McClaine Street between Main Street (southern extent) and C Street (northern extent) has exceeded its useful life and requires reconstruction. Reconstruction of the right-of-way (ROW) will include a new road surface, storm drainage, larger sewer pipe, new sidewalks, and bike lanes.
The estimated cost for final engineering and construction is $5.1 million. The initial estimate for underground utilities is $1 million, for a total project cost of $6.1 million. The adopted Fiscal Year 2019/2020 Budget includes $4.3 million for Final Design and construction. It is likely that the funding gap will require public financing which will be addressed when the Final Design is completed this fall.
July 2018 - Public Works contracted with Keller Associates for pre-design of McClaine Street Reconstruction project for $49,950.
February 2019 - Two conceptual designs were presented to City Council.
