5-Year Capital Improvement Program

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 2019 5-Year Capital Plan shows projects approved for 2019, as well as projects planned for 2020-2023. 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 2020-2023 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

Expected Results:

  • 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
