The Hope Street Improvements Project generally consists of constructing roadway, water main replacement and drainage improvements along Hope Street from White Spar Road to Warne Street. Additionally, the water main will be removed and replaced in Warne Street to loop into Hope Street.

Woodson Engineering was selected as the design engineer for this project. The engineering design contract was awarded at the July 14, 2015 City Council meeting.

Woodson Engineering has completed their 60% Design for the Road Improvements. Woodson Engineering and City Staff met with the residents impacted by the project on March 16, 2016 and will consider a revised design concept that will acknowledge the following concerns of the residences: ⢠Preserve all trees to the extent feasible ⢠No sidewalk ⢠Keep road as narrow as possible ⢠Consider Traffic Calming elements in the design ⢠Re-Evaluate Hydrology to determine the feasibility of not focusing all drainage to one location. Consider the adequacy of existing drainage swales. ⢠The use of curbing would be considered for managing drainage only ⢠Consider "rural" nature of neighborhood ⢠Match adjacent existing pavement road widths ⢠Address drainage outfall volumes and velocities to not impact existing drainage facilities.

Based on the residential meeting, these items will be addressed in the 90% design to the extent feasible. The scope of work was recently increased to include replacement of the water main in the area up to White Spar Road and to loop the system around Warne Street. The 90% design plans are scheduled to be completed in the Fall, 2017, at which time another meeting will be set up with the impacted residences.
