Each year the roadway segments that are in the most need of repair throughout the City are reconstructed as a portion of the City of Andover's street reconstruction program. The street reconstruction projects are identified in the City's Capital Improvement Plan. Scheduled for reconstruction in 2023 is the Oak Bluff development generally located along 148th Lane and Bluebird Street east of Hanson Boulevard (see attached location map).

The project will consist of reclaiming the existing bituminous roadway, shaping the existing gravel, constructing concrete curb and gutter, minor storm sewer improvements / repairs, and constructing a new bituminous surface. A short segment of water main and sanitary sewer will also be constructed between Eagle Street and Bluebird Street.

The project will be funded from the City's Road & Bridge Fund, with 25% of the total street related project costs assessed to the benefiting properties as identified in the City's Roadway Reconstruction Assessment Policy.

A neighborhood meeting was held with affected residents in the summer of 2022. We anticipate that construction will begin in late April / early May of 2023, with the project being completed by late summer 2023.
