[ARCHIVED] 2016 City Street Project - September 22nd Update

Here is your weekly update on the 2016 Street Project, for September 22nd:

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.

Asphalt Paving: The frequent and heavy rains have gotten in the way of plans to pave the graded areas on Mill and Birdsey. Crews have been in to restore the grading and address the negative effects of the rains. Given the delay, some prep will be taking place early next week with a goal of paving later in the week (weather pending of course). Some concrete work was done in areas not yet complete as well.

Trees: Plans are being made for the planting of replacement trees that were taken down due to the construction. The City is completing a plan to acknowledge properties adjacent to street right-of-way that saw trees removed at the beginning of the project as areas to receive new trees first. Issues such as overhead power lines and maintaining a diverse urban forest will affect the placement of the new trees.

Terrace Restorations: Landscapers will clearly need to account for any and all effect that the heavy rains have had on the restoration efforts of the terraces. They will need to keep working at this.

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