Powell Street Reconstruction

Project Description

This project's objective is to reconstruct a portion of Powell Street, specifically the block between S. Kelsey Street and S. Sams Street. This segment has a poor pavement condition and localized stormwater ponding issues. 

The City looks to capitalize on full pavement depth reconstruction projects such as this by researching the existing underground utilities and determining if they are candidates for replacement due to age or maintenance issues. As such, an existing water main will also be replaced.

Another opportunity exists at the intersection with S. Sams Street. The current layout has Powell street "jogging" through the intersection, which is not ideal for traffic operations.

Project Open House and Opinion Survey
The City is looking at options to improve this intersection and invite you to participate in an online survey and virtual open house presentation. Please use the following links to participate in these events:

Project Updates


April 29, 2021

City has a survey link above seeking public input on alternate configurations for the intersection of Sams St. and Powell St.  Please review the Design Alternatives before taking the Opinion Survey.  You may find it beneficial to have both open at once.  This project is still in the Scoping phase.
