Roadway Improvements to Begin Next Week.

Work Performed, July 24th to July 28th 
·         Installed topsoil and erosion blanket within ditch lines.

Work Anticipated to be Performed, July 31st to August 4th
·         Complete needed storm repairs within existing system that were identified during televising inspection.
·         Remove existing pavement
·         Perform excavation and installation of gravel base in areas of pavement widening

The contractor installed topsoil with a straw erosion control blanket within the ditch lines and in areas where construction previously occurred. No grass seed was installed under the straw blanket. The contractor will lay sod during the September/October timeframe when growing conditions are more favorable. The straw erosion control blanket was installed to prevent the topsoil from eroding away and entering the storm sewer system during rain events.

Thanks again for all your patience as the project continues.
