Carson City Public Works is evaluating five major road projects for fiscal year 2021.
The department now divides the city into five construction zones and focuses on a single area each year to maximize efficiencies.
In 2021, the department is working in the district comprising all of east Carson City south of Highway 50 East.
The department has $908,811 available from the Regional Transportation Commission Transportation Infrastructure Fund to spend on the projects.
The highest priority is a rehabilitation project on 5th Street from Fairview Drive to Marsh Road costing an estimated $619,000.
That leaves about $289,000 for four possible preservation projects: Deer Run Road between U.S. 50 and a half mile north of Sedge Road for an estimated cost if $170,000; Old Clear Creek Road between U.S. 395 and Vista Grande, $55,000; Vista Grande Boulevard between Old Clear Creek and Douglas County incorporating Lompa Lane between U.S. 50 and Menlo Drive,$37,000; and Snyder Avenue between Bigelow Drive and Center Drive, $27,000.
The department usually holds a public meeting of its Transportation Resource Advisory Forum for Carson City, a citizens panel, to go over options for road work but is soliciting comment via email instead due to the ongoing public health emergency.
