2020 Infrastructure Improvement Project

At the Mar. 23 city council meeting, the New Hope City Council approved the construction contract with Northwest Asphalt, Inc. for the 2020 infrastructure improvement project with a cost of $2.89 million. This amount includes the base project plus 4 alternates that were offered for bid.

The infrastructure improvements are for street improvements in the southern area of New Hope between Hwy 169 and Boone Avenue North and between 36th and 30th avenues. Additionally there are street, water main, sanitary sewer and storm sewer improvements on Northwood Parkway and 36 ½ Circle between Boone and 36th avenues.

The street conditions on Northwood Parkway and 36 ½ Circle, the two streets identified for full reconstruction in the 2019 Pavement Management Plan, are very poor. Additionally, the streets planned for either a mill and overlay or reclaim and overlay in the 2019 Pavement Management Plan have street PRI ratings between poor and failing.

Construction will begin in spring of 2020, as weather allows, and is expected to be substantially completed by fall of this year, with final completion occurring in June of 2021.
