Public Works Projects

  • Public works projects safely preserve existing infrastructure, increase roadway capacity, improve mobility and enhance neighborhood livability. 

    2018 construction projects 

  • Kane Drive

    This project will replace the temporary emergency Kelly Creek culverts (pipes) under Kane Drive with a permanent, fish-passable culvert that will prevent flooding and last for many decades.  The City’s permanent repair is scheduled for summer 2018, when stream flows are low, there is more daylight and there is less impact to schools during summer break.

                 Full Depth Reclamation (FDR)

                     

                    SE Hillyard Road

                    Project Overview

                    This project replaced existing pavement.  The road was rebuilt using a process that provides a stronger base, is cost effective, saves time and resources.  Full Depth Reclamation (FDR) rebuilds worn out asphalt by recycling the existing roadway. 

                     

                    Hogan Road

                    Improvements

                    Hogan Road between NE 23rd Street and NE Division was treated with Inlay to fix the portion of the pavement that still has a good foundation. The top layers of the pavement were milled (grinding the upper layers of asphalt) to remove any cracks, ruts or imperfections. A new layer of asphalt was then applied, creating a smooth road way.

                          Walters Drive between Springwater Trail and SW Blaine Ave. 

                          The road was rebuilt using a process that provides a stronger base, is cost effective, saves time and resources.  Full Depth Reclamation (FDR) rebuilds worn out asphalt by recycling the existing roadway.   

                          • Grind down existing road to rebuild the road base.
                          • The asphalt is then mixed with cement, making a stronger road base.
                          • The base is shaped and compacted.
                          • Asphalt is applied.
