gravel base, drain tile, curb and gutter, and ADA ramps.
