SEE BELOW FOR CONSTRUCTION UPDATES FOR LOCATIONS CURRENTLY UNDER CONSTRUCTION.

*PLEASE NOTE THIS SCHEDULE IS WEATHER AND CONTRACTOR DEPENDENT*

One Way OXFORD

Oxford Road

The contractor has completed the necessary concrete work this week and will begin pavement removals this Monday.  During this operation, the contractor will remove one-half of the roadway at a time (beginning on the west side of the street). This will result in one-way northbound traffic on Oxford Road for the next 7-10 days.

Once the pavement is removed, the contractor will prepare the aggregate (stone) sub-base so that the road can be paved promptly. The Village has approved the contractor’s method of removing  one-half of the road, and paving that half of the road before switching over traffic. This method will maintain a drive-able surface for motorists at all times.

Monday’s pavement removal operation will result in road closures on segments of Oxford Road as the contractor works to remove pavement one block at a time. Pavement removal short term such closures we ask that residents relocate vehicles to adjacent roads and that motorists use alternate routes.

Pavement removal operations include heavy truck traffic and will present delays in accessing residential driveways and to through traffic. Once the roadway is removed, the contractor will install stone access driveway ramps that will allow access to driveways and adjacent roadways. 

Residents whose driveway access will be impacted, will receive an additional notice the day before pavement removal operations are to take place in their proximity.

The majority of Oxford Road will remain open during pavement removal operations. During this time, please avoid the construction operations by using adjacent streets. Please be advised that the information communicated in these updates is a forecast of proposed operations that may change due to contractor availability and/or weather conditions.
