5-Year Capital Improvement Program
In 2016 the Department of Public Works developed a 5-Year Capital Improvement Plan. This is mainly a data driven plan that prioritizes our street reconstruction, rehabilitation and resurfacing projects over the next 5 years.
The approved 2018 5-year Capital Improvement Plan, as well as projects planned for 2019-2022, are proposed by the Department of Public Works to be reviewed and adopted annually by City Council for funding. All information provided for 2019-2022 is preliminary and subject to change.
List of data and parameters considered when developing the 5-Year capital plan:
- Pavement Condition Index (PCI)
- Traffic Volumes
- Maintenance History (Demand and Cost)
- Age of the Roadway
- Identified in a Small Area Plan
- Planned Bicycle Facilities
- Safety Concerns
- Utility Work needing to be done (Xcel, Water, Gas, District Energy)
- Other Infrastructure Already In-Place (ie. Curb, Street Lighting)
Having a 5-Year Capital Plan is a best practice in many local, county and state governments. The 5-Year Capital Plan will result in better coordination, planning and will provide a clear understanding of the scope, timeline and implementation for projects.
Key elements of the 5-Year Capital Plan:
- Updated and Approved Annually
- Identifies Year for Project Work
- Ensures Capital Construction Citywide
- Improved communications with the public on what streets will be improved and how we are improving them
- Better coordination and planning amongst all stakeholders resulting in a more thorough and comprehensive design
