2019 Street Improvement Updates

July 26, 2019

Construction has begun on this year’s street improvement project which covers the Partridge Estates and Heather Ridge neighborhoods. The improvements include miscellaneous storm sewer/sanitary sewer/water main repairs and replacement, replacement of isolated sections of structurally damaged curb and gutter, repaving of the asphalt pavement section, and installation of uniform street lighting. It also includes replacing the top surface of pavement on Helmo Avenue from 15th Street to Upper 23rd Street.
T.A. Schifsky & Sons, Inc. is the Contractor for this project. They have successfully completed many similar projects for the City.  This work will be done in phases by area to help minimize disruption. All project work is scheduled to be complete by early September.
