Whit's End Road is part of the 2017 Roadway Improvement Program bid, which is valued at over $1 million. The project is scheduled to reconstruct almost 5.4 miles of roadway, reconstruct over 1700 ft. of drainage, and replace approximately 800 ft. of water main.
Work Phase I: Water Improvements
Water main and storm drainage improvements are scheduled to be performed in anticipation of roadway reconstruction. The antiquated existing water main will be replaced with new 12” diameter ductile iron water main. In addition, water services (with in the right of way), gate valves, hydrant assemblies, and other pertinent infrastructure will be replaced. Please note that there may be an occasional water service interruption. Notification of any scheduled interruption of water service will be made 24-hours in advance either in person or by door hanger. Further, there may be a need to enter your home to access the water meter to ensure proper service operation. You will also be contacted in advance of this procedure.
Work Phase II: Roadway Improvements:
Whit's End Road is scheduled for a reclaim treatment which involves the pulverizing of the existing roadway into a gravel subbase material, re-grading and compacting this sub-base material, and the installing the base course pavement. The roadway improvements outlined above are planned to be completed prior to 2017 winter shut-down. It is anticipated that the final “top course” of pavement will be installed in late spring or early summer of 2018. This will allow for any imperfections in base course to present itself through a freeze/thaw cycle and be repaired. Likewise, final improvements next year will include blending driveway aprons (only as necessary), loaming and seeding disturbed areas, and final cleanup.
The Sub Contractor Fenton and Sons completed the installation of the new water infrastructure. The Contractor, Lazaro Paving, completed the reclamation and fine grading of Whit’s End Road. Followed by, paving the roadway to binder course for the winter.
