Current Capital Improvement Projects

The City’s Capital Improvement Projects are developed based on meeting the future needs of the various utilities and street systems and are generally formulated through a comprehensive planning process.

The following projects are anticipated to begin this spring:

Park street roundabout

This large transportation project is for a new roundabout at the North Bend Way / Downing Avenue / Park Street intersection. This will significantly improve public safety on all approaches and will reduce transportation congestion and improve downtown walkability. 

In 2017, the City was a successful recipient of a $1 million federal grant toward this project from the Rural Town Centers and Corridors Program.

Construction is underway and anticipated to be completed by the end of October, 2019. 

The project includes: 

  • This project will provide a single lane roundabout at the intersection of E. North Bend Way and E. Park Street.  
  • The roundabout will feature a landscaped center island, planted/hardscaped splitter islands and median, a new illumination system, and stormwater improvements. 
  • The project will also provide a shared use sidewalk and trail connections for pedestrians and bikes, ADA compliant access, and minor parking and driveway reconfigurations.  
  • Additional work includes irrigation of planted areas, planting of street trees, replacement of watermain, permanent signing, street lighting, and undergrounding of existing overhead utilities.

Wastewater treatment plant improvements

The City's 2017 Wastewater System Facilities Plan describes a series of projects that need to be completed at the WWTP to allow the City to reliably and safely convey and treat sewage from the City. These projects add redundancy, enhance reliability, improve worker safety, support environmental requirements and eliminate hydraulic bottlenecks. Construction is currently underway of Phase 1. 

Phase 1 upgrades include: 

  • A new 80 foot diameter clarifier, including launder trough covers, weirs and scum baffles, clarifier sludge and scum collection mechanism, scum and waste activated pumping systems and RAS flow control system.
  • Rehabilitation and reconstruction of the existing clarifier.
  • Upgrade of UV disinfection system, including installation of new disinfection equipment.
  • A new mixed liquor pumping and flow splitting system.
  • A new effluent flow metering system.
  • A new automated secondary effluent pipeline flushing system.
  • Relocation and upgrade of the existing plant washwater system.
  • Site stormwater improvements.
