The Council approved Watson Asphalt Paving Co. Inc. as the 2016 overlay contractor, 5/3/2016General Information about the Project:Hours of work will be between 7:00 am and 5:00pm daily. Driveway Access on most streets will remain open throughout most of the construction but traffic will be reduced to sharing a lane controlled by flaggers. In cul-de-sacs, crews will work with the residents to temporarily close the cul-de-sac so that paving operations can be completed quickly. During the actual paving process, there is typically a two to three hour time period where access to driveways is not allowed. This is time needed for the pavement to cool and harden before traffic can drive on it.
On Street Parking on the days of construction, on-street parking will need to be restricted. Signs will be posted in advance of the work to notify residents of the parking restrictions.
Waste and Recycling Schedule is not changed due to construction. When days of paving and waste collection coincide, we work with the collection service to adjust their route schedule and focus first on the streets that are being paved. If there is construction in your neighborhood, please be sure to have your waste and recycling out extra early.
Tree Trimming may need to be done in front of your house. If there is vegetation in front of your property that extends out into the street, it will need to be pruned back to allow the equipment to do the street resurfacing. Please trim the vegetation along your property if this is the case. City crews or the Contractor will trim vegetation as needed for the project. However, they will only be doing the minimum needed to clear the road for paving and some additional trimming may need to be completed afterwards by the adjacent property owner.
Street Cuts - Ordinance # 02001-78 prohibits the excavation of resurfaced or newly constructed roads for a minimum of five years following construction or paving. If you are planning to have any underground utility work done, such as water, sewer, telephone, gas, electrical, etc., you are strongly encouraged to expedite this work if it involves utility work under the new pavement. Please call us as soon as possible to coordinate this work.
