Hot-mix asphalt paving operations took place over the last two weeks. Crews placed three of the four lifts on future southbound Quentin Road and West Cuba Road. The final surface lift will be placed near the end of the project. Between the top two lifts of hot-mix asphalt, a joint sealant was placed. The sealant prevents water infiltration which leads to premature joint failure during freeze-thaw cycles. The joint sealant placement is tested to assure the proper application rate. Work on West Cuba Road proceeded quickly as the southern and center sections were constructed. This required multiple traffic pattern changes. Work is ongoing on the northern portion of West Cuba Road. Other project work over the last couple of weeks included installation of conduit for traffic signals and installation of railings on retaining wall parapets. Work anticipated over the next couple of weeks includes construction of a retaining wall north of Lea Lane, resuming work on select portions of the noise abatement walls, and sidewalk placement.
