About the Project
- Completion of missing concrete curb, gutter and sidewalk along the south side of the street.
- New concrete sidewalk width will vary from 4’ to 5’, depending on where sidewalk narrowing is needed to protect the roots of adjacent mature, healthy trees.
- Street width will be narrowed in some areas to 30’-0” from the existing 36’-0” where concrete curb and gutter exists on both sides of the street, to minimize impacts to adjacent mature, healthy trees.
- On street parking will be retained on both sides, except where prohibited by the County’s traffic ordinance.
- Minimal disturbance to the area within County DES, DPR and NVRPA land ownership.
- County standard LED Carlyle-streetlights to be installed along 9th Street S.
