5 - JONES ROAD WATER MAIN REPLACEMENT Project
6 - WILSON STREET RESTORATION
The Basin 3 Sewer Rehabilitation Project will replace old, failing sewer system infrastructure that has deteriorated beyond the point of repair in the northern section of the downtown area. These improvements will eliminate current inflow and infiltration issues, increase the wastewater management system capacity allowing for additional service connections on the existing system, and reduce the city’s operating costs and energy consumption by reducing the amount of unnecessary inflow and infiltration that is treated at the wastewater treatment plant.
The Downtown Connector Project includes the complete revitalization of the West Alder Street/Olympic Highway North corridor – North 1st Street to West C Street. The estimated $4.4 million dollar project will feature new asphalt streets, sidewalks, streetscapes, street and pedestrian lighting, ADA ramps, stormwater upgrades, and intersection improvements, including the first roundabout in Shelton. The West Alder Street/Olympic Highway North corridor is a principal arterial and National Highway System Route connecting downtown Shelton to the city’s northern commercial and residential districts.
Turner Avenue revitalization Project
The Turner Avenue Revitalization Project features a series of upgrades to the stormwater system, including new storm lines, storm structures and the complete resurfacing on the roadway between East Angleside Road and South 16th Street. This will imporve stormwater runoff managment, and prevent unwanted and costly erosion problems.
C Street Landfill Cleanup
The C Street Landfill is just west of downtown Shelton and U.S. Highway 101. The Landfill was actively used as a dumping site for various industrial, municipal, and other waste for much of the 1900s. The City of Shelton is currently working with the State of Washington Department of Ecology to investigate and cleanup the site.
JONES ROAD WATER MAIN REPLACEMENT Project
The Jones Road Water Main Replacement Project will replace approximately 1,640 feet of water main that services nine residential connections on SE Jones Road between Dickinson Avenue and SE Arcadia Road. The existing 6" Asbestos Concrete (AC) water main is currently in a state of deterioration. The new line will be upgraded to 8" PVC piping, which will provide significant increases to the system service capacity and fire flow.
WILSON STREET RESTORATION
The Wilson Street Restoration Project features a series of roadway upgrades on East Wilson Street between South First Street and Steven Street, including the installation of approximately 12,100 square feet of new pavement, widening the road to the city right-of-way boundary, adding several stormwater drainage system improvements, and the installation of new water and sewer utility stub outs to a number of vacant lots.
Paving 20 residential blocks
In accordance with our commitment to improve and maintain the City’s aging infrastructure, the Public Works Department is currently working on some of the largest infrastructure improvement projects undertaken by the City in recent years, including the Downtown Connector Project and the Basin 3 Sewer Rehabilitation Project. While leveraging the City transportation funds as “match money” on these larger grant funded arterial projects is an excellent way to make your tax dollars go further, we also recognize the need to make regular improvements on the City’s growing network of residential streets.
As we continue to seek out grant funding opportunities to revitalize major arterials, the City has committed to paving approximately 20 residential blocks every year. Currently, a road rating system is being developed by the Public Works Department to prioritize when residential streets throughout the city will be paved and/or repaved.
Streets scheduled for paving in 2018 are highlighted on the map below:
