E. Theater Lane Construction

East Theater Lane between N.E. 8th and N.E. 10th Streets.

DESCRIPTION

PROJECT ID: ST 3.0
ESTIMATED COST: $630,000
ACTUAL COST: TBD
  • Replaces gravel road between N.E. 8th and N.E. 10th streets with asphalt.
  • Current sidewalks will meet ADA standards
  • Centerline stripes and crosswalks will be added
  • Work will be coordinated with water, sewer and outside utilities to make sure work is done concurrently

WHY IT’S NEEDED

E. Theater Lane accesses property where a new elementary school will be located, as well as new residential neighborhoods. This project will meet near future transportation needs of the city.

The paving of Theater Lane’s travel lanes creates an incentive for other potential private sector developers by reducing the cost to connect to the road and sidewalks.

The paving project, combined with water system upgrades in the area, has already attracted private development in the Cimmaron Terrace subdivision.  As a result of that private development, city staff worked to also coordinate a public-private partnership between the City, the developer, and the Hermiston School District, to ensure that sewer services were extended at the same time as the paving.
