New digital map monitors city’s Capital Improvement Projects

MADISON – Interested citizens have a new tool to monitor the progress of large projects that the City of Madison undertakes.

The city has developed an interactive map that tracks Capital Improvement Projects. The map is available to residents who want to stay up-to-date on current CIP work.

The Capital Improvements Program is a plan for capital expenditures that the city will make annually during a fixed period of several years. The city’s CIP includes improvements that are relatively expensive, non-recurring, have a useful life for multiple years and result in fixed assets.

A Capital Improvement Project can cover several different expenditures:

* Office space or other facilities – This project involves construction and acquisition of new buildings.

* Facility expansion – The city may need to complete additions or renovate existing buildings.

* Roadways – In one type of costly project, the city may construct a new street.

* Drainage – Specific neighborhoods may need improvements to water drainage.

* Land – Another major project for the city is buying land that expands the city limits.

* Recreation – To improve quality of life for residents, the city can add or update recreational facilities.

The city website describes the Capital Improvements Program or CIP as a very progressive process. Leaders can add and delete from the funded and unfunded lists of projects, as needs dictate.

To access the interactive Capital Improvement Projects Map, visit madisonal.gov. From menus at the top of the page, click “Departments” and then click “Engineering.” From the list to the left, click “Capital Improvement Program.” Scroll down in this window to see the CIP map.

Circles on the map correspond to a project in the CIP. Click a circle, and a list of details appears and  describes the project. For example, one actual project is “CIP Linear Projects: Hughes and Will Halsey Lane Additions.”

For that project, the list includes these details:

* Status – “Design.” Another option is “Construction.”

* Type – “Street and Sidewalk”

* Project_Number – “21-017 B”

* Project_Name – “Hughes & Will Halsey Lane Additions”

* Shape.len – “737.81”

* Department – “Engineering.” Indicates the city department that is managing the project.

* Funding – “2020-A Bond Checking”

* Design Consultant – “Internal/CROY.” Also can indicate the hired contractor.

* Design % Complete – “50%.” Shows estimated percentage of completion for the current project completion.

* FundingNum – “2020-A Bond Checking”

* Construction – “TBD” for “to be determined.”

The interactive map defines Madison versus Huntsville city limits. It uses color codes to differentiate between projects for streets, sidewalks, Parks and Recreation, and drainage.
