Middlebury Projects in Construction Updates as of Aug. 5, 2021
Southwest Quadrant Infrastructure (Westlake Estates) Project –Selge Construction assembled three crews to help complete the installation of the water main on both the north and south sides of US 20.
Selge Construction is scheduling with their subcontractor, Milestone Contractors, to pave CR 35 north of US 20 on Thursday, August 5. Milestone is scheduled to pave CR 35 from Claire Lane to US 20 on Monday, August 9, and Tuesday, August 10, but this schedule may have to be modified due to unforeseen circumstances.
Next week, one of the Selge Construction crews will be working to install the water main along Staci Lane from Claire Lane north to the cul-de-sac, and the other crew will be installing sanitary sewer along Claire Lane from Staci Lane east.
Krider Restrooms – Joe Bowman Construction has a couple of items to complete. We are anticipating the restrooms to be operational within the next week or so.
2021-01 Asphalt Paving Project – Milestone Contractors started with concrete curbing and sidewalk removals this week on Spring Valley Road and Spring Crossing Drive. Then the removal crew will move to River Park Drive. Concrete sidewalk and curb installation will follow the removal process, and then the paving is anticipated in early September 2021. Here is a list of the streets to be milled and paved:
- Spring Valley Road from the Dead End to Spring Arbor Drive
- Spring Crossing Drive from Spring Valley Road to Heritage Drive
- Brown Street from the Dead End to Lawrence Street
- Winslow Street from Main Street to State Street
- River Park Drive – the entire loop
Brown Street, Bristol Street, and Warren Street Reconstruction –Milestone crews installed the topsoil and asphalt base and intermediate layers of asphalt this week. Brown Street and Bristol Street will be opened to traffic late today (August 5). The brick pavers will not be installed for two weeks in the parking area along Memorial Park. We will make sure to have this area roped off during the Summer Festival. The remaining items to finalize then will be the asphalt surface layer in early to mid-September, installation of traffic signal loops, pavement markings, and mulched seeding.
