Proposed Improvements

Proposed street improvements include full reconstruction with new curb and gutter throughout the project area.

Proposed water main improvements include the removal and replacement of valves and hydrants throughout the majority of the project area. Additionally, all water services will be replaced from the main to the property line. The trunk water main running along 21st Avenue North and 4th Street North is not proposed for replacement; the pipe’s condition has been reviewed and doesn’t need replacement at this time.

Sanitary sewer improvements include the removal and replacement of the main, manholes and service lines to the property line.

Proposed storm sewer improvements include removal and replacement of the storm sewer main, addition of storm sewer inlets to reduce water ponding in the street and improvements to reduce sediment accumulation near the Duck Pond.

Pedestrian facilities include removal and replacement of the existing sidewalk along the avenues near Mainstreet. New sidewalk will be added along 18th, 19th, and 20th Avenues from Mainstreet north along the east/west alley.
