Skyview Drive is completed with the exception of a few punch list items that need to be addressed.
The northbound side of Grafton Road is being poured on Thursday, Nov. 16 and Friday, Nov. 17, with driveway aprons on the same side of the street to follow. The contractor will then begin working on the punch list for Grafton.
Skyview Drive is scheduled to reopen to two-way traffic on Friday, November 10. Final restoration and minor punch list work may still be occurring, so please continue to exercise caution in the work zone.
Construction on Grafton Road is scheduled to shift to the north side of the road on Monday, October 23, weather permitting. Local traffic will continue to be maintained in the westbound direction only, but traffic will be shifted onto the newly constructed pavement on the south side. Project completion is still slated for early December.
On Skyview Drive, the final section of concrete is scheduled to be poured on or about Friday, October 27, weather permitting. Driveways will be constructed the following week. It is anticipated that the road will be reopened to two-way traffic in early November. Exact dates will be announced as the schedule firms up.
The Skyview Drive project will be starting backup as of Thursday, October 12. The cable TV lines that were in the way of construction have been relocated.
As a result of the temporary shutdown, the completion date of the project will likely be pushed back into early November.
The first major concrete pour on the Grafton Road project is scheduled for this Saturday, October 7. Work will start at 7:00 am and will continue until approximately 5:00 pm, weather permitting.
Saturday’s pour will begin at the east end of the project (near Hadcock Road) and will progress westward to approximately house # 4150, which is about 600 feet east of Judy Lane. Note that this is a change from the originally announced plan.
The rest of the south side of the road (from east of Judy Lane to Pearl Road, excluding intersection areas) will be poured on either Monday, October 9 or Tuesday, October 10. The intersection areas will be poured separately later in the week. Drive aprons are also scheduled to be poured later in the week.
Please note that long delays of up to 10-15 minutes will be encountered in the work zone during the two major concrete pouring operations. These delays are unavoidable, as the concrete trucks need to stop in the traffic lane to unload.
Further updates will be posted as the project progresses. Thanks for your continued patience as we work to complete this project.
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.
