What Happened Onsite Last Week:
SD Ireland continued excavating for subbase and placing subbase between Maple Street and King Street and the King Street intersection Additionally, excavation continued for rain gardens, tree grates, soil cells, and pervious pavers on the east and west side of the road between King Street and Main Street. DiStefano Landscaping was onsite for part of the week working on placing soil cells and drainage aggregate for pervious pavers and tree grates. SD Ireland installed a catch basin on the north east side of the King Street intersection and placed storm pipe.
Next Week Look Ahead:
SD Ireland will be fine grading the new subbase in the King Street intersection and between King Street and Maple Street. Di Stefano Landscaping will be onsite working on soil cells and rain gardens between King Street and Main Street. Existing sidewalk will be removed and crews will be excavating and placing subbase for under the new sidewalk on the west side of the block between Main Street and King Street. SD Ireland will be excavating and placing subbase east on Maple Street from St. Paul Street to just west of the Eagles Landing Parking Lot. Paving will take place, including at the King Street intersection, Maple Street intersection and St. Paul between King Street and Maple Street. This is currently scheduled for Thursday and Friday but is weather dependent.
King Street will be back to normal 2 way traffic by Monday. The crosswalks should be back to normal around the intersection Friday or Saturday. The Hilton/TD Bank exit will change to outlet onto King Street over the weekend. This will likely continue for most of the week. There is a possibility that it may change back to exiting onto Main Street for a few days. The west sidewalk between King Street and Main Street will be closed to through pedestrian traffic. Maple Street will be closed from St. Paul Street to Church Street for part of the week, local traffic only will be allowed on the road entering from Church Street.. The Eagles Landing garage will be open and accessible from Church Street.
