WEEKLY STATUS UPDATE FOR FEBRUARY 23, 2017

PUBLIC WORKS & ENGINEERING


Whalen Field Restroom:

CG&B Enterprises, Inc. has resubmitted their plans for their permit application.

Utah Street Reconstruction:

The contractor, Aggregate Industries, is continuing work on excavation for and installation of the new underground dry utility conduits on the south end of Utah. The conduit subcontractor has again encountered hard digging while trenching for the conduits. Aggregate continued work preparing the base on the east side of Utah in preparation for paving the first asphalt lift in the prepared areas. Paving is scheduled for Thursday, February 23. Side streets onto Utah will need to be temporarily closed during paving operations at these intersections. Only the first lift is scheduled to be paved at this time so that the final asphalt lift for the entire roadway can be paved at the same time providing for a better finished product. Once the east side is paved Aggregate will switch traffic to the east side and begin work pulverizing the existing pavement on the west side.

The traveling public is requested to follow the traffic control signage and flaggers as Aggregate will be setting up detours or recommended to use alternate routes.

Residents in the area will notice street lights in the work zone are not coming on. This is due to switching out old street lights for new street lights and old street light cable for new cable. Therefore, there will be several weeks without street lights to facilitate the change.
