The prime contractor is still operating on a reduced work schedule at this time due to the winter weather. Inclement weather has prohibited any grading, concrete, or base stone operations. The prime contractor has, however, had subcontractors on site working through the winter months installing utility line relocations. These include Water and Natural Gas line relocation, and sewer line relocation.
The contractor plans to continue with the installation of new utility lines throughout portions of the project. AT&T will also be working in various locations within the project limits.
The prime contractor is planning to resume grading, storm drain, and base stone operations in the early spring when weather will permit. Primary concentration of efforts will be from Schaad Road to Palmetto Drive as this area has the majority of utility line relocation accomplished. There will also be continuing operations in the area of South Hinton Road with plans to reopen this section of roadway in the early spring.
The sewer subcontractor is planning to begin sewer line installation in the area of Ball Camp Pike and Western Avenue. This will include the intersections of Matlock Road and Dewine. At some point this section of Ball Camp Pike will have to be closed with traffic being diverted to McKamey Road for access to Western Avenue. Traffic on Matlock Road attempting to access Western Avenue will need to detour away from this area. A one week advance notice will be posted on this website as these closures occur.
Another subcontractor will begin installation of 72 inch diameter storm drain alongside Western Avenue within the next few weeks. This installation will be in very close proximity to Western Avenue, and the traveling public is cautioned to use extreme care in this area. These operations will take place in the areas of Short Road and Nickel Road alongside Western Avenue.
