Garnet Street and 168th Avenue Reconstruction,
City Improvement Project No. 13-10
A Feasibility Report was prepared for this project and may be viewed by clicking here.
The proposed improvements include grading, concrete curb and gutter, bituminous paving, drainage, utilities (sewer and water), sidewalk, and miscellaneous appurtenant improvements as needed to reconstruct Garnet Street between 167th Street and the north plat line of Now & Then Estates, and 168th Avenue between Garnet Street and the cul-de-sac to the west.
A map showing the street segments to be improved with this project can be viewed by clicking on the link below.
Work on this project will be allowed during normal working hours Monday through Saturday from 7 AM to 10 PM.
Once a preliminary work schedule is received from the contractor it will be posted on this web page. However, schedules are subject to change without notice due to adverse weather and/or other unforeseen conditions.
Access to all properties will be reasonably maintained at all times. While intermittent access restrictions may be required to allow work to progress in a reasonable manner, such restrictions should be of relatively short duration, typically on the order of several minutes to several hours at a time.
The existing pavement will be reconstructed by first removing the existing bituminous curb, pavement, and class 5 aggregate base. Then, the existing subgrade will be corrected by excavating 3 feet of subgrade soils and replacing them with 3 feet of select granular borrow. However, if during construction it is determined that the subgrade soils are suitable enough to allow one or both street segments to be constructed by scarifying one or more feet of subgrade soils, this method will be utilized with concurrence from the geotechnical engineer or their representative.
Paving will be completed in two separate lifts upon acceptance of the aggregate base grading. It is anticipated that the final lift of the bituminous wear course will be placed on both streets in the same year as the bituminous base course, as long as the weather cooperates and no deep utilities work is required under the streets. If deep utilities are installed, the wear course will be left off until the following year to allow the soils under the street sufficient time to settle.
During construction of utilities, all castings for watermain valves, manholes, and catch basins will be removed and the structures will be covered with metal plates to prevent construction materials from dropping into these facilities.
This project is proposed to be funded using several funding sources including special assessments. The preliminary assessment program is described in more detail within the Feasibility Report.
This web page will be updated as new information on this project becomes available.
Thank you in advance for your assistance in allowing this project to be completed in a safe and timely manner. If you have any questions or concerns regarding this work, or the contractor’s operations during construction, please contact City Engineer Bruce Westby at 763-433-9825 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
