Last week, the contractor
completed the remaining storm sewer and available water main work on the
project which has allowed them to begin the next phase of the project.
As part of this next phase,
the contractor has installed the previously communicated detour for SE bound
traffic on Woodvale Avenue. This allowed the contractor to begin to remove the
existing roadway and also begin earth excavation below the old road near the
south end of Woodvale Avenue.
ANTICIPATED WORK THIS WEEK
This week, the contractor will continue the roadway
reconstruction and excavation beginning near Kenton and moving north. This will
include Woodridge Court which is anticipated to begin towards the end of the

phase of construction will often result in heavy truck traffic as material is
moved in and out of the site. During these removals, access to driveways will
be maintained by using stone ramps. However, during the excavation directly in
front of driveways, access may be delayed at that time. Furthermore, during the
concrete replacements of the curb and sidewalks, driveway access will be
blocked until the concrete is strong enough to handle vehicles. Notices with
additional information will be hand delivered prior to these driveway impacts.
