Community Council

Sponsor Agency

Estimated Cost

$12,400,000

Funds on hand

$2 500 000

Additional funds required

$9,900,000

Project scope

Urban collector improvements typically include a new road base, curbs, pavement, pedestrian facilities on both sides, storm drains, and street lighting. The exact scope will be determined during design with input from the public.

Project need

The north half of this collector is not constructed and the south half is not constructed to collector standards. This project is a priority for the Abbott Loop Community Council. With the extension of Dowling Road from Lake Otis Parkway to Elmore Road, the extension of Spruce Street will enhance traffic circulation and promote safety by reducing the amount of traffic on surrounding area roads including Norm Drive.

Project status

Design completion requires a contract amendment with DOWL. Draft DSR review in progress. Full project funding is proposed with a combination of state grants and local road bonds.
