Project Manager: Anthony Horton

Assistant Project Manager: Brady McKinley

Current Project Status: Construction

Project Scope:
   Asphalt Overlay on a series of streets for the CIP Program, over the next 5 years. This CIP street overlay work will be combined with the annual Street Resurfacing Program and the additional $1,050,000 each year will be used to resurface major thoroughfares. 

Project Funding:
   Cell Phone
   CIP Sales Tax

Project Funding Amount: $5,671,888.00

   This asphalt overlay program is part of the overall CIP program funded by 1/2 cent sales taxes approved by the voters in 2013. Starting in 2014, $1,050,000 of CIP funds, budgeted for each of the next five years thru 2018, will be used for asphalt resurfacing of major thoroughfares within the city. The "CIP Street Overlay Program" was combined with the annual "Street Resurfacing Program" into one large resurfacing program with a combined total annual budget of $2,306,000. The 2016 contract included funding to resurface the Hyde Park parking lots next to ball fields 1- 5. The contract will be left open in order to resurface the parking lots once the renovations to the ball fields are completed in the spring of 2017. Weather permitting, the plan is to overlay the parking lots that serve fields 1-5 before the grand opening on May 6. The typical annual budget in the general fund for street resurfacing is currently $1,256,000 which will provide resurfacing in 2017 for over 7 miles of asphalt streets. Again in 2017 a portion of the 2013 1/2 cent sales tax funding or $1,507,000 was added to the program budget which will resurface about 6 miles of major thoroughfares for a combined total of ~13 miles for this 2017 Program. The resurfacing program includes a combination of one to two inch overlays primarily over existing asphalt streets and some complete street rebuilds that are typically five inches thick. As part of this project, a large milling machine will also remove one to two inches of asphalt from a street before the asphalt is put in place. This top layer of asphalt is called the wearing course, which needs to be removed and replaced after several years. Some highly traveled streets, such as Frederick Avenue need to be resurfaced every six or seven years, while low traffic residential streets can last up to 20 years. The 2017 Resurfacing Program, with a 2.7 Million plus budget, was advertised for bids on December 18 and the bid opening was on January 12. Herzog Contracting was awarded the contract after Council approval on January 30. The Notice to Proceed was issued on February 22. This early bid letting has allow the contractor to start resurfacing streets early this spring. Herzog has already completed ~85% of the contract work to date . Final completion date is set for October 31, 2017.
