Paving Completed along Longmeadow, Ralmark, and Bellwood. Remaining Asphalt Driveways to be Restored by Thanksgiving.

This past week, Arrow Road, the paving contractor completed paving the asphalt surface along Longmeadow Drive from East Lake Avenue to Bellwood Lane, Bellwood Lane, and Ralmark Lane.

The paving contractor also completed the asphalt driveway restorations on the north side of East Lake Avenue along Longmeadow Drive, Bellwood Lane, and Ralmark Lane. The asphalt driveways restorations along Longmeadow Drive south of East Lake Avenue have started and are scheduled to be completed before the Thanksgiving Holiday.

Landscape sub-contractor was also on-site continuing to grade and install topsoil along Longmeadow Drive and Ralmark Drive. The landscaper is anticipating to have all landscape grading and topsoil installation completed by the Thanksgiving Holiday also.

Due to the current weather conditions and work going late into the construction season, the installation of sod north of East Lake Avenue will notoccur this year. We believe the growing conditions will be more favorable and the final product will be much better if we wait until next spring to install the sod. We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause, but feel it is the best decision.

We continue to appreciate your patience and understanding throughout this extended construction season for all of you.

Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving.

Asphalt Surface Paving South of East Lake Avenue Completed.

This past week, Arrow Road, the paving contractor completed paving the asphalt surface along Longmeadow Drive, between Glenview Road and East Lake Avenue.

North of East Lake Avenue along Bellwood Lane, Ralmark Lane, and Longmeadow Drive, the landscaping contractor graded and installed topsoil behind the concrete curb & gutter. Arrow Road performed some asphalt base patching along Bellwood Lane and Greenwood Road. Arrow Road also began driveway restorations along Bellwood Lane including removing the existing pavement and installing the lower layer of asphalt.

The underground sub-contractor was also on-site adjusting manhole frames and lids in preparation of asphalt surface paving.

Next week, Arrow Road is scheduled to pave the asphalt surface along Bellwood Lane, Ralmark Lane, and Longmeadow Drive north of East Lake Avenue. Depending on weather, this work will either begin on Monday or Tuesday and be completed by Tuesday. The contractor will then complete the asphalt driveway restorations along the entire project site on both sides of East Lake Avenue.  We anticipate all asphalt driveways will be restored by the end of the week.

Due to the current weather conditions, we are evaluating the options to determine whether or not the sod north of East Lake Avenue will be installed this fall or if it will be better to wait until early next spring.

We continue to appreciate your patience and understanding as we are working diligently to ensure as much work as possible is completed this year. We have been in constant contact with the contractors to determine their schedules and to ensure this project continues to be a priority.

Pavement Milling / Removal Completed

Last week the concrete sub-contractor, D’Land Construction, completed the concrete work on the north side of East Lake Avenue including opening of driveways. Arrow Road Construction completed the removal / milling of the existing asphalt pavement on both sides of East Lake Avenue. On the south side of East Lake Avenue, the contractor performed a 2-inch surface mill. On the north side of East Lake Avenue, the contractor performed a full-depth, 4-inch, pavement removal.

The contractor was on-site performing some rough grading along the north side of East Lake Avenue to make the transitions between the existing pavement and aggregate base course smoother and also remove some of the bumps creating during the full depth pavement removal process. On the south side of East Lake Avenue, residents will continue to drive on the rough “grooved” surface until the asphalt paving is completed.

This week, the remaining concrete work along the project site will be completed along with a few additional repairs that need to be completed prior to asphalt paving. The roadways will also be evaluated to determine if any repairs need to be made to the remaining asphalt pavement or aggregate base course prior to paving.

Arrow Road will fine grade the existing base course on the north side of East Lake Avenue. Arrow Road is anticipating to perform asphalt binder and surface paving on both the north and south sides of East Lake Avenue.

We ask that all vehicles be removed from the roadway during work hours, 7:00 AM to 5:00 PM.

The landscape restoration along the north half of the project will be completed following the asphalt paving process.

We continue to expression our gratitude for your patience during the construction operations. We continue to request your cooperation during the roadway grading and asphalt paving process.
