Yes. Grimes Street will receive new curb and gutter and a storm sewer pipe, which will carry water down Anna Street to be dumped into the ditch by McPherson High School. Plans also include widening Grimes Street during the reconstruction process.
Once reconstructed, it is anticipated Grimes Street will have an increase in traffic and the City will analyze traffic flow to determine if additional stop signs are needed.
Two separate projects are under construction along North High Drive. The first project replaces lift station #4 with the new lift station being placed on McPherson High School property. The second project is a new sewer line located in the alley between Myers Street and Barber Street. The line runs from Anna Street to Loomis Street and ties into the sewer along North High Drive.
Work along Walnut Street from First Street to National Street will include curb and gutter repairs, roadway milling and patching and a two-inch asphalt overlay.
Walnut Street will be milled and overlaid from First Street to National Street.
The street department has numerous small projects on the list to complete, which includes repairing potholes.
Upcoming projects include Walnut Street (mill patch and overlay); North Front Street (reconstruction from McDonald’s to Champlin Street); South Front Street (mill, patch and overlay); Hartup Street (total reconstruction from Kansas Avenue to First Street) and Elizabeth Street (total reconstruction from Hartup Street to Park Street). If the sales tax passes, the City will have completed all eight quadrant-selected projects and many more.
