Due to the difficulties of working during winter months, work on the 5900 South Improvement project will continue through December 22 then crews will suspend construction activities until early spring. Crews will be back in the spring as soon as the weather allows to complete the remaining work.
Crews will work diligently this week to ensure that the roadway, pedestrian access, and resident and business driveway access are all fully functional through the winter months (described below). We appreciate the patience of area residents and businesses as we continue to complete work on this project.
Driveway approaches - Crews will place temporary asphalt in all remaining driveways this week. This will ensure that these residents have complete access to their driveways during winter months, including the ability to remove snow. Permanent concrete or asphalt at these locations will be placed as soon as weather allows in early spring. Intermittent, short tem (less than 30 minutes) driveway closures will be needed as this paving work is completed in each driveway.
Our priority is to have full, safe pedestrian access on both the north and south side of 5900 South through the winter months. Crews will install temporary asphalt in any needed areas this week. Permanent concrete at all temporary asphalt locations throughout the project area will be placed as soon as weather allows in early spring.
Crews will continue landscaping repairs in the park strips throughout the project area through December 22. Any remaining landscaping repairs will be completed in early spring as soon as weather allows and concrete sidewalks have been placed, including all sod installations due to lack of availability during winter months. Any sprinkler repairs that have already been completed during winter months will also be tested again in the spring to ensure that the systems are fully functional.
