Milford City Council Reviews Proposed Street/Road Projects For Next 5 To 6 Years

Tue 3-28-2017

(Milford)-- A review of the city's road and street projects over the next 5 to 6 years was a highlight of Monday evening's Milford City Council meeting.

Three major projects are on the docket. First on the list is the final phase of re-building “H” Avenue from 10th Street to 13th Street. The project has an estimated cost of $1.7 million. The city plans to apply for grant funds to help offset atleast $600,000 of that. Construction is set for the spring of 2019.

The second major project making the list is the re-construction of “P” Avenue between 13th and 21st Streets at an estimated cost of $1.7 million. That project is slated for 2021.

The other project on the list is a major re-construction of County Road A-34 from Okoboji avenue, or Highway 71, to the west city limits. It will be done as a partnership with the county and will include storm and sanitary sewer replacement, grading and paving. Roughly 50 percent of the estimated $1.8 million cost would be covered by outside funds. Construction on that project is tentatively set for 2023.

While no formal action was taken last (Mon.) evening regarding the proposed projects, the city council did authorize Mayor Bill Reinsbach to meet with Milford Municipal Utilities to update that entity on what's being considered.
