The project is anticipated to include some storm sewer and watermain replacement. Sanitary sewer will be evaluated during project planning to identify any concerns. Other elements replacement of a multi-use trail, street lighting, striping and signage as part of the project scope.

Preliminary project design began in 2021 and will continue this year. Neighborhood outreach, a proposed special assessment district, and notification of the protest period are anticipated to occur in the spring. Pending results, the final design phase would be in mid-2022 for a fall bid opening and 2023 construction.
