Juliette Avenue Brick Rehabilitation

Project Description


Phase 1: The Juliette Avenue brick street from Bluemont Avenue south through the intersection of Laramie Street will be rehabilitated. The unevenness of the street will be addressed; curb and gutter repaired where necessary; undersized storm inlets replaced; and intersections at Moro and Laramie replaced with concrete. Bricks will be salvaged from the intersections to replace damaged bricks along the length of the project area. Pavers Inc. will construct Phase 1.

Phase 2: The second phase of this project continues brick street rehabilitation on Juliette Avenue from Laramie Street to Osage Street.

Budget


Phase 1: Total construction costs are $674,030 with an additional $134,806 for construction engineering. The Kansas Department of Transportation awarded a Transportation Alternatives (TA) program grant that will cover 65% of the costs. The city's share amounts to $284,000 and is anticipated to be paid from the Special Street and Highway Fund.

Phase 2: Construction cost is estimated at $536,000. KDOT awarded a second TA grant to cover 80% of the costs. The city's share is $158,282 likely to be paid from the Special Street and Highway Fund.
