Traffic Signals to be Activated. Landscape Restoration On-Going.

Last week, the landscape contractor performed landscape grading, installation of topsoil, and laying of sod. The electrical contractor continued with the installation of the traffic signal equipment.

This week, the traffic signals are scheduled to be turned on and fully operational by the end of the day Monday. There might be some minor delays during the traffic signal start-up as the signal is being tested and optimized for traffic flow.

The electrical contractor is also hoping to excavate and pour the street light foundations for the remaining street lighting along the project site.

The landscape restoration will also continue this week as the sod and grass seed is installed. All landscape restorations will be evaluated in the spring to ensure a healthy stand of grass is established and settled or uneven areas are repaired.

The signing contractor is anticipated to complete the installation of the permanent traffic control signing this week. The temporary construction signing is in the process of being removed as appropriate based on the construction progress. A majority of the temporary construction traffic control devices should be removed by the end of the week.

Also this week, the fence contractor is scheduled to be on-site installing the fence on the south side of West Lake Avenue at designated locations.

One of the major items of work that will be carried over to the spring of 2015 is the installation of parkway trees. Beyond that, it is anticipated only minor punch list items will remain following this construction season.

Concrete Sidewalk and Bike Path Nearly Completed

Last week A. Lamp Concrete Contractors poured the majority of the concrete for the sidewalks and bike paths along the south side of the roadway and a few gaps on the north side of the roadway.

Last week the contractor also installed a majority of the asphalt driveways, including the binder and surface lifts. The asphalt contractor paved the roadway widening along Greenwood Road from the project limits to West Lake Avenue. The electrical contractor continued to install various items associated with the proposed traffic signal including concrete structures and loop detectors.

This week A. Lamp Concrete Contractors will continue to work on the concrete sidewalk and bike path, hopefully completing all work associated with those items. A.
