STREET CLOSURE-2018 Projects
The City of Waverly is doing three street reconstruction projects this summer.
Amberly Road from 148th Street to 142nd Street (Ash Hollow Creek)
Traffic Control will start late afternoon Monday, May 21st Closing from N 145th to the west. Residents south of Amberly Road in the Riley addition will need to access via N 145th and Amberly Road as that portion will remain open. Once the west end is complete, then the Riley addition residents will access via N 143rd and Amberly Road.
The project includes a new wider concrete road surface, storm sewers, street lighting, and a 10 foot wide bike path.
There are phone numbers on the attached PROJECT NOTICE You may contact any of these numbers, if needed.
Folkestone Street from N 145th to N 148th
The Folkestone project will begin on Thursday June 14, 2018. More details will be sent to the residents living in the area. The project includes a new concrete street, and ADA sidewalk ramps.
N 143rd Street from Amberly Road to Jamestown Street, and Bradford Court
The N 143rd Street/ Bradford Court project is scheduled to begin on August 16, 2018. The project will include removal of the existing asphalt surface, repair of some base concrete and curb, new ADA sidewalk ramps at all intersections, and a new asphalt surface. This project will not involve tearing out the entire street so vehicles will be able to travel on the base concrete while construction activities are taking place. Residents along this project will be given more detailed information.

The street and roads system maintains 60 lane miles or 30 center-line miles of streets within the city limits. Some of the maintenance items include snow removal and deicing, signs, traffic markings, street sweeping, right of way mowing, and street repairs. There are also twelve blocks of alleys within the city that are maintained by public works. 2018 One and Six year street plan map
Street sweeping is done generally four times per year. The streets are typically swept in March/April, after the 4th of July, and in October/November. Sweeping may be done at other times depending on weather events, construction projects, or other events on an as needed basis.
Right of Way Mowing
Right of Way mowing is done in conjunction with the parks, cemetery, and other areas that the city is responsible for mowing as depicted in the mowing map…City Mowing area map
Block Parties are permitted within a street right of way. The city asks that no more than one block section be used for a block party and to clean up any and all debris within the public right of way after the block party ends. The City of Waverly is not liable for any damage or suit that may occur to any private property, person, or damage to the public right of way due to the activities of the block party.
To ask for a block party, please call the Public Works Office at (402) 786-2127. Please give several days notice so that barricades can be delivered to the site.
