We’ve recently posted several project reports for bicycle and pedestrian projects completed in 2009 by Carson City Public Works, NDOT and Parks and Recreation, and others were posted throughout the year. Here is a list with links back to the original posts.
- Fairview Dr widening
- Hot Springs Rd shared lane
- Empire School sidewalks
- Stewart St Extension
- Curry St reconstruction
- Multi-use Path (Bike Route 6 / Linear Parkway)
- Old Clear Creek Rd improvements
- Winnie Ln
- Koontz Ln
- Eagle Station Ln crosswalk and signal
- Mexican Ditch Trail bridges
- repair of drain grates
Carson City Public Works also does ongoing sidewalk repair, which includes replacing buckled and deteriorated concrete, and adding ADA ramps. These projects are scattered about town. I don’t think that this ongoing work is keeping up with the rate of deterioration. A lot of sidewalks in Carson City were either constructed with poor quality materials or not cured properly, and they are falling apart. I believe that it ought to be the responsibility of the adjacent property owner to maintain their sidewalks in good repair, however, state law prevents local entities from requiring that owners do so.
In addition, some bicycle lanes were restriped as part of the routine slurry seal and restriping that happens every year.
