From: Brian Dunevant

COUNCIL ACTION
Work Session:     09/03/2019
SUMMARY
The Public Works Engineering Division has prepared Revenue Sharing Applications to request Revenue Sharing Program funds for Fiscal Year 2021 and Fiscal Year 2022 for construction of various street improvement projects as identified below. These applications are requesting half of the estimate project costs. 
  • FY 2021 Intersection Improvements for pedestrians at Riverside Drive and Piney Forest Road. ($150,000/$300,000) This project will improve pedestrian facilities at this intersection. There is a bus stop on the south side of the intersection but no facilities for pedestrians to cross to the north side. There have been documented pedestrian hits in the area.
  • FY 2021 Memorial Drive / Craghead Street Improvements from Union Street Bridge Road to Patton Street. ($850,000/$1,700,000) This project will help support the future Riverfront Park and development of the White Mill property by improving the roadway efficiency and pedestrian infrastructure.
  • FY 2022 Riverside Drive Westbound Reconstruction from Arnett Boulevard to Audubon Drive. ($725,000/$1,450,000). The project will remove existing concrete base and rebuild the road section. This will result in less future maintenance of the corridor and better pavement reliability. 
  • FY 2022 Intersection Improvements at South Main Street and Stokes Street. ($400,000/$800,000). This project would improve the efficiency of the intersection and provide better pedestrian facilities to cross South Main / Stokes Street. This intersection is utilized by emergency vehicles going to the emergency room.
