SURREY - The City of Surrey has been awarded funding through the Safe Routes to Schools program to construct sidewalks throughout portions of the city. Underground storm sewer and pipe installation work will begin on Monday, with construction of the sidewalk to follow. The project is anticipated to take two weeks to complete, given ideal weather conditions.
Sidewalks will be constructed from Third Street South to First Street South along Pleasant Avenue, on the east side of the roadway, and on Second Street Southeast from Pleasant Avenue to Surrey School, on the north side of the roadway. The Pleasant Avenue stretch will include a six-foot sidewalk and the Second Street portion will be constructed as a five-foot sidewalk.
No road closures are anticipated at this time. Flaggers may be present intermittently throughout the project, directing traffic through the impacted routes. Drivers should navigate carefully through the construction zone for safety.
The Safe Routes to Schools initiative provides federal funding for the construction of sidewalks to safely get children to and from their schools. The funding is distributed through the North Dakota Department of Transportation. The Surrey Safe Routes to School project was awarded to contractor Ti-Zack Concrete, Inc., for $158,445.
