Project Description

Alleys offer important access for residents to the rear of their property and parking of their vehicles. The city’s alley reconstruction program started in 2018 as part of an effort to rebuild 142 miles of alleyway throughout the city. Alley reconstruction includes removal of existing driving surface, alley approaches, and adjustment or replacement of casting. Since 2018, Public Works has reconstructed 14 miles of alleys.

What to Expect During Construction

Residents will receive notification letters in the mail informing them that the alley they live on has been selected for reconstruction once the alley project has been awarded to a contractor. Residents will receive a second letter on their door approximately one to two days before the start of construction on their alleyways. During construction, your garbage and recycling service will be moved from the alley to the curb. Please set your garbage/recycling carts at the curb before 6 a.m. on your normal pick-up day. For questions about garbage/recycling collection, please call 427-2474.
