Kilkenny has been chosen for Alley Renewal. The planning and design is currently underway with construction anticipated to begin in 2023.

Project Update - November 2023

Alley Renewal construction in Kilkenny has wrapped up for the 2023 construction season! 

2023 construction began in May and was finished the first week of November. The 2023 construction season was a success and we completed all planned construction.

There are some areas in the 2023 construction area that still require sod. Once the weather warms up, typically in early May 2024, the landscape subcontractor will be completing the topsoil and sod placement. By waiting until spring, the sod is more likely to establish. 

The next year of Alley Renewal construction will begin in spring 2024, weather permitting. The majority of the Alley Renewal construction is anticipated to be completed by fall 2024. 

Construction Schedule Update - July 2023
What We Heard Report

Garbage and Recycle Collection

While your alley is closed for construction, waste cart and recycling bag collection will occur from your front street or avenue. Carts and recycle bags should be placed in a visible location along the curb or back of the sidewalk, at which point collection workers will maneuver carts so they can be emptied.

Please mark your home address in the space provided on the carts to ensure they are returned home after collection.

RV and Trailer Parking Permits

If you need access to your RV or Trailer and want to park it on the street during the alley closure please contact the Project Manager. They will work with you to ensure you have a permit issued for the duration of the closure. Please wait until you receive the bulletin from the contractor indicating your exact closure dates to request this permit. 

Alley Renewal: What to Expect During Construction

About the Project

Alley Renewal involves alley reconstruction and repaving, improvements to surface drainage where possible, and upgrading of existing alley lighting to LED fixtures. It also includes the opportunity for a local improvement to add alley lighting if property owners are interested. Utility assessments and repairs, along with removals and pruning of trees and shrubs, are also completed. 

Construction is scheduled to begin in 2023.
