About the Project 

This is a locally funded milling and resurfacing project with two street segments (Chestnut St. and East Ave.) located in the Center City/Southwest Quadrant and two additional street segments (N. Goodman St. from Peck St. to Bay St. and from Clifford St. to the City Line) located in the northernmost section of the Southeast Quadrant. This design project will include the preparation of engineering studies / reports and construction contract documents for improvements to the minor arterials (Chestnut St. and East Ave) and principal arterial (N. Goodman St) street that comprise the project.  

Project Description 

The project includes milling and resurfacing of four street segments: 
Chestnut Street from E. Broad St to E. Main St.
East Avenue from E. Main St to Alexander St.
N. Goodman Street from Peck St. to Bay St.
N. Goodman Street from Clifford St. to the City Line
Street improvements will include spot curb replacement, spot sidewalk replacements, curb ramps, adjustment / replacement of valve box frames and covers, storm / sewer manhole frames and covers, catch basin frames and grates, installation of concrete collars, and powder coating of existing street light and traffic poles. The project will also include the evaluation of multilane conversions (road diets) on Chestnut St. and East Ave for bike lanes, and potential parking changes, evaluation of new bump-outs on N. Goodman St at the Perkins St marked crosswalk, and the evaluation of a midblock crossing on East Ave near Swan St.
