Downtown Paving, Sidewalk & Utility Improvements Project

Project Goals:

  1. Repave the roadways.
  2. Repair the sanitary sewer system.
  3. Make drainage improvements.

Public Engagement:  Development of the project will include a significant public outreach and engagement process to help determine the scope of the project. Community members will have opportunities to participate in a public engagement process, through stakeholder meetings, public workshops and City Council Meetings. Throughout the engagement process, design engineers will develop conceptual plans that consider stakeholder feedback.

Sanitary Sewer System Repairs: The initial phase of the project will focus on repairing the sanitary sewer system - a much needed investment in aging infrastructure and the protection of groundwater and environmental sustainability. 

At this time, we estimate that the City will conduct Sanitary Sewer Repair no sooner than May 1, 2020. Construction will be phased, so that the impacts are concentrated in one area at a time. Construction will generally take place Monday-Friday, from 8 am to 5 pm. 

There may be some night work, depending on the construction phasing and community needs. There will not be work on weekends.
