Week 9 of construction is nearing completion and the work on the Sherman Boulevard Improvements project is going well. Please remember that Sherman Boulevard is closed to thru traffic. Please use side streets to get to your home or business to reduce traffic on Sherman as much as possible for the safety of the construction workers.
Work completed this past week:
- Removed a sanitary manhole east of Peck Street and made improvements to the sanitary sewer collection system
- Removed 6 old poles and foundations that were for an old sign system over Sherman Boulevard
- Completed work on the water service replacements that had been performed
- Areas where pavement was removed for utility improvements were cleaned up by making clean cuts at the edge of the pavement to prepare for restoration
- Sidewalks, crosswalks, old driveways and damaged curb and gutter has been removed west of Peck Street
- With the exception of a few drainage structures that will be replaced in the curb lines, all underground work is complete on Sherman Boulevard and road restoration is underway!
Work anticipated for the week of August 3:
- Crews do plan to continue with pavement removals tomorrow, Saturday, August 1
- Clean up of pavement and sidewalk ramp removals and preparation for concrete restoration work
- Cutting out manholes from the roadway and lowering them for the pavement milling operations – This will create a lot more holes in the roadway, so please be careful when driving through Sherman Boulevard to your local destination
- Concrete restoration will begin in the roadway to match the existing underlying concrete
Work anticipated for the week of August 10:
- Concrete pavement restoration in the roadways
- Concrete sidewalk and ramp restoration will begin
- Continuing to adjust manhole and drainage structures
All work is weather dependent, but we are currently on schedule with the construction.
Please remember to keep the safety of the workers on this project in your mind as you travel through this active construction site. There may be work going on anywhere in the 1.75 mile corridor, so be aware and drive slow through the site if you must travel on Sherman Boulevard.
