Update – 9/30/19

Contractors continued installing underground conduit for the intersection traffic signals and interconnect last week.  Mast arm foundations were also poured for the new signal equipment at Quentin Road and West Cuba Road.  Contractors continued to place aggregate for the future shared use path on the east side of Quentin Road.  It is anticipated the path will be paved at the end of next week.  Last week fence installation started at several project retaining walls and will continue this week. A new traffic pattern is anticipated to be in place today, Monday, September 30th.  Northbound traffic will be shifted east through the project limits on to the new asphalt pavement.  This is necessary to construct areas of the future medians and temporary pavement. Pavement removal in the medians will begin this week.  This lane configuration will be in place until approximately the end of October when southbound lanes will also be shifted east.    Please check the Photos tab for more in-depth information regarding the project.

Update – 9/24/19

Asphalt paving was completed last week for the first stage of work.  The newly paved lanes are the future northbound Quentin Road.   Your patience during this operation was appreciated! Last week, installation of underground conduit for the traffic signal interconnect started.  The interconnect system links traffic signals together to improve traffic flow by optimizing signal timing.  Aggregate was also placed for the future shared use path on the east side of Quentin Road.  Paving of this path is anticipated at the end of next week. A new traffic pattern is anticipated at the end of this week.  Northbound traffic will be shifted east through the project limits on to the new asphalt pavement.  This is necessary to construct areas of the future medians and temporary pavement.  This lane configuration will be in place until approximately the end of October when southbound lanes will also be shifted east.    Other work anticipated this week includes continuing aggregate placement for the shared use path and conduit for the new traffic signals. Please check the Photos tab for more in-depth information regarding the project.

Update – 9/17/19

Concrete curb and gutter for the first stage of work was completed early last week.  Asphalt paving started last week on the future northbound Quentin Road lanes.  The asphalt will be placed in four separate passes (or lifts) due to different material specifications and to achieve compaction requirements.  Three of the four lifts will be placed now, with the final lift being placed at the end of the project.  Work on the first three lifts will continue through the end of this week.  As a reminder, this will require multiple trucks pulling into and out of the work zone.  Please use caution and watch for flaggers and workers. A joint sealer will be placed on the joint of two pavement passes.  The sealer will help extend the life of the pavement by limiting water infiltration into pavement joints. A new traffic pattern is anticipated for the week of September 23rd.  Northbound traffic will be shifted east through the project limits.  This is necessary to construct areas of the future medians and temporary pavement.  This lane configuration will be in place until approximately the end of October when southbound lanes will be shifted east.    Other work anticipated for this week includes Read More

Update – 9/9/19

Outside of a few small areas, roadway aggregate installation concluded last week for the first phase of work.  The aggregate has been fine graded as a final step before asphalt paving begins.  Paving is anticipated to begin this week.  Please be aware this will require multiple trucks pulling into and out of the work zone.  Concrete curb and gutter was poured at several project locations.  The remaining long stretches and gaps on the east side of Quentin Road are anticipated to be finished this week. Concrete staining for the parapet wall at Buffalo Creek continued last week.  Contractors focused on the detail work to replicate stacked stone on the parapet wall at Buffalo Creek. Work anticipated this week includes topsoil placement, placing aggregate for the future shared use path on the east side of Quentin Road, and underground conduit installation for the traffic signals at East and West Cuba Roads. New traffic patterns are now anticipated for late the week of September 16.  Traffic at the south project limits will be shifted east, then jogged back west to the current lanes between High Knoll Court and Greenwood Drive and east again at the north project limits.  This is necessary to Read More

Update – 9/4/19

Installation of roadway aggregate continued last week at various project locations.  Depending on weather, asphalt paving is expected to begin at the end of this week or next.  Paving will require multiple trucks pulling in and out of the work zone.  Please use extreme caution when driving through the project. Storm sewer installation concluded last week.  Additional storm sewer work will occur later this year during the next phase.  Concrete staining for the parapet wall at Buffalo Creek started last week.  When complete, the staining will replicate stacked stone. Pavement markings were refreshed within the project limits. Northbound traffic on Quentin Road will see a new traffic pattern as early as the week of September 9th.  Traffic at the south project limits will be shifted east, then jogged back west to the current lanes between High Knoll Court and Greenwood Drive and east again at the north project limits.  This is necessary to construct a portion of the future medians.  This will be the first of several small phases of work before all traffic is shifted east so work on the west side of the road can begin.
