City road construction update
Byron/Ross E. of Main
Road construction work continues in the southeast section of the City on Byron and Ross streets east of Main. The contractor has finished the storm sewer repairs and the new water main will be fully connected into the rest of the City system and water service connections are anticipated to be completed by the end of next week. The contractor anticipates grading will be complete in ten days and the construction of new concrete curbs will then commence. The newly installed curbs will require approximately 10 days to cure. During the curing process you will not have access to your driveway. Access will be restored to your driveway as soon as the concrete has passed all required strength testing. If you have access questions please contact the engineer on site.
Please do not rake leaves to the street at this time. The leaf piles at the street will cause delay in the curb replacement and the paving process. The City will be picking up leaves once the street construction is complete.
Drivers are urged to use caution when driving in the construction zone, as there may be hazards that may or may not be marked. In addition, for the safety of children parents should help insure that children do not play on equipment or on stockpiles of materials.
Questions regarding this report should be directed to Sean Tharpe, job site inspector or email, firstname.lastname@example.org
