The City of Grandview is committed to the upkeep and improvement of its transportation system. The Citizens of Grandview approved a Transportation Sales Tax and a Capital Improvements Sale Tax from which the City dedicates funds each year to its Asphalt Overlay Program, Slurry Seal Program, Sidewalk Repair Program, Curb Repair Program, New Curb Program and New Sidewalk Program. The Annual Programs for the proposed City of Grandview’s 2015 Asphalt Overlay Program, Slurry Seal Program, Sidewalk Repair Program, and the Curb Repair Program have been approved by the Board of Aldermen.
Annual ASPHALT OVERLAY PROGRAM
The asphalt overlay and slurry seal programs work together to keep the city’s streets in a safe, acceptable condition. Our engineers evaluate the city’s street system and then rank streets according to degree of deterioration, traffic volume, and other factors. The public works staff then puts together an annual program for both asphalt overlay and slurry seal balancing the needs of the neighborhood streets, major streets, and the budget.
Typically, construction of the annual Asphalt Overlay Program takes place in June. This two-step process involves first, the removal of excess asphalt on the street by a milling. The second step is placing a new asphalt overlay on the street. On days we are milling and paving, we must prohibit parking. This year’s program is funded at $375,000 by the Transportation Sales Tax Fund.
We are proposing the following street segments be included in the 2015 Asphalt Overlay Program:

|Dead end west of Bennington Ave.

||North 600 ft of Blue Ridge Blvd.
||Blue Ridge Blvd.

|Byars Road Bridge

Annual Slurry Seal Program
Typically, construction of the annual Slurry Seal Program takes place between mid-July and mid-August. On the day slurry is applied to the street, parking is prohibited and the street closed to traffic. The 2015 Slurry Seal Program is funded at $65,000 by the Transportation Sales Tax Fund.
We are proposing the following street segments be included in the 2015 Slurry Seal Program:
||East Frontage Road

Annual SIDEWALK AND CURB REPLACEMENT PROGRAMS
The annual Sidewalk and Curb Replacement Programs involves removing and replacing segments of existing sidewalk or curb at various locations. The program includes areas identified through citizen complaints, and those identified by our staff. A driving force in final selection of places to work is the need to develop an ADA compliant infrastructure. Since this part of the program involves streets that are part of the annual asphalt overlay program, construction typically starts April 1 and is complete by mid-June.
2015 Sidewalk and Curb Repair Program
Annual New Sidewalk and Curb Programs
The proposed 2015 New Curb and Sidewalk Program is composed of the following:
The sidewalk program will provide for the construction of a new 4-foot wide concrete sidewalk at two locations within the City. The locations are:
A. along the north side of 125th Street from 440’ east of Harry Truman Drive to the Candlelite Apartments.
B. along the north and west side of Eastern Court from Byars Road southwest to the existing sidewalk at 14600 Eastern Court.
The sidewalk program will also provide for the construction of a new 5-foot wide, 300 ft long concrete sidewalk along the east side of Blue Ridge Blvd in front of the Truman Farm Home at 12301 Blue Ridge Blvd.
New 2-foot wide concrete curb and gutters will be installed at two locations and will require the reconstruction of driveway apron’s where the curb is placed. The locations are:
A. along the east and west sides of Winchester Avenue from 139th Street to the north side of the 138th Street intersection. This is the first of several projects that will result in the placement of curb on both sides of Winchester Avenue between 137th St and 139th St. The new curb will be 2-foot wide concrete curb and gutter and require the reconstruction, with concrete, of every driveway where the curb is placed.
B. along the east side of Blue Ridge Boulevard within the same limits as the sidewalk installation in front of the Truman Farm Home at 12301 Blue Ridge Blvd. The new curb will be 2-foot wide straight back concrete curb and gutter and require the reconstruction, with concrete, of the driveway entrance to the Truman Farm Home.
Main Street Phase 4 Project
Construction of Phase 4 of the Main Street Revitalization Project is scheduled to take place fall 2015 . This phase of work will be a complicated project that will connect Phase 3 to the West Frontage Road. As with Phase 3, Phase 4 will be funded by a combination of the City’s Capital Improvements Sales Tax and a Federal Highway Administration grant.
