Last week A. Lamp Concrete Contractors was removing pavement, excavating soil, and installing stone base course on the south side of West Lake Ave. from Greenwood Rd. west to the end of the proposed new curb. A. Lamp installed curb and gutter on the south side of West Lake Ave. from east of Pickwick Lane to approximately 250' east of Elmdale Avenue.  Also, A. Lamp's asphalt subcontractor, Peter Baker & Son, was installing two layers of asphalt binder course on the south half of West Lake Ave.  Additionally, A. Lamp's electrical subcontractor began to install conduit for traffic signal.  Some utility conflicts remain which may cause construction to temporarily leave gaps in curb, sidewalk, paving, etc.

This week A. Lamp is scheduled to begin removal of existing asphalt and soil on the north side of West Lake Ave."

This week A. Lamp Concrete Contractors completed installation of all storm sewers within the roadway limits on West Lake Avenue.  A. Lamp also continued survey work associated with the roadway excavation.  A. Lamp’s crews also began removal of existing pavement and excavation for the new roadway and curb.  The traffic pattern was reconfigured this week to allow one way westbound traffic only until August 23 (for additional information on this, please see the previous blog post).

 

Next week, A. Lamp is scheduled to continue excavation of the roadway, installation of the roadway stone base, and installation of curb and gutter.  Traffic will remain one way west bound for the remainder of next week.  Traffic delays should be expected during this work.

 

Please be reminded that the detour was put into effect to re-route regional traffic away from the construction site.  Any traffic that is not going to or from a business or residence within the project limits should use the detour to avoid lengthy delays.

This week A. Lamp Concrete Contractors completed storm sewer main line installation on West Lake Avenue from Greenwood Road west to the railroad tracks.  After completion of storm sewer main line, A. Lamp began storm sewer lateral installation from Pickwick Lane to Greenwood Rd.

Next week, A. Lamp is scheduled to continue storm sewer laterals on West Lake Avenue from Greenwood Rd. towards the railroad tracks, which will include work in multiple locations per day.  Additionally, A. Lamp's electrical subcontractor is scheduled to begin work associated with traffic signals.

During work this week traffic was restricted to 1 lane during working hours, which will be a common procedure for this project.  The detour was put into effect to re-route regional traffic away from the construction site.  For the remainder of the project, the site will be closed to thru traffic and local traffic should expect delays.
