North of East Lake Avenue: This past week the contractor received test results and required approvals prior to installing water services. Water services were installed to individual homes along Bellwood Lane from Ralmark Lane to Greenwood Road and Longmeadow Drive from Ralmark Lane to East Lake Avenue.
Last week, south of East Lake Avenue, the contractor performed some miscellaneous storm sewer repairs. The contractor also continued to grade, cut, and install topsoil in preparation of sod installation. Asphalt trench patching also began along Longmeadow Drive.
South of East Lake Avenue: Next week, the landscape sub-contractor is anticipated to complete grading and installing topsoil in preparation for sod installation. Depending on the weather conditions, the contractor may begin installing sod. Otherwise, the contractor will wait until the weather is cooler for more favorable growing conditions. The contractor is also anticipated to complete the asphalt pavement trench patching along the roadway. The contractor will also begin performing continuity and leakage testing on the new water main.
North of East Lake Avenue: Next week, the contractor will complete the water service installations along Longmeadow Drive. The contractor will also begin making connections and disconnections to the existing water system at various locations. The connections between the existing water main and new water main will require sections of the water main to be shut-off. The contractor will also begin the storm sewer improvements within the area.
Residents will be notified at least 24-hours in advance of any scheduled water main shut-down.
The contractor is currently scheduled to be completed with all underground utility improvements by September 20th. Once the underground utility improvements are completed, the roadway will be rehabilitated with the 2013 Road Improvement Program.
Thank you for your patience during the construction operations.
