Staff from Carson City Public Works and Q&D Construction would like to thank those who attended last night’s Curry Street Pre-Construction presentation. All the feedback received was recorded and is noted. Below is the presentation provided by City Engineer Dan Stucky.
Further Downtown Revitalization with the Downtown Curry Streetscape Project- Coming Spring/Summer 2018
The downtown corridor improvements broke ground March 7, 2016 and within only eight months of construction Carson Street received major water and sewer utility replacement. In addition, the improvements enabled accessibility to all user types, and enhanced the downtown charm to encourage tourism. The downtown corridor improvements will extend to Curry Street from Musser Street to Robinson Street, as well as beatification improvements for five east-west downtown streets between Carson Street and Curry Street. The Curry Street construction meeting will be on March 22, at 6:00 p.m. in the Carson City Sheriff’s Office Ormsby Room. This meeting welcomes residents and business owners.
The Revitalization of the Downtown Carson City corridor continues this spring with the construction of Downtown Curry Streetscape Project. The project includes major utility and streetscape improvements along Curry Street from Musser Street to Robinson Street, as well as beatification improvements for five east-west downtown streets between Carson Street and Curry Street (Robinson Street, Spear Street, Telegraph Street, Proctor Street and Musser Street) and the Telegraph to Spear alley.
Project improvements include replacement of aging water, sewer and storm drain infrastructure, pavement rehabilitation, wider concrete/paver sidewalks, energy efficient LED street lights, undergrounding of overhead power lines, landscaping, urban street furnishings, and other streetscape amenities. The improvements will expand upon the Downtown Carson Street improvements, completed in 2016, further creating a redefined urban complete streets corridor.
The project design team is working on the design anticipated to be completed in early March 2018 with construction starting by the end of April or beginning of May, this year. Project updates to the Board of Supervisors, Redevelopment Authority Citizens Committee (RACC) and the Regional Transportation Commission (RTC) are planned for February 2018.
