CDBG Grant Public Works/Project Description

The City of Coatesville proposes three projects to restore and improve portions of the city’s vital infrastructure, supporting pedestrian safety, accessibility, and community revitalization.  A CDBG grant application is being submitted for the following projects and locations within the City:

 

Project 1:

Diamond St. from 2nd to 4th Avenue, Chestnut St. from 1st to 4th Avenue, Fleetwood St from 2nd to 3rd Avenue and 2nd Avenue from Lincoln to Fleetwood.

  1. Diamond St. from 2nd to 4th Avenue: Replace deteriorated drainage facilities, pave the road surface, update Accessible Ramps and install crosswalks
  2. Chestnut St. from 1st to 4th Avenue: Remove and replace deteriorated sidewalk and curb to enhance pedestrian safety and community appearance.  Update Accessible Ramps and crosswalks, replace failed drainage facilities as needed, pave street.
  3. Fleetwood St from 2nd to 3rd Avenue: Remove and replace deteriorated sidewalk and curb to enhance pedestrian safety and community appearance.  Update Accessible Ramps and crosswalks, replace failed drainage facilities as needed, pave street.
  4. 2nd Avenue from Lincoln to Fleetwood: Remove and replace deteriorated sidewalk and curb, including addition of street trees, to enhance pedestrian safety and improve streetscape.  Update Accessible Ramps and crosswalks, replace deteriorated drainage facilities as needed, pave street.

Project 2:

Ash Park, the North side of Lincoln Highway in front of the Flats, and the south side of Lincoln Highway toward Church Street.

  1. Ash Park:  Replace broken and uneven sections of sidewalk and curb around the Park perimeter to enhance pedestrian safety and community appearance.  Update Accessible Ramps and crosswalks.
  2. On the North Side of Lincoln Highway:  West of 1st Avenue (Route 82), in the vicinity of the summer splash pad, remove and replace approximately 650 LF of deteriorated sidewalk and curb.  Incorporate street trees in the renovation to beautify, absorb storm water runoff and provide shade along the pedestrian paths.    Update Accessible Ramps and crosswalks, replace deteriorated drainage facilities as needed.  This work will enhance pedestrian safety and improve the streetscape.
  3. On the South Side of Lincoln Highway, replace approximately 300 linear feet of sidewalk and curb east of Church Street that is in poor condition.

Project 3:

Repair or replacement of an existing sanitary sewer line.  Residents and property owners along Walnut Street are complaining of sewage backing up into dwellings.  The City believes there may be a sag, break or obstruction in the line causing this problem.  This project proposes to resolve the problems experienced by these residents.

Once funded, the problem can be further evaluated with video inspection, and bid documents issued for necessary work to resolve the blockages.
