Laurel Street Pathway - Hallinan to Cornell

Project Background/Summary

In 2008 the City performed an alternative analysis to determine the feasibility of a pathway on Laurel St. Based on the results of that analysis the Laurel St Pathway project, which is currently in design, consists of a 6 ft wide sidewalk between Hallinan and Cornell. This project also includes road widening and a retaining wall on the narrow portion of Laurel Street, stormwater infrastructure improvements and will incorporate some existing sidewalks.

Currently, the project is at the 60% design level.  It is anticipated that the bidding will occur in mid-spring with a summer time construction schedule. The construction budget is estimated at $2.1 million which includes necessary right-of-way acquisition and contingency.
