City crews plan to replace concrete on Holiday Drive, Hayes Drive and at the Sunset Zoo this year.

Other 2020 projects include new asphalt on Kimball Avenue, Dickens Avenue and Claflin Road, among others. In addition, crews expect to repair concrete on Kansas Highway 18.

Officials will discuss road projects on Tuesday when the Manhattan City Commission hears a report about street maintenance projects.

The work session starts at 5:30 p.m. at City Hall. Commissioners will not take binding action during the meeting.

Officials plan to pay for the concrete projects through the general fund and use city crews, according to a memo from the public works department.

The city plans to spend $350,000 to $400,000 a year from the general fund for materials such as gravel, concrete and asphalt.

Officials plan to fund the asphalt projects through the special street maintenance sales tax and use mostly contractors.

The city government received a total of $2.5 million in revenue in the special street maintenance fund last year, officials said.

Five percent of the special street maintenance tax money goes toward improving sidewalk infrastructure near schools through the Safe Routes to School Program.

The city has completed approximately 16 out of 32 school improvement projects, which include improving the sidewalks around Roosevelt, Lee, Northview and Marlatt elementary schools.

Officials estimate the total cost of these school projects will be $608,318.

The city has plans for more road work projects in the next few years, including replacing asphalt along Stagg Hill Road and in the Wyndham Heights Area, among other locations.

Officials did not indicate the price for any of the individual city street projects. However, the estimated total cost of all street maintenance projects is $316.4 million, based on 2019 prices.

Voters approved a 0.2% sales tax for street maintenance in 2017.

The tax doubled the previous $2 million annual street maintenance budget to $4 million. It lasts until 2027.

Public works officials at the meeting also will identify other streets that they believe will need either a new overlay or full-depth repair through 2025.
