Project Overview

The City is planning to construct a new street named La Mariposa Lane from Braxton Place to West Washington Avenue in 2022 and 2023. The City is also planning to remove the pavement on Braxton Place (South Park Street to La Mariposa Lane) in 2023. Furthermore, the City is also planning to construct a shared-use path connecting Regent Street to La Mariposa Lane in 2023 and 2024. The City plans to install sanitary sewer, storm sewer, stormwater facilities, asphalt, curb and gutter, driveway aprons, street lighting, pavement marking, and signing along La Mariposa Lane. The City also plans to remove and replace portions of the sanitary sewer and storm sewer as well as all the pavement and spot replace curb and gutter, sidewalk, and driveways aprons as needed along Braxton Place. The project construction will occur over 3 years. Phase 1 will consist of the installation of all sanitary sewer and storm sewer along Braxton Place and La Mariposa Lane as well as stormwater facilities and gravel base course on La Mariposa Lane. Phase 2 will consist of finishing work on La Mariposa and opening to traffic as well as all work on Braxton Place. Phase 2 will also consist of placing the gravel base course along the shared-use path. Phase 3 will consist of finishing work on the shared-use and opening to pedestrians and bicycles. The street construction phasing coincides with the work associated in the Bayview redevelopment.
