Funding:

Purpose:

  • The existing water main is asbestos cement pipe, which was installed over 40 years ago and is being replaced to minimize impacts and costs associated with breaks.
  • The street reconstruction is necessary because the existing asphalt street section has deteriorated significantly and has exceeded its life expectancy.
  • The reconstruction will include asphalt street paving, gravel base, curb and gutter, storm sewer, driveway approaches, street lights, sidewalks, and a shared use path.
