Independence Street Repair Has Begun

Independence, Iowa…Major repair and replacement of City streets has been long overdue. In 2011, the City contracted with Iowa State University, Center for Transportation Research and Education (CTRE) to inventory the conditions of our streets. In Council committee and full Council session, the City determined it necessary to move forward with major repair and replacement. The program is estimated to have a 5 to 10 year timeline.  Funding will be through the general fund, assessments, and general obligation bonding, with grants and other collaborations where possible to establish an on-going repair and replace program for the future.

The City posted Request for Proposal notices, received four offers, conducted interviews of the applying firms and selected Veenstra & Kimm, Inc. (V & K) to complete the engineering for this project.

V & K, using the CTRE data and after several months of on the ground work established the Street Rehabilitation Program identifying 110 street and 37 storm sewer relatively immediate projects with an estimated cost of $10.8 million. The street projects fall into four categories; Hot Mix Asphalt (HMA) Overlay, Mill & HMA Overlay, Portland Cement Concrete (PCC) Full Depth Patching, and PCC Full Construction.

In its planning the City decided to first complete those portions of our streets needing only repair, 35 projects in all were identified, with HMA overlay or milling and overlay with HMA. There will be some Storm Sewer repair or replacement as well. This is Phase I – consisting of the Mill and / or HMA Overlay & Storm Sewer projects. Tschiggfrie Excavating is our general contractor for Phase I and began work along with City crews this past week.

The following are projects under Phase I, all have a completion date of October 31, 2014. The map shows the where work is or will begin
