The Grafton Road project is well underway. Here’s what can be expected to occur over the next few weeks, weather permitting:
- Existing pavement is currently being removed in the eastbound lane between Pearl Road and house # 4050. The new pavement base will be installed and prepared for concrete installation during the week of September 25. Concrete will be poured in this section during the week of October 2. Another update will be posted when the exact date of the concrete pour is determined.
- Removal of existing pavement between house # 4050 and Hadcock Road will begin on or about September 21. Pavement base will be installed and prepped shortly thereafter, in anticipation of a concrete pour the week of October 9 (exact date to be announced).
- Concrete work on the intersections of Sandra, Judy, West and East Drives will occur approximately one week after the adjacent concrete is poured. These intersections will be poured half at a time to allow for local traffic to be maintained. Driveway aprons and sidewalk on the south side of the road will be poured during this period as well.
- Construction on the eastbound lane should be complete on or about October 23, at which point the contractor will shift his operations to the westbound lane.
Residents on the south side of Grafton Road will not have access to their driveways until after their aprons are installed.
As a reminder, traffic on Grafton Road is restricted to westbound local traffic only. This restriction will remain in place until the project is completed in December. Only vehicles that have a destination on the affected section of Grafton or on the adjacent no-outlet streets to the south (Sandra, Judy, East and West Drives) should be driving in the work zone. Through traffic should follow the posted detour. Residents north of Grafton Road (including Starview/Judita areas) should access their neighborhoods via Westchester, Beverly Hills or Magnolia. Delays should be expected in the work zone during working hours, which are typically 7 am to 5 pm Monday through Friday.
Further updates and more precise dates will be posted as the project progresses. We ask for your continued patience as we work to complete this much needed roadway improvement.
The reconstruction of Grafton road started on Tuesday September 12, 2017. The project limits are from Pearl Road to just west of Hadcock Road. The project is expected to last to early December, 2017.
The construction zone is closed to all thru traffic. The only traffic allowed is local traffic, those whose final destination is within the construction zone. Local traffic will only be maintained in the Westbound direction.
The detour route for those traveling westbound is Hadcock Road to Keller-Hanna Road to Pearl Road. The detour route for those traveling eastbound is Pearl Road to Miner Road to Hadcock Road.
This project scope is the total replacement of concrete pavement, drainage structures and driveway approach slabs with new material.
The Skyview Drive project is scheduled to start on Wednesday, July 26. The project will last through the end of October.
During that period, the road will be closed to through traffic between Pearl Road and Pinnacle Drive. Local access will be maintained in the eastbound direction only. Traffic will not be permitted to proceed westbound on Skyview between Pinnacle Drive and Pearl Road. Delays should be expected within the work zone during working hours.
During the first phase of construction, residents of Castle Court and Knight Lane will need to access their homes from Pearl Road. Residents of Woodhollow Drive, Villas of Fox Hollow, and Skyview Drive west of Pinnacle will be able to access their homes from Judita Drive via Magnolia Drive during the first phase. Also, it is advised that residents of Forest Hills Apartments use Magnolia Drive to Judita Drive to access the complex’s parking lots.
It’s orange barrel season again.
The asphalt program is officially underway in Brunswick. Resurfacing work is already complete on Rocklyn Drive. Repairs have been made on Jefferson Avenue and Charles Drive, and a leveling course has been applied on Ganyard and Charles.
Still remaining is the chip seal and Onyx surface seal on Jefferson/Ganyard/Charles. The remaining work has not been scheduled, but more information should be coming soon.
The concrete program starts on Wednesday, July 5. Work will begin on Valley Forge and Potomac, and will quickly move from there into Ward 2. Traffic will be maintained but delays are possible.
