City engineers discuss road projects funded by community crossings grant

To a local shelter.

Drivers can expect smoother roads in a few different parts of terre haute by the end of next summer.

We told you at five... that a community crossings grant is helping to pay for "4" road projects this year.

The grant is worth more than "8" hundred thousand dollars.

This is a "50" "50" matching grant..

That means the city must match the state money.

News 10's tilly marlatt spoke with city engineers today.

Tonight... she breaks down how they determine which projects to consider for the grant.

The community crossings grant will help the city rebuild roadways in four different parts of the community this spring.

Assistant city engineer marcus maurer shares how the engineering department decides which projects to focus on.

"we do have a ratings system of all the pavement in the city.

We start with that and we've also got a five year plan that goes along with that rating system.

We start picking projects off of that and beyond that we start picking projects that extra fifty percent would help the most.

Crews will work on wabash avenue from 10th and a half street to 13th street.

They'll also work on crawford street from 13th street to 19th street.

"the crawford job and the wabash job would get rid of the old interurban railroad ties here in the last five or six years have started decaying and they end up with a lot of washboard effect on the road."

A full reconstruction will be done on 13th street from fort harrison road to haythorne avenue.

Crews will also repave prairieton road from the south side of the city's wastewater treatment facility south to lombardi drive.

"probably look to start seeing work start around march or april.

It's a 150 day project overall for all of the work.

So they should be all done by mid-summer."

Officials say drivers should expect road closures in the process.
