Description: Planning, design, and construction of a new eastern extension of Church Street roadway to connect Church Street between the Railyard Development to a new intersection with Glenshire Drive just west of the Rock and Rose. The Project includes a new bridge over Trout Creek with restoration to a portion of the creek upstream and downstream of the new bridge. The new intersection with Glenshire Drive would be configured as a roundabout.  The Trout Creek Restoration Project would restore Trout Creek upstream of the new bridge to upstream of the balloon track.  The restored creek would provide 100 year flood protection and improve aquatic plus riparian habitat.  Both projects would occur concurrently.
Status: Preliminary planning and a  30% level design was completed in July 2018. A second design phase has started and will refine the design plans from the 30% design level to 100% (final design) level likely occurring before May of 2021 and would include environmental permitting and preparation of construction plans, specifications, and cost estimates. Staff is currently applying for stream restoration grant funds to cover the construction cost of the steam restoration work.

Construction: Tentatively planned for the 2021 Construction Season.
