2021 Infrastructure Improvement Project

At the July 27 Council meeting, the City of New Hope approved the preparation of a feasibility study to complete street improvements in 2021. A map of the affected streets is attached at the link below or can be viewed in the image finder below. 

 

The project map identifies streets in orange as proposed “reclaim and overlay” roadways. This type of road improvement involves removing the entire pavement section of the roadway down to the gravel base. Roadways will remain gravel, typically for two to three weeks, while the contractor performs subgrade repairs on the road base. Roadways will then be re-paved with a full new layer of pavement.

The project map identifies streets in green as proposed "mill and overlay" roadways. This type of road improvement involves removing the top layer of pavement. Any subsurface repairs will then occur on the remaining road pavement. Three weeks after the initial pavement removal, roadways will be re-paved with a full new layer of pavement.

The feasibility study for this project was presented at the September 28 Council meeting. The feasibility study as well as the engineer's presentation can be viewed at the links below.



A public hearing will be held at the October 26 Council meeting. This meeting will be held in person and residents are encouraged to submit all questions or comments to the city's project coordinator for submission to the City Council. Council meetings are broadcast live or available for viewing online the day after recording. Please visit the City Council webpage for more information.
