October Street Updates

The finishing touches have been applied to Ingalls and Abbey, with a small amount of ground restoration still needed. As of writing, the preventative maintenance "cape seal" is being applied to the downtown streets and Jennie Lane. It looks good! Better late than never...pretty sure if we read past articles, it was supposed to happen in July.
Concerning our reconstruction projects, the watermain work is a thing of the past! Sidewalks and road demolition are underway now, with most work complete on Worchester and Chesterfield. Curbs and drive approaches are due in the month of October, with asphalt expected to quickly follow. The engineer and contract both affirm the ability and motivation to complete on schedule by mid-November, but we definitely lost time. There is no question that the flat work (concrete sub-contractor) had some scheduling issues which slowed down the demolition work of the general contractor, along with subsequent asphalt work.
The contractor will do their best to notify residents of drive access interruptions due to concrete work, as well as parking arrangements. If you are ticketed for on street parking in relation to this issue, please contact city hall! Please work with us during this most difficult phase. We understand that timing is not as reliable as we would like and that a lack of drive access is very inconvenient.

Trick or Treating in the city will officially be recognized on October 31st from 6:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. Treat or Treating will NOT be permitted in the street reconstructions zones of Worchester, Chesterfield, and Winston Drives for safety reasons!

September Street Update

September should be a busy month for all the street projects. Here is the scoop:
Ingalls should be complete, with the exception of turf restoration by Saturday, September 9th.
Abbey should also be complete by the 9th. Note that this project was delayed by unforeseen subgrade conditions that require some full depth reconstruction. Though this certainly caused a delay, the road will have a much longer life due to the additional work.
The final 'cape seal' process for those streets due for preventative maintenance will commence following the completion of INgalls street. This last component was delayed to protect the coating from construction traffic in the vicinity. Applciation should only take one or two days and will result in a finished, uniform, and black surface.
Sidewalk replacement is underway on Worchester. Concrete work will continue in phases throughout the reconstruction area of Worchester, Winston, and Chesterfield. Once curbing is in place, road removal and replacement can begin. While no longer ahead of schedule, the contractor still anticipates completion this season.

August Update!

Work on Abbey Lane and Ingalls Street is underway, with concrete work and milling of asphalt occuring the week of the 14th. The plan is to have substantial completion before school starts. There is more rain that is typical for August in the forecast that we hope we can work through.

We are still unable to pin down the contractor that was approved to apply the cape seal to the streets slated for preventative maintanance. This work was to begin on July 25th and has still not commenced. Once the contractor begins, all work should be completed within two or three business days and cause minimal disruption.

Reconstruction efforts will be in full swing soon for Chesterfield, Winston, and Worchester. This process will include total street, curb, drive approach, and sidewalk removal and replacement. There will be pronounced dust, noise, and access issues. Please work with our contractor to complete this as painlessly as possible. If you are experiencing issues that appear to be outside the expected scope of a reconstruction, please contact the city office at 810.635.4464.

July Street Update Supplement

Preventative maintenance on streets slated for the slurry seal is expected to occur between July 25th and Juily 28th.

Ingalls Street and Abbey Lane are slated for resurfacing. This will include some curb replacement, milling of the top asphalt layer, and replacement with new asphalt. Ingalls Street, between School and Fairchild is proposed for narrowing, which will include a new curb and sidewalk installation on the north side. This change will eliminate onstreet parking, increase pedestrian safety, and lower the design speed. This project is expected to be substantially complete in mid-September.
