[ARCHIVED] July 15th Update - 2016 City Street Project

Here is your weekly update on the 2016 Street Project, for July 15th:

A Note – information on the upcoming activities with the project are subject to change due to weather or other factors that unexpectedly arise. This report is to give you a sense of what is planned for the near future for each part of the project, as adjustments sometime need to be made to address emergencies or for efficiency reasons.

Mill Street: Need to note that the crews will be working on a storm sewer installation at the Lewis & Mill intersection, expected on Monday. Traffic is not expected to be closed off like it has with the previous work in that area. Crews will begin to start breaking up pavement, curb & gutter on the 2nd part of the street sometime next week. Work on the “phase 1” area will continue focus on grading and making the road more passable for vehicles.

Birdsey Street: Water service lateral work on Birdsey Street should be starting soon, if they haven’t already.

Charles Street: The surface course of asphalt was applied on Monday and restoration efforts continue there. Residents in the area should be seeing a return of the street/traffic signage to the rightful places.

W. Prairie: The inlet protection is to be cleared/cleaned (which is the black material placed in the storm inlets to filter out soil/dirt/etc during the project and prevent it from getting into the storm system).

Church: Other than some adjustments, nothing new to report. Issues and questions, like on other areas of the project have been noted and will be reviewed before the project is completed.

As always, all schedules and work plans are dependent on the weather conditions.
