Packard Road Project Update
The Contractor has begun to mill the old pavement and replace it with new pavement. Traffic is scheduled to be shifted onto the northern half of the road beginning on Monday, August 13th.
The contractor has begun to install new sidewalk and curb and gutter along the south side of Packard Road and this will continue after the traffic has been shifted.
We have added some additional signs to the construction area, inorder to discourage motorists from using side streets during construction. In addition, we have requested additional patrols by the police to reduce speeding.
Drivers seeking alternative routes through side streets, is not uncommon at the beginning of a construction project. Drivers will soon find an alternative route on a major street. We will continue to monitor the traffic patterns and make additional modifications to the construction signing to discourage the use of side streets.
Hill Street Project Update
The Contractor has completed the road work on Hill Street and has opened the road to traffic. The contractor will place topsoil, seed and mulch in the next couple of weeks.
Local access for vehicular traffic and pedestrian traffic will be maintained during the majority of the project, except for the occasions when pedestrian traffic will be temporarily restricted within the construction work zone.
Garbage/recycling collection, utility services, and mail delivery will be maintained throughout the project. The contractor may need to place temporary mailboxes at a alternative location, if their construction activities are blocking your normal mailbox location.
In some cases, the concrete curb or drive approach may need to be replaced in front of driveways along Packard Road or Hill Street. One day before restricting access to a driveway to perform this work, the contractor will leave a notice at your door. Once access to a driveway is restricted, the driveway will remain inaccessible for 3 to 4 days while the concrete cures. If, due to a special need, access to your driveway must be maintained, please contact us in advance.
As a result of the construction activities, service to some of the AATA bus stops adjacent to the construction area may be interrupted.
This project includes the installation of new 12-inch ductile iron pipe water main within Packard Street, from Platt Road to just east of Burton Road. After the completion of the water main installation, the full width of Packard Street will be repaved. This work is expected to begin on or before April 1, 2012 and be completed on or before August 31, 2012.
In addition, Hill Street will be resurfaced.
The contractor on this project will be C & D Hughes, Inc. of Charlotte, Michigan, as well as their various subcontractors.
