Why is this project being done?

The existing water mains are undersized and require an upgrade to increase capacity and hydrant flow.  Also, the current condition of the pavement is poor and in need of replacement.

Work to be done​

  • The existing water mains will be replaced with larger water mains to increase capacity.
  • The existing pavement will be replaced.
  • Some existing curb, sidewalk and ramps will be replaced for Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliance.
  • Some storm water improvements.
  • Some safety improvement features are being considered.  These include installing new pedestrian crosswalks at the Norwood Street and Edgewood Dr.  
  • City Council directed staff to implement a four lane to three lane conversion and add bike lanes.

Possible impact to residents

  • Platt Road will be open for traffic for the duration of the construction.  Traffic will be maintained with one lane in each direction. Driveway access for local traffic will be maintained but may include delay during working hours.  Cross street traffic will be maintained as much as possible.
  • Water service will be interrupted for short durations during water main relocation for a few residents. Disruptions will be limited, and residents will be informed in advance. 
  • General noise and dust from equipment, particularly during site excavation.

Costs and funding source

Federal Funding, City Street, Bridge, and Sidewalk Millage, and Drinking Water Funds will fund the majority of the work on this project.
