Construction Updates – May 13, 2014

20141121_ActiveWorkSites

Please be informed that the contractor will be in the neighborhood paving streets (Phillips Ave., Kathy Kt., Burton Ave., and Adelpha Ave.) and driveway approaches starting on Wednesday, May 13, and running through the end of the week.  This schedule could change if rain causes delays.  We apologize for this disruption and will do our best to accommodate any special needs.

  • Please understand that there will be delays in accessing the area at various points in the process while the asphalt is placed and cooling. It can be up to four hours before vehicles are permitted to drive on the freshly laid pavement.
  • The schedule describing which streets will be paved on which days has not yet been finalized; however, the contractor will be paving the asphalt approaches (the driveway areas adjacent to the street), before paving the roads.
  • If you have an asphalt approach and you will need your car during the day, we recommend that you have your vehicles out of your driveway before 7 a.m. on Wednesday morning and that you park off your street.
  • On Thursday and Friday, vehicles should be parked away from the work area to avoid getting them trapped on the site by 7a.m.  During the day, you may not be able to get to your driveway.  If you need your car during the day, please park off your street.

Repaving the road is the last major phase of the project.  As always, we appreciate your patience as things are wrapping up.  Minor restoration, including placement of road shoulders, top soiling, seeding, and other items will still occur after paving the road.

Thank you for your continued patience and support.  If you have any questions, concerns, or special circumstances, please contact us.

Snow accumulating onsite.

This week, the contractor will be placing the gravel shoulders and gravel sidewalk ramps along Burton, Adelpha, Phillips, and Kathy Kourt and performing general restoration and project cleanup tasks.  After this week, the contractor will be shutting down for the winter and will only be onsite to perform maintenance tasks.

Along Burton, Adelpha, Phillips, and Kathy Kourt the contractor has installed asphalt wedges at driveway approaches and at manhole structures.  Please be mindful of these elevated wedges as you drive along these roads.

The contractor has installed the ADA sidewalk ramps on Dean and Auburn but the sidewalk ramps on Burton, Adelpha, Kathy Kourt, or Phillips won’t be installed until next Spring when the final layer of asphalt is placed on the road.  For the winter, the contractor will level the ramps and place gravel as a temporary walkway.  Please be mindful that the walk surface may be more rough than the sidewalks.

The contractor will be removing the “Road Closed” signs from the project site and all roads will be reopened to thru traffic.

We hope that you have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday this week as you spend time with your loved ones.
