A sewer and water line replacement project near P and 16th Streets is also up for a vote from the council.
Bill Busath with the City Department of Utilities says the $5.5 million dollars for the projects would come from $248.5 million in bonds the City issued last year.
"We have been underspending on our infrastructure replacement in all-drainage, sewer and water," he says. "And so, part of this last bond sale was to start increasing spending on aged sewer line replacement."
Busath says crews will take advantage of the access they have when they begin the downtown project.
"It's primarily a sewer replacement project," he says. "But whenever we do sewer replacement projects we always check to see the condition of the water line because it's a lot easier to go ahead and do them at the same time and not have to cut up the pavement again."
He says dozens more meter, sewer and water projects are in different stages of planning.
The City has until 2025 to meet a legislative mandate that all 136,000 Sacramento residences be metered.
