Work This Past Week

  • Within the 300 Block
    • Concrete was poured for the sidewalk along the west side of the street.
      • The sidewalks on the east side of the street are anticipated to be
         poured today (10/15).
    • Electrical pedestal foundation and conduit was placed within the planters. 
    • The roadway base has been prepared for mainline concrete pavement.
  • Within the 200 Block
    • The watermain was installed from Pearl Street to the north side of Vine Street and is being tested.
    • A sanitary sewer manhole was installed at Pearl Street to complete the 
       mainline connection.
    • The storm sewer was installed at Pearl Street.

 Upcoming Work

  • Within the 300 Block
    • Concrete curb, roadway, and boulevard foundation paving is anticipated to occur next week.
      • The new concrete typically takes between 7 and 14 days before it can be driven on. Please use extra caution while paving is occurring, and do not enter the area until the road is open to traffic.
  • Within the 200 Block
    • The water service connection to buildings is anticipated to occur early next week.
    • The contractor plans to connect the watermain to the mainline within Vine Street.
    • Installation of the sanitary sewer manhole within the Vine Street intersection is anticipated mid-week.
      • This will require use of the bypass pump at Broadway Street and will cause traffic changes within the 100 block for approximately one day. The contractor will be coordinating with these businesses. 

The storm sewer installation is anticipated to follow.
