Update 6/25/18: The base course has been paved on the entire project. Minor concrete work remains. Restoration work behind the curb will take place in early to mid July. Wearing course will be paved once restoration work is completed.
Each year the roadway segments that are in the most need of repair throughout the City are reconstructed as a portion of the City of Andover’s street reconstruction program.The neighborhood north of 143rd Avenue, south of Round Lake, and east of Xenia Street (see attached location map) has been identified in the City’s 5-Year Capital Improvement Plan for reconstruction during the summer of 2018.
The project will consist of reclaiming the existing bituminous roadway, shaping the existing gravel, replacing deteriorated concrete curb and gutter, widening the roadway on the north side of 143rd Avenue to provide a striped shoulder for safer pedestrian access, minor drainage improvements, and constructing a new bituminous surface. Once construction is completed, 143rd Avenue will match the existing section width west of the project limits.
The project will be funded from the City’s Road & Bridge Fund (reimbursed through Municipal State Aid Funds), with 25% of the total project costs for the improvements (based upon a standard width overlay) assessed to the benefiting properties as identified in the City’s Roadway Reconstruction Assessment Policy.
Douglas-Kerr Underground was the low bidder for the project and awarded the contract. We anticipate that construction will begin in early to mid May, with the project being completed by the end of summer. A mailing will be sent out to impacted residents prior to the beginning of construction providing additional information.
