2019 STREET IMPROVEMENTS PROJECT
The 2019 Street Improvements Project includes the reconstruction of various streets in Orono. Reconstruction and the addition of a concrete curb and gutter will take place on Forest Arms Lane and East Long Lake Road. Chevy Chase Drive and Tonkaview Lane will have a portion of the road reconstructed with a concrete curb and gutter added, while the remaining portion of the road will be reclaimed and paved.

Week of 7/15
- Tomorrow (7/19), the contractor will be grading areas behind the curb. They will try to make a smooth transition from the top of curb to the existing property elevations.
- Next week, the contractor will still be grading behind the curb, placing topsoil, and completing restoration work. The contractor would like all residents to double check that their dog fences and irrigation are working or if they still need to be fixed. Next week, sod and seed will be placed (weather dependent). We ask that residents help keep these areas watered and do not mow the sod for awhile as it might kill the grass. It is ultimately the contractor’s responsibility to get the grass to grow and keep it alive, but it would help if a lot of residents keep an eye on their lawn and water it if it seems dry.
