                                                                               History of the Project

The 2016 Norman Street Maintenance Bond Program includes Urban Roads Reconstruction Projects.  The next two street projects are the FYE 2017 Lahoma Street from Gray Street to Nebraska Street and FYE 2018 Lahoma Street from Nebraska Street to Hughbert Street. These projects were awarded on March 13, 2018.  The projects were let together to allow continuity of construction and better unit costs for construction items.  The projects were awarded to A-Tech Paving in the amount of $561,799.25 and $376,872.00 respectively. This work consists of reconstruction to widen the road to 26 feet and install curb and gutter to improve drainage.  Existing sidewalks and ramps will be replaced to provide ADA accessibility.  Driveways will be replaced within R/W, and are designed to accommodate future sidewalks meeting ADA requirements. Construction began on March 19, 2018 and is expected to be completed by April 10, 2019.
