East La Vista, located east of 72nd Street between Harrison Street and Thompson Creek, is a 67-acre residential subdivision that was constructed in 1959 and 1960. The goal of this project is to:
- Evaluate the existing streets and sanitary sewers throughout the neighborhood
- Extend the service life of the sewer and paving systems an additional 50 years
- Prepare final design documents of the repairs
- Bid final design documents and construct/install the recommendations
The goal of this project is to rehabilitate the neighborhood’s aging sanitary sewer infrastructure. In most segments of the neighborhood’s sanitary sewer pipes, there is cracking and root infiltration, in addition to joint failure and sewer laterals punched through the sewer main.
The neighborhood’s original concrete pavement may not have been initially constructed at a thickness that would meet current residential street requirements. An asphalt overlay was placed on the pavement approximately 20 years ago to improve the street condition. The asphalt overlay shows various levels of cracking throughout all the streets in the neighborhood. Upon completion of construction, affected streets will be given adequate pavement thickness and curb height, and all streets in the project area will receive a new asphalt overlay.
There are also curb ramps for the sidewalks throughout the neighborhood, but they are not to current ADA standards and requirements. Upon completion of construction, ADA-compliant curb ramps will be installed throughout the neighborhood.
