Current Road, Bridge & Signal Projects
The Engineering Department determines the need for new street construction, improvements to existing streets, bridge repair/replacement, and traffic signal installation/improvement.
According to the complexity of the proposed project, the Engineering Department will either do an “in-house” design or contract with an Engineering Firm that has established credentials to provide the necessary survey and design. After obtaining the approved plans and specifications, the City will accept bids from Construction Firms that have shown adequate experience in the type of construction required for the proposed project.
The following projects are currently in various stages of completion:
- Royal Street Improvements between Chester Street and Lexington Avenue – This project consists of widening the street, installing decorative sidewalks & crosswalks and upgrading traffic signals. Relocation of utilities is near completion. Project will proceed once all utility relocation is completed.
- Hollywood Drive Improvements between Hwy 45 By-Pass and Millmaster Drive – This project consists of widening of this section of Hollywood Drive to five lanes and construction of bike lanes. Relocation of utilities has begun. Project will proceed once all utility relocation is completed.
- Campbell Street Improvements between North Parkway and Weatherstone Drive. This project consists of widening of this section of Campbell Street to five lanes and improving the North Parkway/Campbell Street intersection and upgrading the intersection traffic signal. Acquisition of right-of-way is currently underway.
