Whitaker Mill Area - Water Line Replacement Status Update

MAY 21, 2014

Good Morning!

I?m writing to provide an update for the Whitaker Mill Area Water Line Replacement project.

Whitaker Mill Rd
The two-lane section of Whitaker Mill Rd between Glenwood Ave and Reaves St has been added to the Public Works Dept resurfacing list. This resurfacing will occur in late June or July 2014, weather permitting. See map area at the bottom of this email for the specific area of resurfacing.

When weather permits, there will be some asphalt repair work done on Whitaker Mill Rd near the Pine Dr intersection in the right lane. This work will be done by closing the far right eastbound lane with a lane closure and traffic flaggers.

Scales St., Sunset Dr., White Oak Rd.
Paving of the gravel patches on these roads are complete. Current work includes seeding and straw to grass areas at services.

Center Rd.
Water line, services and patch paving is complete. Upcoming work includes seeding and straw to grass areas at services.

Pershing Rd.
Service connections to the new water line are 50% complete. Upcoming work includes completing service connections and paving the gravel patch. Residents will be notified in advance of short-term water shut-offs.

Georgetown Rd.

The water line has been installed, and the contractor is testing. Upcoming work includes service connections and paving the gravel patch. Residents will be notified in advance of short-term water shut-offs. The remaining work will be done with lane closures that will allow through traffic on Pershing Rd and Georgetown Rd, however the driving surface includes a gravel patch and it is recommended to use an alternate travel route when available.

-Expected final completion is the first week of May, weather permitting.

Rachelle
