First Layer of Asphalt on Westview Scheduled for Saturday, November 22nd

This past week the concrete contractor, Landmark Construction, poured the concrete curb & gutter along Westview Road from the cul-de-sac to Glenayre Drive.

DiMeo Brothers continued with the roadway reconstruction process along Westview Road by grading and preparing the base course for the first layer of asphalt pavement. The contractor also adjusted manholes in the roadway along Glendale Drive to the height of the final asphalt surface elevation. The contractor continued to grade and install soil behind the concrete curb & gutter along Westview Road.

Anticipated work to be completed this construction season includes the following:
·         First layer of asphalt pavement on Westview Road: Saturday, November 22nd
·         Final lift of asphalt pavement surface on the entire project site: Week of December 1st.
·         Grading of landscape areas and installation of topsoil: Weather dependent
·         Installation of asphalt driveways: Week of November 24th or December 1st, weather dependent.
·         Installation of temporary asphalt pavement along Glenayre Drive, Week of December 1st.
·         Miscellaneous repairs and utility work along the project site including manhole adjustments, cleaning of structures, televising of storm sewers, fire hydrant relocations, and others.
·         Site clean-up.

Work to be completed in Spring of 2015 (As part of Phase I Improvements):
·         Reconstruction of Glenayre Drive from Glenview Road to Westview Road including concrete curb & gutter, new aggregate base course, asphalt pavement, and landscape restoration
·         Sod restoration not completed this year. It is unlikely that sod will be available for the remaining of this construction season. The landscape will be graded. Topsoil will be installed if material is available. If topsoil and sod become available due to favorable weather conditions, additional topsoil and sod restoration will be completed. 

Phase II Improvement along Glenayre Drive, Glenridge Drive, and Glen Court will be bid during the Spring of 2015 with construction to begin in the spring or summer of 2015.

Roadway Reconstruction On-Going along Westview Road. Landscape Restoration On-Going.

Following the installation of the concrete curb & gutter the week of November 3rd, the contractor continued with the roadway reconstruction of Glendale Drive from Central Road to Westview Road.

Last week, the first layer of asphalt pavement was installed along the remaining portions of Central Road and Glendale Drive from Central Road to Westview Road.

The contractor also continued with landscape grading, installing topsoil, and laying sod along Central Road and Glendale Drive The contractor will continue with landscape restoration this week with the hopes of having all the sod installed by the end of the week in this area. The sod will be evaluated again in the spring to ensure a healthy stand of grass is established and repair any areas that have settled.

By the end of this week, the contractor is anticipating to have all of the underground utility work completed associated with this project. There are only a few minor items remaining to be completed.

The contractor also started the roadway reconstruction process along Westview Road from the west end towards Glenayre Drive.

This week, the schedule includes concrete curb & gutter being installed along Westview Road on Monday or Tuesday, November 17th or 18th. The contractor will continue with the roadway grading following the concrete curb & gutter installation. The first layer of asphalt pavement is currently scheduled for the end of this week or beginning of the week of November 24th. It is anticipated the first layer of asphalt will be installed along Westview Road prior to the Thanksgiving Holiday.

The current schedule includes installing the final asphalt surface layer on all roadways with concrete curb & gutter that have been previously paved with the first layer of asphalt. This work is scheduled for the first week of December.

As evident by the falling temperatures, the construction season is coming to an end. The contractor is committed to getting as much work completed this year as possible and weather permits. We are still evaluating the extents of the work that will be completed. Whatever roadway reconstruction is not completed this year, a temporary asphalt surface will be installed for easier travel and snow-plowing operations. The roadway improvements will then be completed in 2015 and the temporary asphalt will remain in place until the roadway is reconstructed.

Thank you again for all your patience and understanding throughout the entire construction process, it has been greatly appreciated. We do understand what a huge inconvenience living in and around a construction site can be. We hope you are satisfied with the end result as the asphalt pavement and landscape restoration is being completed.

Concrete Curb & Gutter This Week

Last week, DiMeo Brothers  continued with the installation of the new storm sewer along Westview Road.
This week, the storm sewer crew will continue with the storm sewer installation along Westview Road. It is anticipated the storm sewer work will be completed by the end of the week or early the following week. Once the storm sewer work is completed, all the underground utility improvements will be completed.

Roadway reconstruction of Glendale Drive began last week.  The contractor started approximately 3/4 of the way north of Central Road and worked south towards Central Road. It is anticipated this portion of the roadways will be excavated and new aggregate base installed by the end of the week.

This week, the contractor will return to where they started on Glendale Drive and work north towards Westview Road. The contractor is anticipating to have this portion of the roadway excavated and new aggregate base installed prior to Wednesday.

The major work operation scheduled for this week is the installation of concrete curb & gutter. The concrete curb & gutter will be installed along the remaining portions of Central Road and along Glendale Drive from Central Road to Westview Road. The current schedule is for string-line to be installed on Wednesday, November 5th. Grading of aggregate base and structure adjustments on Thursday. Pour concrete curb & gutter on Friday. We are requesting all residents be out of their driveways by Wednesday, November 5th starting at 7:00 AM to facilitate this construction. Residents will not be allowed back into their driveways for approximately 1 week. We ask that you park your vehicles on the north side of Central Road, south side of Westview Road (west of Glendale Drive only), and west side of Glenayre Drive. Residents will be able to park on the east side of Glendale Drive during the overnight hours, but we ask that all vehicles be moved by 7:00 AM each morning.  We are requesting these parking locations due to the width of the roadways and on-going construction. If you require handicap access please contact Russ Jensen or Chris Baumann so we can make arrangements. 

We understand the significant inconvenience the upcoming work is causing to your daily lives. We thank you in advance for your patience and understanding during this time.

Hope you had a safe and fun Halloween!!!
