2017 Roadway Program - West Lane Updates

Howard Avenue

The west lane of Howard Avenue is being poured today. The west lane will remain closed at the end of the concrete pour.  New concrete pavement requires 7-10 days of cure time before any load, such as a vehicle, can be applied. Barricades and construction tape will be placed on the new concrete and removed once it has properly cured.  Understand that curing is an essential step in the installation of concrete pavement. Placing a heavy load on the concrete prior to curing will reduce its quality and lifespan.  If any individual is found driving on the uncured concrete, they will be responsible for the immediate removal and replacement of that section. Foot traffic is allowed on the new concrete the day after pouring is complete.  Once the concrete is cured, the contractor will return to install the new concrete or asphalt aprons. An update will be sent out when the new aprons are open for use. 

Harvey Avenue

Excavation on Harvey Avenue will be completed today.  The contractor is preparing the roadway for the installation of the concrete curb. The curb and driveway aprons are scheduled to be poured tomorrow, August 23rd, weather permitting. 

Fair Elms Avenue

The contractor is tentatively planning to begin the concrete patching on the west lane of Fair Elms sometime next week.  The residents below will lose access to their driveway for the duration of the patching project (~2 weeks). Residents at these addresses may park overnight on the surrounding side streets until access is available.
