Planning/Scoping Stage: Sprague Avenue from Bernard to Scott Street

Project planning and scoping for a project on Sprague Avenue from Bernard east to Scott within the South University District has finished. The project is now in the design phase, with the goal to begin construction in the Spring of 2019.

The construction of this street will include water, sewer, and stormwater utility work. The 2019 construction project will target Scott Street to Grant Street. Construction from Grant Street to Division Street will take place in 2020.

Survey data from citizens and property and business owners along Sprague led to the following recommendations for the street.

  • The three-lane street section will be extended from Sherman to Pine Street.
  • West-bound Sprague will have a turn-only lane approaching Bernard Street, dropping to one lane west-bound lane.
  • Parking will be retained on both sides of the roadway, except between Browne and Division Streets.
  • Sidewalk will be repaired and widened.

The construction of other projects along Sprague Avenue have been coordinated with the Scott to Grant Street project. Work will begin on the street Grind and Overlay Project from Scott Street to Helena Street in early spring 2019. Construction of the Sherman Plaza will start fall of 2018 and is expected to be completed in spring of 2019.

Funding for project construction will be a combination of arterial street funds, utility funds, and University District Revitalization Area revenue.
