This past week the concrete sub-contractor, D’Land Construction, completed the concrete curb & gutter, sidewalk, and driveway installation along the south side of Bellwood Lane, east side of Longmeadow Drive, and north and west sides of Ralmark Lane. The contractor has not yet back-filled in front of the curb & gutter to allow sufficient time for the concrete to cure. Please do not drive on the new curb& gutter or concrete driveways until the barricades are removed and the area in front of the curb & gutter is filled with aggregate. Asphalt driveways will be temporarily ramped with aggregate until they are fully restored after the asphalt roadway surface is installed.
Last week, Glenbrook Excavating was also on-site performing repairs associated with the underground utility work that were indicated on their punch list.
Next week, Arrow Road will be on-site to begin the pavement removal and milling process on the north and south side of East Lake Avenue. The contractor will remove 2-inches from the existing asphalt pavement along Longmeadow Drive and adjoining streets south of East Lake Avenue. It is anticipated a layer of asphalt pavement will remain on these sections of the roadway. Residents will be driving on asphalt, but it will be “grooved” and rough. Once the asphalt milling process is completed and all required base repairs are completed, the contractor will begin paving the new asphalt surface.
The contractor will remove 4-inches of the existing asphalt surface along Longmeadow Drive, Ralmark Lane, and Bellwood Lane north of East Lake Avenue. It is anticipated this will remove the entire existing asphalt pavement to the existing aggregate base course. Residents will be driving on a gravel roadway until the roadway can be graded and the asphalt binder is installed. Following the pavement milling, the existing aggregate base will be graded and compacted. Once the aggregate base work is completed, the asphalt binder and surface layers will be installed.
We ask that all vehicles be removed from the roadway on the days scheduled for work within the roadway. Additional information will be provided to residents regarding anticipated work schedule, parking restrictions, and access to driveways.
The landscape restoration along the north half of the project will be completed following the asphalt paving process.
We continue to expression our gratitude for your patience during the construction operations. Your cooperation with the inconvenience associated with the concrete curb & gutter construction was greatly appreciated. We continue to request your cooperation during the asphalt removal and paving process.
