CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS STATUS - Updated July 11, 2017

Caswell Park Storage Building Project
With the increasing duties of our ballfield and park maintenance crew, along with the loss of storage facilities previously available at Parks and Recreation's former space at 5th Avenue, we are now faced with the need for a suitable replacement. Brownlee Construction, Inc. provided the winning bid for constructing the maintenance storage building at Caswell Park, near Ridley-Helton field.  The project will construct a 36’ x 48’ metal storage building at Caswell Park.

Cumberland Avenue Streetscapes Phase I & II Project
The Streetscape Plan proposes a "road diet" for Cumberland reducing the street from four lanes to three lanes with a median to direct left turn movements. In the spring of 2013, the City working with stakeholders and with Council approval, split the project into two phases.  Phase I includes improvements to Cumberland Avenue from Alcoa Highway to 22nd Street. The primary objective of Phase I is to address the utilities, roadway capacity, turn lanes, signals, and sidewalks in preparation of Phase II.  Phase II includes improvements to Cumberland Avenue from 22nd Street to west of 16th Street. This phase will include underground utilities (tie to Phase I work) narrowing of Cumberland Avenue from four lanes to three lanes, one of which will be a dedicated median/turn lane, widening sidewalks, adding street trees, plantings and street furniture, accommodations for transit and transit users, and new cross walks.
