Projects and Grants

For Information Regarding Projects and Grants that are being administered by the Public Works Department

There are three categories of projects - proposed/planned, in progress and complete.

We have listed in progress projects first. Proposed/Planned projects second and complete projects last.

Projects and construction are budget dependent.


Projects In Progress: Residents should expect delays in project areas and use detour routes when possible. All projects are weather dependent.  Project completion dates are estimates if everything goes according to plan.

See Road Updates

Other work - drainage(replacement of catch basin tops, replacement/install of pipe and install of catch basins, reclaimation of roadway, excavation of shoulder for stabilization, grading, paving, curbing, driveway aprons, and paint markings as required. We take the preservation of trees seriously. Trees being considered for removal are flagged with green tape, then posted for ten days and then marked for removal. Typically, trees are only removed for safety reasons - sightline or clear zone, but they should be removed to protect the edge of new and existing pavement and allow drainage installation where the roots would be effected or for the safety of workers during trenching or basin installation
