Woodvale Ave Update - 4/7/2020

April 7, 2020

Last week, the contractor continued with the installation of the new storm sewer from North Avenue to the south limits. This includes the new two outfalls that discharge into the creek. The contractor also completed the water main testing and chlorination for the new section at the north end of Woodvale Avenue.

This week, the contractor will work to finish the storm sewer installation throughout the project. Weather depending, the contractor anticipates completing the rest of the storm sewer work by mid next week. This work at times will cause delays in through traffic. During these situations, motorists are encouraged to use adjacent roadways to avoid the construction. The contractor also plans to complete the remaining water main work by completing the new service connections as well as the final connection to the existing water main.

Once the storm sewer and water main work is completed, the contractor will begin the roadway reconstruction phase. This will include the removal of the existing road, the installation of new curbs and sidewalks, and the paving of the new road. As discussed at the public meeting, the contractor will reconstruct half of the roadway at a time. A one way detour will be installed towards North Avenue with the posted detour utilizing Wincanton Dr., Warwick Rd., and Kenton Rd.

The Village’s infrastructure construction projects fit under an exemption per the Governor’s Stay at Home order. Outdoor activities, like construction projects, generally will provide for good social distancing that poses little risk of transmission, but it still is important to ensure the ability to wash or sanitize hands and take other precautions. Village and contractor personnel will continue to practice safe social distancing and sanitation efforts during the construction.
