[ARCHIVED] July 7th Update - 2016 City Street Project

Here is your weekly update on the 2016 Street Project, for July 7th :

A Note – information on the upcoming activities with the project are subject to change due to weather or other factors that unexpectedly arise. This report is to give you a sense of what is planned for the near future for each part of the project, as adjustments sometime need to be made to address emergencies or for efficiency reasons.

Mill Street: Crews are continuing to work on the first half (Lewis to Main) of the street. The road rebuild work on the Lewis to Main Street phase of the street that has been reported the past couple weeks, is expected to begin next week. Continued work on the storm sewer and wrap up of the utility services is taking place – but once completed, the effort will shift to get the street to a smoother, more drivable condition as the shift moves toward the 2nd half of Mill (Main to Ludington).

Birdsey Street: Water main work is ongoing on Birdsey and will continue into next week. Residents should be notified prior to any expected water use interruptions. Garbage collection issues on Birdsey should also be resolved as well.

Charles Street: The plan was to have pavers up on Charles today to apply the surface, or top layer of asphalt. The recent rain, particularly this morning, may delay that, but they should be completing this work very soon. Work on the restoration of the terraces is continuing, and the contractor has been informed to focus on any damage or effect the recent heavier rains have caused. The City will be thoroughly reviewing the landscaping work in all areas. Any areas deemed unsatisfactory will be addressed by the contractor. All work, once substantially complete, will be under a one-year warranty to which issues will need to addressed.

Prairie & Church Streets: Nothing new to report.

As always, all schedules and work plans are dependent on the weather conditions.

If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know. And again, if anyone knows someone wanting to receive these weekly updates – please have them share their email address.

Thanks to the Community of Columbus for your continued patience with this important public infrastructure project.
