The Poet Streets are bounded by Park Lane to the north, Poly Drive to the south, Highwood Drive to the West and Virginia Lane to the east.
PROJECT VICINITY MAP
Streets included in the project are:
|Highland Park Drive||Longfellow Place||Whittier Place||Raymond Place|
|Woodland Drive||Irving Place||Emerson Place|
The Poet Streets are severely deteriorated because they do not have curbing and storm drainage which will bound the asphalt edges preventing unraveling and manage the water which can undermine the substrate.
The City has worked with the neighborhood to develop a solution which will fix the current roads, provide the curbing required to prevent premature failure in the future, and keep the character of the neighborhood:
Askin Construction LLC was awarded both the early release package for installation of new storm drain inlets on Woodland Drive as well as the general contract for the construction of curbing and street overlay.
The Woodland Drive storm drain work is expected to start March 26, 2018 and will be completed by mid-April 2018.
The curbing and overlay work is expected to start April 2, 2018 and will be completed by the end of August 2018.
