The Contractor for this project is Bituminous Roadways Inc. The Contractor’s 24-hour emergency contact is Brandon Bistodeau at 651-358-5082. Property owners can also contact 911 in the event of any emergency. The City’s full-time project inspector is Jason Huebscher, who can be contacted to respond to specific questions or concerns and can be reached at 763-767-6570 (office) or 612-709-2704 (cell).
The Contractor plans to perform work this Saturday, August 5 between 8 am and 6 pm. Saturday work includes topsoil installations in Phases 1 and 2, and manhole adjustments in the Phase 3 area which are required prior to reclamation of the existing asphalt surface.
Work planned for the week of August 7 includes continuation of curb installations within the Phase 3 area, plus completion of remaining intersection valley gutters within Phases 1 and 2 (click here to view the project phasing map). Work on concrete driveways in Phase 3 will follow completion of curb installations in that area. Manhole and valve casting adjustments, required prior to final wear course paving, will take place in the Phase 2 area. Topsoil placements will continue in Phases 2 and 3 throughout the week with sod installation expected to start on Wednesday of next week.
Once the sod is installed, the Contractor will water and maintain for a period of 45 days starting from the date of installation. At the completion of 45 days, the Contractor is required to replace any dead sod. Property owners will be fully responsible for future maintenance of the new boulevard sod after the 45-day maintenance period. To keep your new lawn looking its best, water often, avoid mowing until the new grass is at least three inches long, and cut no more than 1/3 of the grass height.
