Current Street Projects

STREET PROJECTS STATUS UPDATES
This is where you can find a status on all of the City's major street projects.  Preparatory work can take place well in advance of the seal coat or overlay and includes any concrete work, ADA ramp improvements, localized base repair, etc.  Seal coat application is weather sensitive and will be performed when conditions allow.  Generally, this means that seal coats are not applied during the winter months or whenever nighttime temperatures go below 60 degrees.  Seal coat cannot be applied in wet conditions and will not be done if rain is anticipated. 

LINK ROAD PROJECT

The Link Road is a 3 year project in order to maintain lane two open lanes of traffic during construction. This project is over a 10 million dollar project, being paid for by a local business (not tax dollars) that uses the road daily. This reconstruction will be done in 3 phases.  

  • Phase 1 - complete rebuild of Link Rd from Squirrel Creek Rd to C&S Rd.
  • Phase 2 - rebuild 2 intersections Squirrel Creek Rd and Link Rd, and C&S Rd and Link Road.  C&S Rd and Link Rd will have turning lanes and a traffic light. Squirrel Creek Rd and Link Rd will be widened for turning lanes and a traffic light.
  • Phase 3 - rebuild of Squirrel Creek Rd, east of Link Rd.


STATUS UPDATE 2/23/2019: Weather permitting, work on Link Rd will continue in March.  The timeline is based and adjusted off of the weather freeze/thaw and when the asphalt plants stop making asphalt for the winter.  The entire road base is being removed, replaced with new materials, compacted and rebuilt.  The goal was to complete the east side before the freeze thaw did not allow for good compaction.  As we are able to keep both lanes open, albeit at slower speeds, the engineers determined we would get a better compaction if we waited. The asphalt lanes that currently exist are temporary and will be rebuilt with new lanes. As this is a 3 year project we want to side on quality over speed.  The reason it is a 3 year project, in 3 phases, is to allow the road to stay open with 2 lanes and not close.  Patience will be a necessity; this will not be a quick project.
