2016 Project List

RIVER PRAIRIE NORTHWEST QUADRANT – PHASE 3
The next step in development of the northwest quadrant of River Prairie will include completion of Front Porch Place (the Main Street area) and development of the public areas.

MANOR COURT RECONSTRUCTION
Manor Court is in very poor condition. Improvements will consist of water service replacement, storm sewer, curb and gutter, crushed aggregate base course, new pavement, and lawn restoration.

RIVER PRAIRIE NORTHWEST TRAIL
The city received a grant from the Wisconsin Department of Transportation to expand its network of multi-use paths. A trail will be extended through an existing conservation easement and through city property along the Eau Claire River. This trail will be an important link to the ongoing development in the northwest quadrant of River Prairie, as well as a connection to other local and regional trails.

KEWIN STREET RECONSTRUCTION
The deteriorated section of Kewin Street (from Park Road to the section repaved in 2010) will be reconstructed. This will include asphaltic concrete pavement and may include curb and gutter and storm sewer.

SHERMAN HIGHLANDS WATER MAIN LOOP
The neighborhood known as "The Addition" is supplied with water by one water main. Installation of a second main will provide redundancy in the event of a break and needed circulation.

WOODMAN DRIVE EXTENSION
Woodman Drive will be extended westward from Blazing Star Boulevard to provide access to city-owned commercial property.

HILLSIDE DRIVE OVERLAY
Hillside Drive, from 10th Street West to the east, has deteriorated. This segment will receive an asphaltic pavement overlay, which will delay the point at which a full utility and roadway reconstruction will be necessary.
