Brentwood Place is getting a major facelift.
With money bonded earlier this year, the city will tear up and replace the entire street by summer's end, said Lynn Couch, public works director.
The project will cost just over $342,000, and should take about 90 days.

Brentwood Place, shown here Saturday afternoon, will be torn up this summer so construction crews can replace the pavement and install a drain system so water erosion doesn’t continue to occur. Bids for $342,000 project are due June 27. Council will hold a public hearing on the 90-day construction June 25.
Couch said the project is just going out to bid, so he is unsure exactly when the it will get started. Bids are due June 27. Council will hold a public hearing June 25.
Couch said the construction is set to take place in two phases, with each half of the road being closed during construction. Crews will close road to through traffic during the rebuild.
Tearing up the street is necessary because water from nearby river channels is leaking into the road bed, causing erosion, Couch said. That erosion leads to the road not being able to hold a base.
"Water is getting under there somehow and we don't know how," Couch said. "We are going to take it out, clean out the sub-base and get it repaved."
Construction crews will install an adequate drain system to ensure this problem does not persist, he said.
City officials will notify residents of the two-and-a-half block stretch of road individually.
