Roadway Reconstruction has Started

This past week the contractor completed the underground utility improvements along the project site. The work included making the connections between the existing and new water mains along Neva Avenue at Harrison Street and Colfax Avenue, removing and abandoning the existing fire hydrants, water valves, storm sewers, storm manholes, and other miscellaneous tasks. The contractor also started removing the driveways, sidewalk, and remaining concrete pavement along Nora Avenue south of Colfax Avenue.
The roadway reconstruction process will continue throughout next week and the next several weeks. The contractor anticipates to perform the work in the following order: Nora Avenue south of Colfax Avenue, Neva Avenue south of Colfax Avenue, Nora Avenue north of Colfax Avenue, and Neva Avenue north of Colfax Avenue. The work will consist of the contractor removing the existing driveways, sidewalks scheduled to be replaced, remaining concrete pavement, and materials below the concrete pavement. The contractor will perform sub-grade repairs as needed and install new aggregate base course prior to the new concrete curb & gutter and asphalt pavement being installed.
Next week the contractor anticipates to complete the roadway excavation process along Nora Avenue south of Colfax Avenue and begin concrete curb & gutter, driveway, and sidewalk replacement. The contractor will also begin roadway excavation along Neva Avenue south of Colfax Avenue.
