Landscape restoration activities anticipated to be completed earlier this month were delayed due to weather. Late last week, the contractor was able to begin preparing areas and installing topsoil throughout the project limits. Topsoil installation is anticipated to be completed by the middle of this week, before Thanksgiving. Installation of sod is anticipated to be completed next week.
The remainder of the pavement patching on Carr Street, Birch Lane, Weber Drive, and within the East Park Apartment Complex Parking Lot was completed last week. This week the contractor completed concrete curb, sidewalk and driveway replacements along the streets impacted by construction this year. Construction equipment and materials are being removed from the site in preparation for the winter shutdown period. Weather pending, installation of topsoil and sod is expected to begin next Tuesday, November 12th and be completed by the end of next week.
Remaining water main and service installations in the Phase 2 area along Linden Lane (Oak Lane to Birch Lane), Willow Lane (Linden Lane to Carr Street), and Birch Lane (Linden Lane to Carr Street) will resume next spring and be completed by the end of June 2020.
Water service installations were completed on the west half of Cedar Street earlier this week between Linden Lane and 2303/2306 Cedar Street. Water main installation also started on Carr Street, Birch Lane (between Carr Street and Weber Drive) and Weber Drive (south of Birch Lane) and is anticipated to be started within the East Park Apartments northeast parking lot off Weber Drive. Next week, the contractor anticipates beginning water service installations on Weber Drive (between Central Road and Oak Lane) and along the east half of Cedar Street.
Water service installations on Weber Drive are scheduled to begin on Tuesday, October 1st. During this time, the southbound lane of Weber Drive will be closed to thru traffic; however, the northbound lane of Weber Drive will remain open. Proposed water mains may be connected to the existing water mains at various locations towards the end of next week as well. Residents affected by these shutdowns will receive a notice the day prior to this work occurring.
Water main installation continued this week on Weber Drive and Oak Lane. This work is anticipated to be completed early next week at which point the detour will be temporarily lifted and Weber Drive will be reopened to traffic. Additional updates will be provided to inform residents, schools and PACE when the detour is lifted and prior to any re-implementation of the detour. Next week, the contractor anticipates continuing with water main and service connections on Linden Lane. The proposed water main on Linden Lane will be connected to the existing water main on Maple Lane which will require a shutdown. Existing water services will be shut off during the day when your water service is disconnected from the old water main and connected to the new water main. Residents affected by these shutdowns will receive a notice the day prior to this work occurring.
Water main installation will begin on Linden Lane between Central Road and Oak Street. Fire hydrant installations will also be completed. The proposed water main on Linden Lane will be connected to the existing water main at Oak Street which will require a shutdown. Residents affected by the shutdown will receive a notice the day prior to this work occurring.
The contractor will grind the existing pavement where the proposed water main will be installed along Cedar Street and Linden Lane. The asphalt grindings will be left in place to maintain access. Water main installation will begin along Cedar Street at Linden Lane with operations moving east towards Weber Drive. It is anticipated that water main installation along Cedar Street will be completed by the end of the week.
