Full depth excavation for the Western Avenue Central Phase Improvements Project will begin next Tuesday, April 28, 2020. The full depth area will be split into two phases: Half of the remaining full depth work will be excavated, then brought up to dense grade. This should help prevent excessive dust and mud. Once the first half has been brought up to the dense grade level, the second half will be excavated and also brought up to dense grade. The contractor will start near Llewellyn Drive and work easterly towards Stanley Park to the recently completed section.
Once all dense grade and fine grading have been completed, hot mix asphalt base course will go down, followed by intermediate course. Once all roadway structures have been brought up to grade, and granite curbing plus asphalt berm is in place, top course will be placed throughout the project.
A message board will be up notifying the traveling public of the upcoming construction. Please plan accordingly.
