Project Description

Kasold Drive, from 31st Street to Clinton Parkway, is a failing arterial street carrying 15,000+ vehicles a day. This street section contains sidewalks, recreational path, stormsewer, and a water main all in good condition. We anticipate saving as much of these improvements as practical. The pavement will be replaced with 10" concrete and the sidewalk and recreational path will be connected around the curve to 31st Street to provide a continuous pedestrian and bike facility. The need for turn lanes and medians will be reviewed during the design process. Traffic control will probably be the most significant issue as several neighborhoods have only a single exit access onto Kasold.

Construction Cost

This project as compared to Kasold from Bob Billings Parkway (BBP) to 22nd Street does not include the waterline replacement or retaining wall or multiuse path construction. However this project contains approximately 2000 linear feet (at 55 feet wide) of additional pavement, 1000 feet of multiuse path, 1500 feet of sidewalk, and approximately 1000 linear feet of additional storm sewer. This comparison provides a preliminary estimate of the Kasold, 23rd Street to 31st Street of approximately $5.5 million.
