5-Year Street Improvement Plan
How the Street Improvement Plan
Funded In 2013, the City Commission approved a five-year street improvement plan utilizing two one-half cent sales taxes dedicated to transportation projects. Seventy % of the funding collected from the sales tax will be used for street preservation (crack sealing, seal coat); 30% will be used for repair and replacement.
History of the Funding
A 1/2 cent sales tax was renewed in 2004 with funds split between wastewater and transportation; this tax expired in 2013. In 2014 the tax was renewed through 2023 with the funds dedicated solely to transportation. Funds from this sales tax were used primarily to pay the City's portion of the 4-land highway to the Industrial Park. The final payment on that project was made in 2013, and the 1/2 cent sales tax revenues became available for other transportation projects.
In 2009 voters approved an additional 1/2 cent sales tax, for 5 years, to be dedicated to non-highway street projects from April 2010 through march 2015. This sales tax was renewed and will now expire in 2025. With two dedicated sources of revenue through 2023 and 2025, a multi-year plan to improve streets throughout Coffeyville was developed.
- From 2011-2014 nearly every street in Coffeyville, that is not beyond being saved, has been crack sealed.
- In 2013-2015, 350-400 blocks, or approximately 31 miles, of streets have been surface sealed.
- In 2012-2015, 41 intersections have been improved. 29 were contracted for either full intersection replacement or drainage swale replacement. 12 have been completed by City crews.
