I hope this email continues to find everyone in good health and continued safety. We had some significant work completed on the project and from the sounds of resident reports, the residential construction in the area is well underway too. This of course is not to mention that season usage and lawn maintenance has increased traffic within the project limits.
The following construction schedule is again, all weather dependent, however, it looks like we are getting into more spring/summer like weather, so let’s continue to cross our fingers that it turns out that way.
- Week of May 11 – 15
- Milbocker raised all of the infrastructure manholes in the pavement to the final grade and completed almost all the driveway paving and concrete pouring. Paving of Piney point, driveways and intersections have also been completed.
- Week of May 18 – 22
- Milbocker will finalize the driveways on Monday, completing restoration work like planting dune grass and topsoil and seed. Final paving of the top course on North Shore is tentatively planned for Thursday, May 21. With the top course of asphalt installed, it will make this project substantially completed by May 22 as planned!
- Week of May 26 – 29
- Milbocker will be completing all the pavement markings and permeant signage. Most likely there will be cleaning up, removing equipment and supplies and finishing up any final restoration needs as well. I’m sure everyone would love to have the pavement markings put down right after paving, however, a chemical process will occur and would hurt the integrity of the paint unless we give the asphalt a chance to fully cure to air temperatures and begin the hardening/curing process. This is why they will be waiting until the following week to install them.
The final concrete driveways will be poured on Monday, May 18. These driveways will be usable prior to the final asphalt being paved.
We just ask you to be patient with the process and take direction from the crews on site while traversing the project site to your home.
The construction site got really busy this week. Part of the business was due to the reconstruction process, however, some significant congestion this week came from normal residential landscaping and private construction was happening too. I heard from many of you this week about that and I believe it was a one-time occurrence. Even though the project needs to move forward, so does the private projects and routine maintenance. So I just urge everyone to please use caution as you travel the roadway.
When the final top course of asphalt paving occurs, please use extreme caution and be patient as the crews lay and roll the asphalt.
