1. Crain Avenue Resurfacing Project — The City’s contractor will be starting the resurfacing of Crain Avenue from North Willow Street to Elmwood Drive, which will consist of milling 3″ off of the existing asphalt pavement and resurfacing it with 3″ of surface course asphalt. Additional work will include medium depth pavement repairs and minor utility structural work.
Normal traffic patterns will be maintained for most of the work but motorists should expect delays throughout the duration of the project. Crain Avenue may be closed to through traffic from North Willow Street to Elmwood Drive when the contractor places the rubberized asphalt surface course so that traffic does not damage the hot asphalt pavement. The closure to through traffic should be a one day event, weather permitting, and range from 4 to 6 hours. A discussion will be held with the contractor at the preconstruction meeting to see if the road closure can occur on a Saturday. This type of work is performed utilizing a “moving” construction zone. Vehicles utilizing any street that is being resurfaced can expect minor traffic delays since the traffic will be reduced to one lane where the work is being performed. Residents and businesses may have a temporary loss of access (up to ten minutes) to their drives as the construction work passes by their property.
8. Annual Concrete Repair Program — The City is meeting with the contractor to begin our annual concrete repair program. The work will consist of removing and replacing existing concrete sidewalk, concrete drive apron, concrete curbing and upgrading concrete ramps to ADA standards at intersections. Traffic will be maintained on all streets during construction. Please note that there may be minor traffic delays on all affected streets throughout the project’s duration. The traffic delays usually last about 5 minutes but may vary depending upon the situation. It is anticipated that there will not be any road closures as a part of this project.
