The South 1st Street Neighborhood Rehabilitation is part of a multi-phase project on the eastern side of Council Bluffs, IA. The neighborhood’s beginnings date back to the turn of the century and it was originally constructed without storm sewers on moderately sloped grades with narrow right-of-ways. Reconstruction included the complete removal and replacement of street, driveway, and sidewalk pavements along with the sanitary sewers to the right-of-way. The project also included the construction of new storm sewers and intakes. The street cross sections and profiles were revised when conditions allowed in order to meet current standards. Construction was phased to maximize resident access to homes and limit the amount of disruption to the neighborhood.
With the exception of geotechnical engineering, Snyder & Associates completed all aspects of the project. Our team recommended phases to break the project area into service basin areas and reasonable construction timelines. Services included evaluation of the neighborhood’s existing drainage and sanitary sewer service areas, development of a concept plan for new storm sewers, preparation of an opinion of probable cost for sanitary sewer reconstruction, storm sewer construction, street and sidewalk reconstruction, construction documents, construction observation, and construction administration.
