Update – 4/30/2019
Aggregate was placed in both ground improvement areas between East and West Cuba Roads. This final lift of aggregate will transfer the load of the roadway embankment onto the underground concrete columns to bridge over the poor subsurface soils. Topsoil was also stripped at several locations within the project limits. The topsoil will be respread when embankment and roadway construction is complete. This coming week, roadway embankment placement and storm sewer installation is anticipated to begin. Additionally, installation of the second line of sheet piles north of Greenwood Drive is expected to resume. We are hoping for a more favorable forecast as much of this work is weather dependent.
Nicor Gas is scheduled to retire the old 18” transmission line early next week. When complete, Boschome Drive at Quentin Road will be restored. The detour is expected to remain in place until May 17th. More information regarding the closure can be found by clicking here.
AT&T crews will continue removing retired cables and poles that interfere with the improvement over the next couple of weeks.
