WHITNEY STREET, 6TH STREET, 7TH STREET, & 8TH STREET AREAS:
There was a crew on site yesterday digging out gravel from sidewalks and driveways, and replacing with asphalt. They are beginning this process for those that have had their private sewer and water work completed. They will continue this process as construction continues.
The Private Sewer & Water Contractor continues their work on site. Remember to keep an eye on your phone as they will call to set up appointments to complete the required work.
There will be a crew on site next week placing topsoil in low areas for those properties which have had their private sewer & water work completed. This will also be an ongoing process along with pavement patches. Although full vegetation may not be achieved this year for these locations, they will provide a smooth continuous surface in the grassy areas. If needed, work will be done in spring to ensure full vegetation of restored areas.
If you need special accommodations for parking, please reach out as we can arrange for different parking options if we know about them. This includes anyone with disabilities, recent surgeries, expecting mothers, and mothers with newborns that have appointments. Unfortunately, there is not a one size fits all for parking and the fewer cars that the contractor has to work around, the faster they can get the work done and finish the neighborhood.
While driving through the construction site, be sure to travel slowly and keep an eye out for equipment. This not only cuts down on the dust, but also keeps the construction workers safe. Operators try their best to see traffic, but their view can be obstructed at times. It is always best to try and gain eye contact with equipment operators prior to driving by.
*PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS WORK AND SCHEDULE CAN CHANGE DUE TO WEATHER OR UNFORSEEN CONSTRUCTION DELAYS. THESE UPDATES ARE TO AID THE COMMUNICATION PROCESS AS WE ALL WORK TOGETHER TO COMPLETE THIS PROJECT IN A TIMELY MANNER*
Utility and street construction is not easy. There will be dirt, mud, dust, and construction equipment everywhere. Construction activity will be noisy and getting to your residence will be difficult at times. We ask for your patience and understanding as we make the necessary improvements to your street and utilities. Do not hesitate to contact the City with questions or concerns, we can’t help if we don’t know. Contact Taylor Conger, Project Engineer, at 920.766.6305 or [email protected] with any questions.
