Cogan Avenue Water Line and Road Reconstruction Project

This sixth option was formulated to take into account testimony the Common Council heard with regard to the minimization of the use of the City’s 15 foot right-of-way. This project necessitates a major rebuild, rather than a repave, because the infrastructure underneath the roadway and roadside must be reconstructed to remedy water and sewer line deterioration and improve road drainage. Each year the City embarks on at least one major roadway construction project using Consolidated Local Street and Highway Improvement Program (CHIPS) funding from the state. This funding requires the city to follow specified design criteria and engineering. With engineered rebuilds using state-funded projects, sidewalks on both sides of the road are required. However, for this option the Common Council has worked closely with the engineers to employ less than a third of its 15 foot right-of-way, and would be performing landscaping to replace trees that need to be removed to repair the underground infrastructure.
