On street parking on Highland Street (12th Ave. to 16th Ave.) will be impacted at times during construction.
Franchise utilities (electric, gas, telecommunication) will be relocating their facilities for the proposed utility and roadway project up to and during the construction project.
The City’s contractor will begin construction the week of March 13, 2023. The contractor will begin with proposed sanitary sewer and waterline improvements along Highland Street from 14th Ave. to 15th Ave. and Highland Street will be closed to through traffic from 14th Ave. to 15th Ave.
After the sanitary sewer and waterline improvements, the roadway and drainage improvements will be phased into two (2) pieces to be constructed independently, thereby impacting Highland Street traffic only a portion at any one time. On street parking on Highland Street (12th Ave to 16th Ave) will not be allowed during construction. The project is expected to last through Summer 2023.
