SEE BELOW FOR CONSTRUCTION UPDATES FOR LOCATIONS CURRENTLY UNDER CONSTRUCTION.
*PLEASE NOTE THIS SCHEDULE IS WEATHER AND CONTRACTOR DEPENDENT *
Bristol Estates & Bristol Drive
On Monday, the contractor plans to begin paving Bristol Estates and Bristol Drive. This work may require the contractor to pave on Tuesday to finish this area. This work will be the first of two layers of asphalt to be installed with the second and final surface layer taking place at a later date. This first layer is intended to provide a smooth surface for the final surface layer.
As part of this work, fresh oil will be placed on the street early Monday morning. This oil allows for a better bond of the new pavement to the existing roadway and lengthens the service life of the new pavement. Residents are advised to drive slowly during this time to prevent oil from splashing on their vehicles. The contractor will install FRESH OIL signs to notify motorists.
Paving operations often include heavy truck traffic and may present access delays to residential driveways and to through traffic. During this time and if possible, please avoid the construction operations and utilize alternate routes. All driveways and roadways will be accessible at the completion of the work day.
Osterman Ave & Somerset Ave
Access to driveways that were previously impacted were reinstated today, allowing those that were previously parked on the street back into their driveways. On Monday, the contractor will begin curb removals along the opposite side of these streets. For those whose driveways will be impacted, please remember to not park within the construction limits during this time. If curbs are poured Tuesday as planned, residents should expect to be able to return to their driveways by the end of the week.
By the end of the week, the contractor anticipates beginning the required underground work on Osterman.
Next week, the contractor will continue to work on the upgrades to the underground infrastructure and anticipates completing this stage of the work by the end of the week.
Once the underground is completed, the contractor will then begin the removals of broken and deficient curbs and sidewalks throughout the roadway limits. This work is anticipated to begin the in next week or two. Further communication will follow prior to any impacts to driveways.
