Proposition S Plans & Information
Proposition S Improvements
On April 3, 2018, Manchester voters passed Proposition S, a $16 million bond issue to fund repairs to city streets and sidewalks. Street repair priorities will be determined based on street condition rating ratings established by a street pavement assessment study performed by Horner & Shifrin, Inc. an engineering consulting firm. Streets with lower ratings, thus in poorer condition, will be given higher priority for earliest repair during the life of the improvement program which is anticipated to be a 7 year period.
Sidewalk project work will include reconstruction of sidewalks to meet minimum acceptable standards, slab leveling to eliminate trip hazards and ponding water, new sidewalk construction, and construction of new or replacement ADA compliant curb ramps at street intersections.
The City has now successfully completed the fourth year of the Proposition S Street Improvements Project. There was approximately $3.5 million in project construction completed in 2021. The project’s street improvements include concrete slab replacement, concrete street reconstruction, asphalt street pavement mill and overlays, and asphalt street reconstruction. The project’s sidewalk improvements include concrete slab replacement, concrete slab leveling, and curb ramp construction.
The 2022 Proposition S Street Improvements Project will soon be underway. This year there are approximately forty (40) streets that will be improved through the project. The City will be taking measures to prevent residents from experiencing inconveniences and delays during construction. If you have any questions or concerns during the project’s construction, please contact the Department of Public Works at (636) 227-1385 ext. 168 and they will be happy to assist you any way they can. The City appreciates your patience while these improvements are taking place.
