The City of Cottonwood is finally accepting bids for improvements to 10th Street between Mingus and Main Streets. The road project has been in planning since 2011 and is a selected Cottonwood project to be funded by a federal Community Development Block Grant.

The 10th Street improvements are intended to resolve a number of issues on the small connector street, which often is used as a high-speed short cut between two major collector roads. At the same time, the road serves a lot of pedestrian traffic including young school children, despite the lack of sidewalks at the side of the roadway.

In addition to upgrading the pavement, the project will build 5-foot wide sidewalks on both sides of the roadway and resolve a flooding issue for the extension of Railroad Wash.

Development Services Manager Dan Lueder said the 1500-foot long project was originally estimated to cost $540,000 and the department worked to cut back the costs. One savings will have Cottonwood will upgrade a water line separately through the area from the road re-construction.

The CDGB grant provides only $230,000. The City will pick up the difference between the grant and contract, which is now estimated at $400,000.

Bids are due by July 19 with the project expected to get under way within 30 days.

Lueder said construction will wrap up in 90 days. "It doesn't involve a lot of trenching and digging." He says they want to get the paving completed while the weather is still warm.

Article comment by: How about Busier 12th Steert?

10th street has a fraction of the traffic that 12th has. Now we do not begrudge them getting their street done.... But the city has been promising 12th street since 2010! A few month ago they said it was coming in early 2013. Another over promise and under deliver job by Lueder.
