Posted on April 20, 2020 at 11:40 AM by Tyler Dickinson

The below update provides a forecast of construction operations planned for the week of April 20, 2020.   Please note that this forecast is subject to change due to weather.

PROJECT LOCATIONS LISTED IN ALPHABETICAL ORDER

Dartmouth Ave (Wilmot Rd. To Pine St.) Including Pembroke and Circle Courts
The contractor anticipates completing the required underground improvements this week. The contractor will then start with concrete curb and gutter removal and replacements this week on the north side of Dartmouth Lane. These removals and subsequent replacements will include spot repairs to Pembroke and Circle Courts. The contractor anticipates pouring these locations early next week. Additional notices will be distributed to those whose driveways will be impacted. 

Knollwood Ave (Margate to Kingston)
Last week, the contractor began the various locations of concrete replacements along this block. The contractor will continue this work later this week. 

Next week, the contractor anticipates removing the top layer of the asphalt in preparation for sub-base preparation. During this time, there will be a rough grooved surface until the contractor is ready for final surface paving along the entire stretch of Knollwood Rd. 

Knollwood Ave (Warwick to Margate)
Once the contractor completed the concrete installations of curb and sidewalk on the east side of Knollwood Rd, they began the removals of concrete curb and sidewalk on the west side. Today, the contractor began pouring the new west side curb and will continue with sidewalk installation on Tuesday and Wednesday. 

Next week, with concrete work completed, the contractor anticipates beginning full depth pavement removals by grinding out the existing pavement. This work results in heavy truck traffic which may cause delays for those driving on Knollwood Rd. The Village encourages motorists to utilize adjacent roadways during these phases of work. 

Margate Terrace and Westgate Road (Warrington to Kenton)
This week, the contractor will work to complete the remaining curb and sidewalk installation along these streets. 

Next week, the contractor anticipates removing the top layer of the asphalt in preparation for sub-base preparation. During this time, there will be a rough grooved surface until the contractor is ready for final surface paving along the entire stretch of Knollwood Rd. 

CORONAVIRUS NOTICE
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.
