The City of Noblesville has announced a series of street rehabilitation projects, something city officials say is a direct result of the implementation of a trash fee.

This year’s list, which the city is calling “Making Moves,” totals approximately $2 million and has expanded, increasing approximately $500,000 over total spending in 2015. The projects are aimed at address what the city deems “the most necessary infrastructure needs within the city.”

“Noblesville’s Making Moves road-repaving and sidewalk-repair project for this summer is an intensified street rehabilitation effort funded by the revenues the city is able to capture from the recent change in the trash ordinance,” Noblesville Mayor John Ditslear said.

City Engineer John Beery said the trash ordinance change equates to approximately 25 percent more work being done to streets, sidewalks and alleys than previously planned.

“Over the past year, we have completely inventoried and reviewed the conditions of all our streets and alleys,” Beery stated. “Once each road is evaluated and graded, a street rehabilitation list is made based on priority and grouping the work to be the most efficient with our budget. We make every effort to address the areas that are most in need.”

The Noblesville Engineering Dept. has awarded three contracts for infrastructure work throughout the city. Resurfacing projects include South Ninth Street, Pebble Brook Village, South Harbour, East Harbour, Lakecrest, Morse Lake Estates, 196th Street, Hague Road and Carrigan Road.

Other projects include the replacement of sidewalks in the Southwest Quadrant. Concrete sidewalk installation on Little Chicago Road, north of Carrigan Road; Allisonville Road, north of Field Drive to Fairfield Farms; and on Maple Street in front of the Public Safety Building, along with alley approaches in Old Town.

The fourth project will involve alley paving in Old Town. Beery said although final locations are still pending, it is expected that alley paving locations will be in the same general areas in which alley approaches are being replaced.

Construction is expected to begin after the Fourth of July holiday. Signs will be placed on-site approximately one week before construction begins, and mailings will be sent to affected homeowners.

City officials say this construction will cause minor inconveniences including traffic delays, temporary loss of street parking, construction noise and access restrictions.

“Funds that are now available to the city have been dedicated to improving the downtown infrastructure and tree replacement program, increasing support of law enforcement and their crime prevention efforts, intensifying funding of road repaving and sidewalk repair throughout the city and replenishing the County Option Income Tax fund,” a press release from the city stated.

Project status and updates will be reported via the city’s social media feeds. For more, contact the Noblesville Engineering Dept. at 317-776-6330.
