J Street Repairs-Update

Phase I of improvements on J Street have been completed. The Council met on June 19, 2018 and awarded Pavers Inc the J Street mill and overlay job for Phase II.  Pavers Inc will begin work in this area on September 13, weather permitting. The repairs/construction work is expected to take approximately one week.  As a result, J Street will be closed to through traffic from 11th to 14th Street.

We understand this poses a temporary inconvenience to our citizens and appreciate your continued patience as we work towards completing the project.

The overall project consisted of:

Phase I:

  • Removing and replacing undersized storm sewer culverts and aging sewer lines in the intersections from 14th Street and J Street to 11th Street and J Street
  • Repairing damaged storm sewer inlets
  • Pouring concrete valley gutters through specific intersections to direct the heavy flows of storm water at these intersections
  • Installing ADA sidewalk ramps

Phase II:

  • Removing the existing asphalt and replacing it with new 6” asphalt paving on J Street from 14th Street to 11th Street

Due to budget constraints, the City was not able to extend the mill and overlay work down J Street from 11th Street to 8th Street, however, these streets are currently being armor coated in an effort to extend their life until the budget allows for full replacement.
