Plans for the City of Grant streets were discussed at the council meeting on Jan. 24. Tom Werblow of TC Engineering made a presentation during the public hearing on the one-and-six-year street plan.
Werblow explained the projects listed on the street plans do not necessarily have to be completed, but a project not listed in the plan could not begin. Therefore if a project was being considered it was best to list it in the plans.
The projects on the one-year plan are projects that are likely to be planned and bid for this year. In addition to ongoing curb and gutter repairs, they include:
• A new development for residential housing east of Perkins County Elementary School. Cost to be determined.
• Application of seal coat to existing street surfaces, according to need, at an estimated cost of $95,000.
• Replacement of existing asphalt with concrete, as well as some storm sewer and water line replacement at an estimated cost of $360,000, on Fourth Street from Lincoln to Central Avenue and Fifth Street from Central to Washington Avenue and Hancock to Logan Avenue.
In addition to these projects, two others are on the six-year plan.
