Washington Ave Update 5/13

 

I wanted to send a quick note to all of you with important schedule updates.  The primary purpose of this update is to provide a notice that work in Section B of the project (Willow Street to Frazee Street) will be starting next week.  The rain has not significantly slowed progress and Sellin Brothers will be substantially finished with the underground utility work in Section A (downtown) by the end of this week or the early part of next week.  In order to keep the progress moving, we will be moving work into Section B early next week.  The following are some important items for everyone to be aware of:

  • Traffic control and the detour will be set-up late this week and Monday.  This means signs will go up, but the road will not yet be closed.
  • Washington Avenue, from Willow to Frazee Street, will be closed to thru-traffic beginning early morning of Tuesday, May 19th
  • Closed to “Thru-Traffic” means that we are prohibiting the use of the roadway to general traffic.  However, residents, businesses, and customers will generally still be able to access businesses, with exception to immediate work areas.  We will be making every effort to maintain and provide access to businesses, when reasonable.  There will be times that access will not be possible.  We will try and communicate progress and access issues with everyone as work progresses.  We will provide access to all residential property during non-working hours and other times as possible.
  • There will be a moving construction zone with barricades on each end of active work areas.  This will prevent travel through the work zone.  However, properties north or south of the active work zone can get access from the appropriate end of the project segment (at Willow or Frazee)
  • A detour route will be posted that will divert traffic around the construction utilizing Lake Avenue.
  • Please obey all posted warnings and barricades.  These are for the protection of you, your vehicle, and the construction personnel.
  • Temporary public parking will be available in a portion of the Holy Rosary parking lot after school lets out for the year (after Memorial Day weekend).  Public may not use this lot until the school year is over.  Access to the lot will be from Lake Avenue.
  • The first item of work will include the removal of the street, curb, driveway approaches, and lighting.  Temporary gravel approaches will be installed to driveways.
  • The contractor plans to leave the existing sidewalk in place for as long as possible.  This will assist in providing pedestrian access to businesses and properties.
  • Initially all work will be from the dental office to Frazee Street.  We will not be doing any removals south of the dental office until a later date.  This means there will still be on street parking available in this area.
  • The construction of the underground utilities (sewer, water, and storm sewer) will begin after the removals are completed.  We anticipate this work to start late next week or following the Memorial Day weekend.

We will continue to provide updates regarding construction progress for both section A and B of the project.  Please forward this e-mail to anyone who might be interested in receiving the updates.  Anyone wishing to receive the updates can send me an email and I will add them to the distribution list.  Weekly construction meetings are held at LaBarista at 9:00 am every Tuesday.  In the meantime, please feel free to contact any of the following project staff with questions, comments, concerns, or special needs.

Washington Ave Update 5/5

Good Morning,

As part of the project phasing we have held off with significant work in the Front Street intersection.  The purpose of this was to reduce traffic and access impacts by leaving the intersection open as long as possible.  Progress is now at a point that the contractor will need to close the intersection and complete the underground utility installations, including removal of the steam system that crosses the intersection.

The Front Street intersection will be closed starting Wednesday, May 6.  Traffic control and detours will be adjusted as necessary.  If all goes to plan, the contractor will begin street grading/construction in this intersection soon after they complete the underground in this area.  This will allow us to reopen the intersection prior to other portions of Washington Avenue.  If we are unable to proceed with the street construction work, soon after the underground work, we will consider reopening the intersection temporarily with a gravel surface.

This closure will obviously create some changes to how the downtown can be accessed (particularly from TH 10).  You may want to notify delivery drivers to use the detour or alternate routes.  Please note that that the Frazee Street intersection will continue to be open to traffic.  Thanks for your continued cooperation.  We will soon be done with underground work and starting on street construction!  Please let me know if you have any questions or comments.  Thanks!

Washington Ave 4/14

As most of you know, we broke ground this morning on the reconstruction of Washington Avenue.  There has been a lot of planning and effort leading up to this point and we are finally at the point of construction!  I want to thank all of you for you communication and input up to this point.  I will be trying to send out periodic emails to all of you as another means of communication of project related updates.  If you are receiving this email you likely have a business or own a building adjacent to the project or you have been attending some of the planning meetings up to this point.  If you would prefer not to receive these e-mail please reply back to me and let me know.  Likewise, feel free to pass these on to others that may have interest in the project.  I am happy to add others to the mail list if you forward me names and email addresses.  I will try to limit these updates to no more than once or twice a week.

 

Now for a few updates and comments:

·         Washington Avenue from Front Street to Frazee Street was closed this morning with the beginning of the work.  Note that both of these intersections are open to traffic for the moment and will remain that way for the near term. Holmes Street is closed.

·         Traffic control was set up this morning which included a posted detour route and other signage to point downtown visitors in the right direction and to available parking areas.

·         One of the subcontractors (Hough Inc.) began preparatory work for some of the demolition and removals.  Today most of the activity was limited to mobilizing equipment and set-up.  They began sawing some of the pavement and sidewalk as well as pulverizing the street pavement, in preparation for removal.  Hough will begin removing sidewalk, curb, and street tomorrow.

·         As the sidewalks are removed, crews will begin setting up the temporary walk-ways and safety fence along the face of you buildings.  This will provide front door access during most of the construction.

·         Removals and demolition will take most of this week and no other significant work will take place.

·         The City’s electric utility crews removed street lighting.  The intersection lights will remain for the duration of the work.

·         Crews are working on setting up some temporary 2 hour parking on Holmes Street, between Lake Avenue and Washington Avenue.  The parking will be perpendicular to the north curb (facing the mall) and is signed for a two hour maximum.  This was done to try and provide some closer proximity parking for your patrons.  Please do not use this for any employee parking.  As a reminder please encourage your tenants and employees to park away from the project and leave the closer parking for customers and patrons.

·         Underground utility work will begin next Monday.  The contractor is planning for a suspension of water service on Monday afternoon.  They have been working on contracting impacted businesses.  More information will be sent out when details are available.

·         The weekly progress meeting (for public and impacted properties/businesses) will be tomorrow morning at 9:00 a.m. at LaBarista.  These meetings will be held every Tuesday at 9:00 a.m. and you are encouraged to attend, ask questions, and keep informed on the progress and upcoming work.
