The Public Works Department is preparing the plans and specifications for the Arizona Street Reconstruction Project. This project is the design and construction of underground utility installations, sidewalk and curb and gutter replacements and pavement replacement on Arizona Street between Nevada Way and Utah Street.
The first work to be completed will be the underground work which will include the installation of utility conduits, vaults and equipment pads, replacement of water service laterals, water valves and fire hydrants. There will be disruptions to water service to replace old, broken valves and services. Back-flow prevention devices will be installed on the new water services in compliance with state law. Electric Division crews will install the cable in the conduits and equipment on the pads at a future date.
Next, the concrete work for the project will include removal and replacement of failed and deteriorated concrete sidewalk, curb and gutter, and the removal of existing and installation of new ADA ramps at intersection corners where the existing ramps do not meet current standards. Not all of the existing sidewalks, ramps and curbs and gutters will be replaced, only sections that need to be replaced.
Finally, the pavement replacement will include repaving and striping of the roadway. The existing pavement will be pulverized and blended with the existing base material to create the new base. The roadway will then be paved and striped. The existing concrete pavement at Hotel Plaza will be protected in place to the greatest extent possible.
The project will take approximately six months to complete. Construction is scheduled to begin in July. Being a property or business owner in the project area, you will be affected by the construction. The contractors selected for the work will be required by the contract documents to provide access to all properties and businesses at all times during construction of the improvements.
If you have any concerns, questions or suggestions regarding this project please contact me, Lindsay Whittaker, Environmental Compliance Coordinator, at email@example.com or Monday through Thursday, 8:00 am to 5:00 pm at 702-293-9200. The City is committed to working with you through the construction process to lessen the impact to your business.
