Street Resurfacing Project
The 2019 Street Resurfacing Project
The first phase of work is installation of curbs at select locations (intersections) along Briarbrook Trail. Curbs were installed the week of June 24th. Paving of Briarbrook was completed Tuesday/Wednesday July 2nd/3rd. Backfilling of curbs took place during the week of July 8th.
Gray Drive was a concrete street with an asphalt overlay. The asphalt was removed on Monday 7/1, and the underlying concrete was evaluated, then marked for repairs. The repairs were significant, and work was delayed while waiting for utility locates. Duraseal brought in Sweetens Concrete Services as a subcontractor, due to the extent of the required repairs. Sweetens began removals on 7/22 and pouring concrete on one side 7/25. More work was done at the intersection with Point Oak on 8/1. The rest of the bad concrete was removed Monday and Tuesday 8/5 and 8/6, and poured back in on Wednesday 8/7, per the notification that occurred via the electronic message panel, to expect delays. This newly-poured concrete base needed one week to cure, after which the street was fully reopened to traffic.
PAVING OF THE ASPHALT SURFACE COURSE IS SCHEDULED FOR MONDAY 8/19. Signs were posted this morning (8/16) and notification letters are being hand-delivered this afternoon. During asphalt installation, the entire street will be shut down to get the best possible end-product, and to keep everyone safe. The Oak Drive gate will be open during asphalt paving. Crystal Lake Park owns the gate, and we had to obtain permission from them to open it.
The work in Royal Acres will still be occurring this summer. Before new asphalt can be placed, old asphalt must be removed from several streets, and curb ramps must be upgraded to ADA standards. So there will be several weeks of other work before significant street closures occur for paving.
