Arner Avenue  and Dale Street North  Reconstruction

Update 4-19-19

It is expected the contractor will start working on the outstanding items required to complete the project in early May.

Update 11-9-18

Work on Dale Street North residential driveways, along with miscellaneous punch list items, will continue once the weather permits, and will be followed by restoration work.

Update 11-2-18

The contractor is currently working on installing the concrete sidewalk along Dale Street North, and will finish the week of November 5th, weather permitting. Please do not walk on or ride a bicycle over the new concrete for the first 24 hours. We also ask residents to avoid driving over the new concrete sidewalk for 7 days after it has been installed. The new concrete needs time to fully harden to support the weight of a vehicle or else it will get damaged. Thank you for your continued cooperation and patience.

Update 10-26-18

PAVING RESCHEDULED
Paving on Arner Avenue and Dale Street North has been rescheduled to Monday, October 29th due to rain this Friday afternoon. Paving under heavy rain will cause unintended results that negatively affect the quality of the pavement.

 

Update 10-25-18

The final pavement layer is scheduled for this Friday, October 25th, weather permitting. You may drive on the new pavement once it has been fully compacted by the rollers, or when the paving crew says it is okay to do so. Please note that you may be momentarily delayed for up to an hour or more while the new pavement is being installed.For your safety and others', we ask that you continue to be cautious driving through the work zone and next to heavy equipment. 
 
The Dale Street North sidewalk is scheduled to be installed next Wednesday, October 31st, weather permitting.

 

Update 10-24-18

Yard and boulevard restoration work is being completed along with work to raise road manholes and gate valves in preparation for the final pavement. The exact date for paving has not yet been determined. As the project nears completion, please remember to continue to use caution while driving through the work zone and next to heavy equipment. 
Please note that once the sod has been placed, it will require 1 inch to 2 inch of water a week for the roots to take hold. While contractor will be responsible for watering the sod for the next 30 days as necessary, we do encourage you to take time to water the sod if you begin to see it drying out. We also ask that you do not mow the new sod for at least two to three weeks. Mowing and other traffic on the new sod can damage the root structure and hamper future growth. When you do mow, start by mowing on the highest setting on your mower and gradually work down to your normal height throughout the year. Sod that is damaged by residents mowing too soon or excessively short will not be replaced by the City. Please also avoid having children play on the lawn until at least a month after  green-up. It is best to keep heavy traffic off the lawn until May. Additionally, please do not apply typical weed and feed this fall. Herbicides (weed killers) that interfere with rooting could kill your new sod. 

The City will conduct final sod inspections in the spring of next year after the snow melt. If the sod is found to be healthy, residents are expected to take care of it from that point on and the City will no longer be responsible for the replacement of sod that is damaged or dead from neglect.
