Roads in the Linwood, East Orange, and Old Alvin Drainage and Roadway Improvement Project – Packages 1 & 2 area are open.
All lanes in the Linwood, East Orange, and Old Alvin Drainage and Roadway Improvement Project – Packages 1 & 2 area have been opened to through traffic. Work on the installation of sidewalks, backfill, sodding, signage and striping remains.
The $5.8 million project includes the conversion of Linwood Street, East Orange Street between SH-35 and Schleider Drive, and Old Alvin Road between Plum and Town Ditch to concrete curb and gutter roadways with enclosed drainage systems and sidewalks, and the addition of a new water line on Linwood and East Orange. Work on this project is expected to be completed ahead of schedule in May 2018
The City moved forward with the design and construction of the project in August 2016. The project is part of the overall street reconstruction project in the Capital Improvement Program that consists of the rehabilitation, reconditioning and reconstruction of non-TIP funding eligible collector streets throughout the City. The specific streets are based on priorities derived from the Thoroughfare Plan, the Condition Assessment Program, traffic counts and types of traffic loads that roadway sees. The specific activity selected for each roadway may vary with the objective to maintain or improve the current average assessment score citywide.
