Thanks to the citizens of McMinnville, the City will begin construction this summer on the voter approved transportation bond related projects. Six street repair and repaving projects are slated for this summer, over approximately 4 miles of City streets around the community. Work will include localized pavement repairs, warm mix asphalt overlays and accessible curb ramp upgrades.
In November, 2014, McMinnville voters passed a $24 million General Obligation Bond measure for street improvements throughout the City. The City of McMinnville appreciates the public for supporting the bond measure and for recognizing and acting on this need. We look forward to completing the planned work over the next several years.
The approved bond measure will fund:
- Capital improvement projects to address traffic congestion and improve safety along several street corridors;
- Street repair and repaving projects on portions of 84 City streets and
- Sidewalk and pedestrian safety projects near schools, parks, other public facilities and in the downtown area.

The bond measure project work is expected to be completed over the next five years. Design of the 5th Street improvements and the Alpine Avenue projects will begin soon, with construction planned in 2016. Design work on the other large capital projects, and the pedestrian safety improvement projects, is expected to begin later this calendar year.
This summer's paving work represents approximately 25% of the street repair and repaving work that will be completed as part of the bond measure funded improvements. The remaining planned street repair and repaving work will occur the next several summers.

Public outreach will be an important component of all of the planned capital projects. Citizens can expect public meetings, website updates, press releases, and project notifications/signage as the projects are developed and constructed.
