SMITH ROAD PROJECT: TENATIVE START DATE OF MID-AUGUST: FURTHER NOTICE AS MORE INFORMATION IS OBTAINED.
Questions and discussions from the Smith Road project open house on June 24th, 2015.
Mailboxes: We have temporary mailboxes on saw horses if need be, but the contractor should keep them in place but mail service will not be disrupted. After work is done Engineer will do a walk through before final payment, and if there are any problems (citizens don't like driveway millwork), then it will be corrected or mailboxes, etc. by the contractor.
Description of Work: Widening at TowHill will add a foot of pavement on each side and another foot of gravel. Two feet on each side and four foot total.
The pavement will be prime coated with oil and stone berming to contain the rocks.
Since the curve is being widened so curve will be 22 feet wide and therefore lined (must be at least 20 foot to be striped).
Work to be completed by contract by 8/31/15, but Hawbaker feels it will be two days widen and two days to pave, Don thinks an outside of seven. Hawbaker says end of July or first part of August.
Curve Widening: Traffic continues
Paving: Since it’s the whole width, and the seam will be, a minimal disruption, but some may be sent around for a day around two hours.
All work in Township ROW (is 16.5 feet from centerline on each side per deed of dedication)
Will be informing people when the actual date of start.
Speed: Will be redoing speed study after it’s done and will be doing a speed study the next two weeks before it’s paved. Don says it is right now 25 mph on this curve and Don says he does not think it will increase, but will verify by speed study after it is done to show if this is correct.
Notification of Services: Contractors will notify: EMS, Fire, Police and CATA, but Don will be doing also.
Don has signage that he will post (11 x 17) at Charlotte and Tow Hill both directions stating: “Road to be paved next week.” We also will contact through snail mail and have asked everyone at the meeting for emails.
