Project Basics

Reconstruct 1st Avenue North from Division Street to North 9th Street.

Phase 1 – Survey Phase is now essentially complete including preliminary (30%) design and scope of work.

It was recently decided to split this project from the original single 1.9-mile long project into three separate projects to accommodate phased construction due to funding constraints. The three projects will each replace the driving surface, install new curb and gutter and stormwater improvements, install new sidewalk and ensure ADA compliance, replace on-street parking, and provide new lighting along 1st Avenue North, as well as replace the traffic signal at North 13th Street.

The projects will incorporate local planning and design requirements, as appropriate.

Coordination with downtown organizations, landowners/tenants, and agencies will continue throughout design and construction.
