Street Resurfacing Project

Project Summary
The 2018 Street Resurfacing Project includes the following streets: Anduin, Andre, Claychester Ct (east of bridge), Christine, and Windridge Dr/Ct.  With the exception of the southern part of Christine, each street will have its existing asphalt surface milled off, underlying concrete replaced on an as-needed basis, and then an asphalt overlay.  The southern section of Christine will simply receive an overlay.  None of these streets will be completely reconstructed in the manner that Claychester Drive was last year.

Bids were opened on 3/16 and Ford Asphalt was the low bidder.  The Board of Aldermen approved the contract on 4/9.  The pre-construction meeting took place 7/31, and work is expected to start after Labor Day.  This project was intentionally scheduled for late summer to stagger it from the other significant projects occurring elsewhere in the City earlier in the spring/summer.

 and Schedule

Notification Letters were hand-delivered on 9/4 regarding the work. Milling of the existing asphalt took place on Thursday and Friday 9/6 & 9/7

After milling, areas needing concrete base repair were marked for removal and replacement.  The areas needing repair are determined by the Director of Public Works based upon experience and a technique called sounding.
While Andre doesn't need any base repair, significant base repair is needed on Anduin, Claychester, Christine (north half), and Windridge Dr/Ct.  

Sweetens Concrete Services, a subcontractor to Ford Asphalt, began base repair work on 9/12, starting with Christine and Anduin. Slabs were removed on Christine 9/13 and on Anduin 9/14. They were poured back in on 9/17 and 9/18, and the concrete needs at least 5 days to gain strength (cure) before putting traffic back onto it.  Sweetens will "flip" Christine on Monday 9/24, starting removals on the west side of the street, and putting traffic back onto the east side of the street. Once all the new concrete on Christine and Anduin has cured, they will be paved with asphalt, along with Andre.  That asphalt paving should take place approximately 10/2. Watch the bright green signs for updates on when the street will be closed for paving.  

Sweetens began removals on Claychester on 9/18, graded and set forms on 9/19, and poured concrete back in on 9/20.  They started removals on Windridge Drive/Court on 9/20. Concrete work on those streets will last approximately 3 weeks due to the extensive repairs.  After the concrete has cured, those streets will receive their asphalt overlays.

During construction, please set out your trash/recycling on the regular schedule.  We are in contact with Waste Connections, and they will use smaller trucks for these areas during construction.  During concrete pours, expect delays while trucks unload.  Please be patient, and allow extra time for your trip.  If you urgently need to get through, ask the workers drivers politely, and they'll move as soon as they can.
