Project Updates: 

The contractor is scheduled to start the full width pipe replacement work on May 23, 2022. This work consists of sawing the asphalt surface, removing the asphalt surface, base material and existing pipe one half road width at a time to allow for traffic to pass through the work zone. The next steps include the installation of the new pipe and base material. The contractor is required to bring the base material up to the existing roadway elevation prior to the end of the day. This process will be repeated for the opposite side. After both sides have been completed, excess base material will be removed and replaced with asphalt to the existing surface elevation. There are five locations requiring this type of work. Traffic will be maintained with flaggers during working hours and open to traffic in the evenings with gravel surfacing until paved. This work needs to be completed prior to the final asphalt paving process.
