Resident Information:

Road construction will be starting in your area soon as part of the 2015 Paving Program. Because of the high traffic and condition of the roadway we will be doing a full reconstruction. This involves:

Demolition of the roadway to remove the existing pavement

Stabilization of the road bed to create a good base for paving

A Minimum 3 day cure of the stabilized roadbed

An asphalt leveling course

An asphalt surface course

Construction is scheduled between 7 am and 7 pm and is weather dependent. During construction you will encounter dust, construction equipment and noise. For your safety and the safety of the construction crew, please be aware of the construction zones and follow the traffic control. Please watch children and pets around construction work.

Please be aware that access to your home may be temporarily blocked when workers are performing work in front of your driveway. Emergency vehicles will have access at all times and mail and trash pickup should not be disrupted. We are coordinating with the schools on bus issues.
