Infrastructure Improvement Projects

South K Street Reconstruction

Project Location: South K Street from West 2nd Avenue (Iowa 92) to West 17th Avenue.

Project Description: This future project proposes to replace the existing gravel road with a paved street consisting of 31’ wide PCC pavement.  The project also plans to include a 10’ wide shared use path along one side of the road, streetlight replacement, and the addition of trees along the shared use path.

This proposed project on South K Street is an important link to developing areas and the rural farm to market system. South K Street is an existing unpaved collector street that provides an opportunity to improve surface condition, eliminate dust, and improve drainage performance by paving an existing gravel. The street will be upgraded from an unpaved gravel surface to a concrete pavement surface that improves traffic operations, increases access and mobility, and reduces response time for police and fire protection. It will also improve drainage through storm sewers and improved culverts. This project includes a shared use path with new trees that not only improves pedestrian and bicycle accessibility by facilitating multiple modes of transportation, but it also reduces carbon emissions.

The funding for this project is included in the Capital Improvement Plan for FY2023, FY2024, FY2025, and FY2026 Street Capital Project Fund (Fund 321) for a total amount of $7,844,000.
