The City Council on Monday discussed the implementation of the City’s new infrastructure maintenance strategy, a plan approved as part of the 2013-2014 Budget. The new budget includes a 75 percent increase in funding for maintenance of streets, screening walls, bridge railings, traffic signs, poles and markings.
The maintenance plan includes $1.6 million for pavement repair on Arapaho, Floyd, Buckingham and Apollo roads as well as asphalt patch replacement in several neighborhoods. Nine bridge rails throughout the City will be redesigned and updated. Next month the City will begin washing and painting screening walls and entry signs.
By summer of 2014, 450 overhead street name signs are expected to be installed on all major arterials. The City is also replacing all neighborhood small street name signs that are more than 10 years old, in two of the 12 traffic zones.
All projects are expected to be complete by Sept. 30, 2014. Homeowners and Neighborhood Associations will be notified prior to work beginning in their area. Watch the work session presentation at bit.ly/15Puk0H.
