Work planned for the week of June 14, 2021:
The utility contractor plans to start work in the Hardscrabble Circle and Hardscrabble Road North area early in the week. Work will include mobilizing equipment to the site, setting up traffic control, delivering material shipments of pipe, and beginning to fuse the pipe segments into longer segments that can then be installed in the ground via drilling. Prior to drilling, the contractor will remove certain areas of pavement within the roadway, and begin small excavations. These areas may be about 10 feet by 10 feet, and traffic flow is expected to be maintained around them. Please exercise caution when driving along these roads when construction is actively occurring.
Work on the 2021 MSA Street Improvement Project, City Project 01-21 will begin in late June, early July and will take approximately six weeks to complete and include:
