No work completed on-site last week.
The final step in completing the project will be the installation of sod. Sod will not be installed until after the Labor Day weekend due to more favorable growing conditions.
Last week the contractor installed and connected all of the new water services from the new water main to each residents individual water connection. The contractor also completed the connections and disconnections between the existing water main and new water main. The new water main is completely installed and fully operational.
Next week, the contractor will complete the remaining underground utility improvements. The contractor will also begin the roadway rehabilitation process along the roadway. The contractor is scheduled to be on-site on Tuesday, August 20th, to remove the existing asphalt pavement to the existing aggregate base course. The contractor will then perform any needed base repairs and perform fine grading prior to installing the new asphalt pavement.
Once the asphalt pavement is removed, the roadway will essentially be a gravel roadway until the new asphalt pavement is installed. The Village is committed to ensuring the roadway is as smooth as possible and minimizing, to the greatest extent possible, the time from pavement removal to pavement installation.
