Snap-on Drive & Moore Street Improvements Updates
October 4, 2021
Wick’s Construction plans to pave both blocks of Moore Street tomorrow, Tuesday, October 5th. Mainline paving may require the contractor to preform late evening or overnight sawing. Sorry for any inconvenience, but it is necessary to avoid unwanted cracks in the new pavement. Hand work in the McGregor Street intersection is also planned to begin later this week with driveway and sidewalk pours to follow. If all goes according to plan, McGregor Street could be back open late next week.
Underground work has continued, the sanitary sewer work is complete, and the watermain work is almost finished. Storm sewer piping will begin soon. After all the underground work is complete under the new street area, grading and base will take place in preparation for paving.
What can I expect during construction?
The contractor plans to close Moore Street to all traffic once construction starts. Access to your property off Moore Street will be very limited. You may have to use alleys, park on a side street or at a neighbor’s house, where your vehicle is safe and out of the way. If you have any specific access needs, please let Todd know.
Until further notice, continue to place your garbage and recycling bins where you normally place them for each scheduled pick-up. We ask that you please have your garbage or recycling bins at the end of your driveway by 7:00 a.m. the day it is supposed to be picked up. This will help the contractor know that garbage and recycling bins need to be moved to side streets. The contractor will contact and coordinate with the pick-up companies. Please write or display your house number prominently on your bins so that it can be returned to you.
Occasional water shut downs will be required for the crews to make connections to the existing water lines. We ask for your patience and understanding, as the contractor will do their best to provide reasonable notice and reduce the length of any water shut downs required. Typically, we will try to ensure that at least a one-day notice is given for shutdowns and the outage limited between 2 to 8 hours long.
Private utility locate “flag” markers and construction survey stakes will continue to be used and reset during the project. Please do not disturb these markers as they are important for construction. The contractor may stage equipment and materials in the right-of-way throughout the entire project area. Manholes, pipe, and other materials may be staged in the parking area between the curb and sidewalk to be used later in the project.
If you have questions or concerns, please contact the on-site inspector, Todd Olson at 515-350-3742 or Todd.Olson@bolton-menk.com.
