As you may have noticed, concrete work has officially begun in our sub.
A map of the work can be found here.
Friendly reminders from the contractors and city:
Please note concrete must cure for about 5 days before it can be open to traffic, an adjacent panel can be removed, or asphalt work can occur next to it. Also, refrain from walking or biking on the concrete for at least 24 hours.
Please ask residents to park in drives instead of the street during construction, or park a good distance from the pavement improvements. They will be asked to move vehicles if they are in the way. A few days before the contractor starts, a Spalding DeDecker inspector will paint the limits of repairs, then barrels will be dropped off by Cipparrone so residents will know if they are affected.
Please ask that they have their lawn sprinkler systems turned off while work is occurring in front of their homes. The excess water can make the work more difficult for the contractor, especially if it is filling open holes in the pavement.
Tell residents not to drive through the concrete slurry that results from saw cutting concrete as it can make a mess of cars when splashed and is very difficult to get off. The same is true of tack for asphalt roads – please tell them not to drive on milled, tacked surfaces as the tack can coat tires and is very difficult to remove if it gets on cars.
In the event of limited access to mail boxes, know that the USPS will hold mail at the post office if they cannot get to mail boxes.
The contractor will assist in getting trash receptacles picked up at the end of the drive on trash day if driveways are blocked due to construction. This requires residents to have their trash out to the curb in a timely manner.
Lastly, please remind residents that we understand the construction work may be inconvenient, but bear with us as we do the work and we will try to minimize
