DEPARTMENT: Public Works

 

CONTACT INFORMATION: Ben Schmadeke, 919-918-7424, bschmadeke@townofcarrboro.org <mailto:bschmadeke@townofcarrboro.org>; Joe Guckavan, 919-918-7427, jguckavan@townofcarrboro.org <mailto:jguckavan@townofcarrboro.org>

 

INFORMATION: Roberts Street has unique access and maintenance issues due to the 15% grade at the entrance and the gravel surface.  Public Works has previously attempted to make improvements to the roadway which have not completely solved the existing problems.  Full improvements up the hill to the first driveway are recommended to correct maintenance issues and ensure emergency and solid waste vehicle access.  Town Staff have received a preliminary design and cost estimates from the Town Engineer for the Roberts Street improvements.

 

FISCAL & STAFF IMPACT:  The preliminary engineering work completed to date estimates that Town supported improvements up to the first driveway and the “T” Turn-Around will be $144,300.00.  The Town has incurred $7,946.00 in engineering fees to date for surveying and preliminary design work.  Current policy would require the costs for paving the remainder of the street (currently estimated at $68,200.00) to be shared (50/50) between the Town and residents.  There will be staff impact associated with project management.

 

RECOMMENDATION:r It is recommended that the Council approve the attached resolution.
