Library Sculpture

Check out the new sculpture by the Library.  The artist is Hans Gilsdorf.  The piece’s temporary name is “Child with Book”.    At the moment, it weighs about 16 tons, but will weigh more when it’s complete.  It will have a dark bronze finish when it is complete, and is meant to be interactive, so the people can sit on it and read or have their picture taken.

Washington Ave Update 8/3/15

Progress continues in Section B (Willow to Frazee) of the Washington Avenue project.  It’s safe to say we are over the hump and just about fully completed with the work.  The contractors have continued to address some of the minor clean-up items in the downtown area and should have most of that work complete in the next week or so.  The following is a summary of progress and anticipated work in Section B:

  • The concrete subcontractor spent last week finishing the remaining sidewalks, driveways, and pavement.  All concrete work is now complete and cured.  All driveways and sidewalks are cured enough handle vehicle traffic.  Everyone is free to access their property with vehicles.  The only exception is those driveways that have a drop off behind the sidewalk and require an asphalt patch (which will be completed tomorrow).
  • The landscaping subcontractor (HDQ) has been onsite since last week working on installing the boulevard irrigation and preparing the boulevards for turf restoration.  As of today the irrigation is complete on the west side of the road.  Also, the first load of sod was delivered and the crew is in the process of sodding the west side of the road.  The west side of the road, with the exception of trees will be completed by tomorrow morning sometime.
  • HDQ will start working on the irrigation on the east side of the road and preparing boulevards for turf tomorrow.  We are tentatively planning to place the topsoil on the eastside tomorrow.  Work will continue this week on the east side of the road depending on the level of traffic resulting from the annual We-Fest influx.  Whatever is not completed this work will be completed next week.
  • The paving subcontractor will be onsite Tuesday morning to complete the remaining driveway pavement.
  • City electric crews have finished installing all of the lighting on the project.  All lights should be operational tonight.
  • The signing subcontractor was on site today to finish installing the remaining signs on the project.
  • The striping was onsite today making preparations for the pavement markings.  This work will be completed this evening and tomorrow morning when traffic is light.
  • Crews will work on cleaning the project site tomorrow afternoon in preparation for opening the road to general traffic.  We have scheduled to open the road by Wednesday morning.  At this point we will remove the detour and most of the traffic control barricades and the road will be open to all traffic.  We will leave a line of cones/barrels on the east 1/3 of the roadway to allow the landscaping operations to continue under traffic.  Accordingly there will be no parking on the east side of the road until this work is complete (sometime next week).

A couple of notes on the new sod:

  • Irrigation has been installed throughout the project so there is no need for you to help water the new sod. Irrigation will initially be set to water the boulevard area and the outer portion of your front yard.  Sometime next spring the irrigation system will be adjusted to water only the boulevard area.
  • Please do not mow the new sod for at least 3 weeks.  It will be a bit long but it needs to be left undisturbed while initially rooting it.  Once you start mowing please raise your mower decks to approximately  2-inches higher than normal and gradually lower your mower height over the next couple of mowing. It is also a good idea to bag it the first time if you have the ability to.
  • The City/County street department uses salt during the winter which can settle onto the sod and harm it.  Watering the sod early in the spring will help rinse and dilute any salt that has accumulated in the sod.
  • Pets:  Spots will develop on the sod from pet urination. Lightly water these areas to dilute the effects of the urine.
  • If your sod starts to turn brown, make sure to water it.  Brown areas can be restored if not left dry for an extended period.
  • After acceptance of the sod by the City we cannot replace dead or damaged sod.  If you feel that that your sod is not acceptable, please notify us prior to September 1, 2015.  Your assistance with the new sod will help ensure you have a healthy new front yard.

Once again I want to thank all of you for your cooperation and understanding during this work.  I know it has been less the convenient but the improvement was needed and has turned out very well.  Please let me know if you have any questions.  Thanks!
