Brainerd staff reported the project is needed because of the condition of both the underground utilities and the streets.

Total cost is estimated to be $764,204.

Of the $355,553 in street reconstruction costs, the city estimates about $130,000 would be assessed against benefitting properties.

With the Garfield Project, reconstruction would include:

• 10th Avenue Northeast from J Street to L Street.

• 11th Avenue Northeast from J Street to L Street.

• J Street Northeast from 10th Avenue to 11th Avenue. • L Street Northeast from 10th Avenue to 11th Avenue.
