Paving Projects 

This page lists the paving projects on arterial roadways anticipated to take place in calendar year 2021. Road users should expect the roadway surface to be grooved or uneven until paving is completed. Travelers should expect lane closures and delays for the duration of the work. Where sidewalk and curb ramp work is proposed, pedestrian detours should be expected.

The scope of this MPI Paving project is repaving and pedestrian improvements along Elm Street. The project includes milling (removing) the existing pavement surface and installing new asphalt pavement overlay, curb ramp and sidewalk segments in poor condition within the project limits will be reconstructed to be compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and a new striping pattern incorporating a designated bike lane for a majority of the project limits will be installed.

A public meeting was held on 3/11/21; the PDF of this presentation is in the links below.

This project has been awarded to Shaw Brothers. Minor work will be scheduled to start in 2021 but a majority of this work will take place during 2022.

The scope of this MPI Paving project is repaving and pedestrian improvements along Stevens Avenue. The project includes milling (removing) the existing pavement surface and installing new asphalt pavement overlay, curb ramp and areas of sidewalk in poor condition within the project limits will be reconstructed to be compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and new striping along the corridor to incorporate bike lanes.

This project was bid and all bids came in over budget. We are anticipating to put the project back out to bid with a revised scope in hopes for construction in 2022.
