O’Brien Street project to be discussed at meeting today


Portions of north and south O’Brien Street in Seymour will undergo rehabilitation beginning in 2025.

A public information meeting about these projects will be from 5 to 6:30 p.m. today in the council chambers at city hall, 301-309 N. Chestnut St., Seymour. City Engineer Bernie Hauersperger and GAI Consultants will be in attendance with updated plans to answer questions from the public.

The city is developing plans for road rehabilitation with an additional sidewalk on O’Brien Street from Village Circle Avenue to U.S. 50 and from U.S. 50 to Fourth Street.

The purpose of this project is to improve pedestrian mobility to and from residential, commercial and school facilities. The projects also aim to improve the roadway condition and drainage and to lengthen its service life.

The original roadway was constructed in the 1930s and has been overlaid four times throughout its life cycle.

The proposed start of construction is the summer of 2025.

The cost associated with this project is approximately $2,871,328.48, including preliminary engineering, right of way acquisition and construction with federal and local funds anticipated to be used.
