Juliette Avenue Brick Rehabilitation

Project Description


Phase 1: The Juliette Avenue brick street from Bluemont Avenue south through the intersection of Laramie Street will be rehabilitated. The unevenness of the street will be addressed; curb and gutter repaired where necessary; undersized storm inlets replaced; and intersections at Moro and Laramie replaced with concrete. Bricks will be salvaged from the intersections to replace damaged bricks along the length of the project area.

Phase 2: The second phase of this project continues brick street rehabilitation on Juliette Avenue from Laramie Street to Osage Street.
