Asphalt Binder Being Installed

This past week, the contractor completed the concrete curb & gutter, concrete sidewalk, and concrete driveway installation. The contractor also performed the fine grading of the aggregate base course. The 1st layer of asphalt binder was installed on Friday.  The 2nd layer of asphalt binder layer is scheduled to be installed on Saturday, July 27th. The contractor also performed some additional storm sewer improvements behind the concrete curb & gutter.  

Next week, the contractor will complete the storm sewer improvements, adjust the existing manholes, and perform landscape grading behind the concrete curb & gutter, around sidewalks, and storm sewers. The asphalt paving contractor will install the asphalt driveways.

It is anticipated the landscape contractor will begin grading and installing topsoil prior to sod installation. Sod installation will not be performed until the fall when growing conditions are more favorable.

Once all the landscape grading and topsoil installation is completed, the final lift of asphalt surface will be installed and the pavement markings will be completed.

The contractor is anticipating to work on Saturday, July 27th starting at 7:00 AM. The contractor will be installing the 2nd lift of asphalt binder.

The southbound detour along Washington Road between Norwood Terrace and Central Road will be in effect for the project entirety, around August 15th.

Thank you in advance for your patience utilizing the posted detour routes and during the construction operations.

With the concrete curb & gutter and asphalt pavement installed, the project is starting to come to a close. The dust and bumpy roadway conditions are now behind us. We thank you again for your patience and understanding throughout the entire construction process.

Roadway Reconstruction On-Going

This past week, the contractor completed the storm sewer and water main improvements along the project site. All underground utilities are now nearly completed with only a few items remaining throughout the project. The contractor also began the roadway reconstruction process from Norwood Terrace to Central Road. The contractor first removed the existing asphalt pavement, then began excavating and installing a new aggregate base.

Next week, the contractor will continue to perform the roadway excavation process to Central Road. The contractor is also anticipating to install the concrete curb & gutter mid-week and concrete sidewalk at the beginning of the week. Prior to installing the concrete curb & gutter, residents will be notified regarding access to their driveways during the construction and curing process.

The contractor is anticipating to work on Saturday, July 13th starting at 7:00 AM.

The southbound detour along Washington Road between Norwood Terrace and Central Road will be in effect for the project entirety, around August 15th.
