2017 Infrastructure Renewal Plan
City staff has developed a plan of action for repaving as much as 50 city blocks of streets. City Council is expected to approve financing for the plan later this Fall. Depending on winter weather, that work is expected to get underway before the end of calendar year 2017. Known as the 2017 Infrastructure Renewal Plan, it calls for an updated pavement study to be completed first, after which the worst 5% of 60 miles of City streets will be targeted for repaving.
