The Department of Public Works 5-Year Capital Plan is mainly a data driven plan that prioritizes our street reconstruction, rehabilitation, resurfacing and sewer projects over the next five years.
The 2020 5-Year Capital Plan shows projects approved for 2020, as well as projects planned for 2020-2024. The 5-Year Plan is proposed by the Department of Public Works to be reviewed and adopted annually by City Council. All information provided for 2020-2024 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 among all stakeholders resulting in a more thorough and comprehensive design
