The Contractor intends to complete all work, except parkway sodding, on Park Boulevard from Fairview to Crescent by Friday, August 3. The narrative below lays out the tentative and weather dependent schedule.
Paving of Leveling Binder Layer of Asphalt - Friday, July 13
The Contractor intends to pave the first one-inch (1") thick layer of asphalt on Park Boulevard from Fairview to Crescent Boulevard on Friday, July 13. This layer of asphalt establishes a smooth and properly sloped base to pave the final surface layer of asphalt on, prevents the reflection of cracks in the underlying concrete base through the final surface layer of asphalt, and provides a reference point for the proper re-installation of the manhole frames/covers to the correct grade in the roadway. Prior to this paving operation, the Contractor will sweep and prime the roadway with oil (on Thursday, July 12).
Re-installation of Manhole Frames/Covers - Week of July 16 - Week of July 23
It is anticipated that all the manhole frames/covers will be re-installed in the roadway starting the week of July 16. This process involves breaking out the asphalt pavement around each structure in the roadway, removing the temporary plate underneath, setting the manhole frame/cover on new adjusting rings over the structure, and pouring concrete around the manhole frame. The frames/covers will be reinstalled in phases to avoid a complete closure of Park Boulevard. As such, the work will take approximately one week to complete including curing of the concrete around the manhole frames.
Paving of Surface Layer of Asphalt - Week of July 23
Weather permitting, the Contractor intends to pave the second and final two-inch (2") thick layer of asphalt on Park Boulevard from Fairview to Crescent during the week of July 23. The tentative date of surface paving is Tuesday, July 24. Please understand this date is subject to change given the timing of this notice. Prior to this paving operation, the Contractor will sweep and prime the roadway with oil.
Other various activities to be completed by August 3 include: two storm sewer repairs, a water main valve replacement, concrete curb placement for sidewalk ramps, rough grading/backfill of voids along the curbs and sidewalks, asphalt driveway patching adjacent to sidewalk replacement, and restoration of pavement markings.
Residents should anticipate these work activities to cause temporary roadway lane and driveway closures as well as general delays and inconveniences in driving through the project corridor.
