    Let's reduce the radius at street intersections to about 8 feet instead of the wide turns at about 32 feet currently used on 58th street. It would slow traffic speeds considerably at the corners...and yes the trash trucks would need to be careful but they seem to navigate the Minneapolis corners.

    John Hamilton asked 2 months ago

    Thank you for your comment.  Our local street intersections are designed with a 20’ radius to accommodate turning movements for passenger vehicles, garbage trucks and school buses.  This allows vehicles to make the turn without entering the oncoming lane of traffic or jumping the curb and damaging lawns.

    Who do I contact if I need handicapped accessibility during road work?

    Gail Moll asked 3 months ago

    Thanks for the question.   

    Please reach out to coordinate access with our field inspector in the spring just prior to construction beginning.  We’ll mail a letter after the construction contract has been awarded by the Council.  That letter will include our field inspector’s contact information.  Or feel free to contact me directly. 

    Thank you,

    Would it be possible to lay conduit for dark fiber optic cables while these roads are reconstructed? It would make it easier in the future to provide "fiber to the home" internet to homes, especially those in areas with underground utilities, while the roads are being torn up.

    mtdoyle asked 4 months ago

    Good question.  Not necessarily.  Fiber optic conduit can be installed in the future by trenchless horizontal directional drill method with minimal disruption to the street pavement, turf boulevards, or other infrastructure in the right of way.  

    Thank you,
