UPDATES

9/10/2018 UPDATE:  Road restoration work will continue this week throughout the project limits.  Below is a summary by street of recent and planned activities.  Please keep in mind that all activities are subject to proper weather conditions. 

Carlton Drive – Last week crews completed all remaining concrete work including curb and sidewalk replacement.  As soon as conditions dry, crews will return to perform final grading, seeding and strawing of the disturbed area behind the curbs.  This may be completed by the end of the week, but is very weather dependent.  Final 1.5” of asphalt surface will be installed within the next two weeks.  In the meantime, residents have full access and use of the roadway. 

Indiana Avenue – Today crews are removing the last of the existing roadway sections that need to be replaced and anticipate installing asphalt base in all remaining areas of the roadway today and tomorrow.  Concrete curb and sidewalk replacement is ongoing and should be completed this week with the exception of the curb and sidewalk from Willard to Carlton where Indiana American is replacing the water main.  Water main and service replacement should be complete by Friday, September 21st.  Final asphalt surface should be installed within two weeks but is contingent on Indiana American finishing their water main replacement.  

Willard Avenue -  Asphalt base was installed last week.  Intermittent curb and sidewalk work to be completed this week.  If soil conditions allow, grading of disturbed areas behind curb/sidewalk to be completed by end of the week. Final asphalt surface should be installed within two weeks. 

McDonald Avenue –  Final surface asphalt still remains on McDonald and should be installed within two weeks. 

Morton Avenue – Crews started forming new curb and sidewalk on the south side of Morton Avenue today.  Concrete will be poured and completed by Tuesday, September 11th.  If soil conditions allow, grading of disturbed areas behind curb/sidewalk to be completed by end of the week.  Final asphalt surface  should be installed within two weeks.

Sanderson Avenue – Crews completed excavation of the road bed and installation of stone subbase last week.  Today crews will install and completed asphalt base installation.  Access will be limited during paving operations but by end of day access and parking will be restored.  Final asphalt surface  should be installed within two weeks.

8/30/2018 UPDATE:  Road restoration work will continue next week throughout the project limits.  Below is a summary by street of recent and planned activities.  Please keep in mind that all activities are subject to proper weather conditions.

Carlton Drive – Today, August 30th, asphalt base was installed on Carlton Drive.  Yesterday crews began to pour concrete for front entry sidewalks to the homes; however, due to a subcontractor personnel issue the work was not finished properly.  These sidewalk sections will be removed and replaced by Saturday, September 1st.  Earlier in the week crews rough graded soil behind the new curbs.  Crews will return to perform final grading, seeding and strawing of this area prior to project completion.  Final 1.5” of asphalt surface will be installed within the next two weeks.  In the meantime, residents have full access and use of the roadway.

Indiana Avenue – Today asphalt based was installed from Carlton Drive to Lake Street.  Crews continue excavation of the existing road bed and stone subbase placement from Lake Street to Willard Avenue and should be complete by Friday, August 31st.  Concrete curb and sidewalk replacement is ongoing and will continue into next week.  Asphalt base for the roadway is tentatively scheduled for Tuesday, September 4th.  Indiana American will be installing a replacement water main beneath the sidewalk on the west side of Indiana Avenue from Carlton to Willard.  This work is scheduled to be completed by the end of September.  Final asphalt surface should be installed within two weeks but is contingent on Indiana American finishing their water main replacement. 

Willard Avenue -  Excavation of the existing road bed and placement of stone subbase should be complete by Friday, August 31st.  Concrete sidewalk and curb replacement should be complete this week.  Asphalt base is tentatively scheduled for Tuesday, September 4th.

McDonald Avenue – Excavation of the road bed and asphalt patching of the sewer trench was completed last week.  Final surface asphalt still remains on McDonald and should be installed within two weeks.

Morton Avenue – Excavation of the road bed and asphalt patching of the sewer trench has been completed.  Concrete sidewalk and curb work was completed this week.  Final asphalt surface  should be installed within two weeks.

Sanderson Avenue – Crews will complete excavation of the road bed and installation of stone subbase next week on Tuesday and Wednesday, September 4-5th.  During working hours on Tuesday and Wednesday access will be limited.  During non-working hours crews will place temporary stone to allow access to the drives and roadway.  Parking on the road should be limited to evenings as long as vehicles are moved by 7 a.m. each morning.  On Saturday, September 8th, asphalt base installation will be completed.  Access will be limited during paving operations but by end of day access and parking will be restored.  Final asphalt surface  should be installed within two weeks.

8/27/2018 UPDATE:  Road restoration work will continue this week throughout the project limits.  Below is a summary by street of recent and planned activities.  Please keep in mind that all activities are subject to proper weather conditions.

Carlton Drive – Last week crews completed subgrade stabilization, stone subbase and curb installation.  This week crews will begin replacing soil behind the newly installed curbs.  Final stone grading will be completed by Wednesday and asphalt base is currently scheduled for Thursday, August 30th. 

Indiana Avenue – Last week excavation of the existing road bed and stone subbase placement from Carlton Drive to Willard Drive was started.  Final subbase grading and miscellaneous concrete work will continue this week.  Asphalt base is tentatively scheduled for Thursday and/or Friday of this week; however, recent water main breaks may impact this schedule.  Contractor is coordinating with Indiana American Water to determine extent of necessary repairs.  The portion of Indiana Avenue from Willard to alley past McLean has already received asphalt trench patching.  Final asphalt surface should be installed within two weeks.  Miscellaneous concrete work will continue this week.

Willard Avenue -  Excavation of the existing road was started last week.  Excavation and placement of stone subbase will be completed this week.  Depending on the crews production level, asphalt base may be installed as early as Friday of this week.  Concrete sidewalk and curb replacement should be completed this week.

McDonald Avenue – Excavation of the road bed and asphalt patching of the sewer trench was completed last week.  Final surface asphalt still remains on McDonald and should be installed within two weeks.

Morton Avenue – Excavation of the road bed and asphalt patching of the sewer trench has been completed.  Concrete sidewalk and curb work will continue this week.  Final asphalt surface  should be installed within two weeks.

Sanderson Avenue – No work this week.  Excavation of existing road and placement of stone subbase tentatively schedule to begin next week.

8/20/2018 UPDATE:  Last week crews began road restoration activities on Carlton Drive and Indiana Avenue.  Unfortunately, due to wet weather crews were only able to work two of the five days last week.  Additionally, poor soil subgrade conditions have required additional engineering and construction efforts in order to obtain a proper roadbed with adequate strength that meets specifications.  Geotechnical Engineers visited the site this morning to test the soils and provide recommendations so that restoration work can resume today, again pending weather. 

Crews need dry conditions in order to install the new road bed.  If conditions stay dry, the stone road bed replacement and curb installation will be completed on Carlton Drive by Thursday of this week.  In the meantime, residents on Carlton can park on the roadway in the evenings as long as vehicles are removed by 7 a.m. each morning.

Starting on Thursday of this week, additional road restoration work will begin on the remaining streets within the project area, which includes Willard, McDonald, Sanderson and Morton Avenue.

7/31/2018 UPDATE:  Sewer installation and testing of the new sewer piping has been completed.  The project engineer has coordinated with the Contractor to determine curb, sidewalk and road restoration needs and limits.  The restoration work is scheduled to begin as early as Monday, August 6th or no later than Monday, August 13th depending on weather and crew availability. 

Concrete curb and sidewalk work will be the first items completed and will be followed by full road restoration.  In general, the road restoration will be completed in the same order as the sewer pipe installation by starting on Carlton and progressing throughout the neighborhood.  Thank you for your continued patience.

6/7/2018 UPDATE:  Sewer installation has been completed on Morton Avenue.  Remaining sewer installation consists of a segment on McDonald Avenue from Willard to Sanderson and on Sanderson from McDonald to Korb Avenue.  The sewer crew has been idle this week while Indiana American Water company completes the relocation and replacement of the water main and services on McDonald and Willard Avenue.  The water company work should be completed this week and the sewer installation will resume on Monday, June 11th.

There is approximately three (3) weeks of sewer installation work remaining.  Upon completion of the sewer installation, crews will begin road restoration, which will consist of full width paving of all streets disturbed, curb and sidewalk replacement (of areas removed or damaged).

5/11/2018 UPDATE:  The sewer crew’s production has picked up and they have installed all sewer pipe on Willard up to the intersection of McDonald Avenue.  From this point the installation will continue down McDonald towards Morton Avenue and then up Morton towards Korb.  Once this leg of sewer is installed the crew will return to McDonald and Willard intersection to lay down McDonald towards Sanderson.

Indiana American Water is also onsite performing necessary water line relocation and replacement.  Their crew should begin replacement of the main on Willard from Indiana to McDonald the week of May 14th.  The new main in this area is anticipated to be located beneath the sidewalk on the north side of Willard.  Once replacement and testing is complete, Indiana American’s contractor will also replace any damaged or removed sidewalk associated with the water main replacement.  After the work on Willard is complete a section of main on McDonald will be replaced.  Their work should not disrupt water service to any homes.

Lastly, once all sewer work is complete the crew will begin road restoration work which will provide for the paving of all streets impacted by the work.  Additionally, any curb or sidewalk that was removed or damaged as a part of the work will be replaced.

4/25/2018 UPDATE:  Indiana American Water has delayed the start of the planned water main replacement on Willard Avenue while their engineering department finishes plan development.  As soon as their updated schedule is made available, we will post an update to this site.  Sewer installation continues on Indiana Avenue and is approaching McLean Avenue.  Sewer installation on Indiana Avenue is expected to be completed by the first of next week.

4/23/2018 UPDATE:  Last week sewer installation work resumed on Indiana Avenue starting at Willard and progressed to a point near Morton Avenue.  Sewer work will continue progressing down Indiana Avenue this week.  Indiana American Water is scheduled to have a contractor begin replacing the existing water main on Willard Avenue between Indiana and Korb starting Tuesday, April 23rd.  Water service outages are not expected during the replacement of the main other than very brief interruption when service is switched from the old water main to the new one.

4/12/2018 UPDATE:  Due to water main leaks and breaks, production on the sewer installation has been suspended for the past two weeks.  Indiana American Water has been working diligently to identify, locate and repair leaks near the intersection of Willard and Indiana Avenue.  As of Wednesday, 4/11/2018, Indiana American appears to have the leaks in the area stopped and the sewer installation crew is planning to resume activities on Monday, 4/16/2018 within the intersection of Willard and Indiana Avenue.

4/6/2018 UPDATE: Work is currently underway on the Basin 16 Division B Sewer Improvements. A map below shows the current progress of the crew (green is completed, red is work that is still ongoing) and will be updated as crews move through the neighborhood.
