Independence Rd. Phase 3 Project Update
Posted on Friday June 30, 2017
Here is the latest news and updates regarding the Independence Road Phase III project. Major construction began in April of 2016 and the target completion date was April 2, 2017 but due to numerous delays it is estimated the project will not be completed until early summer.
Pavement Solutions (PS) is the General Contractor for the construction of the roadway improvements. According to PS's revised construction schedule they showed June 30, 2017, as the date to be Substantially Complete, however, we are at this date and though two-way traffic has been re-established, substantial completion has not been achieved.  Since the Contractor has not made the revised deadline of 4/13/17 the City is assessing liquidated damages of $1,225/day against the Contractor's pay requests until the project is fully complete. 

Up coming work:

Two-way traffic with temporary stripping on Independence Rd. has been re-established. The final driving course of asphalt will not be paved until all auxiliary work is complete so as not to damage the final driving surface. 

PS is turning their attention to John Linn Pl. next but must finish the City Hall main driveway. They will be raising a stormwater inlet and regrading around the sides of John Linn Pl. A design change had been made here that will raise it by approximately 2' to improve the side slopes and eliminated the blind spot that has been created with the current excavation depth on John Linn Pl. 

With the closure of John Linn Pl., residents that use John Linn Pl. for access will have to use the old Nancy Lane that runs through the City Park for ingress/egress. This temporary closure and detour of John Linn Pl. should begin during the week of July 10th. 

Final grading, walking trail installation, retaining wall fencing and sodding along the roadway is all pending work that needs to be completed. 

We will post regular updates to this news feed to keep you posted on the latest project details. If you have additional questions feel free to contact the City Administrator, Michael Padella, at 636.441.2110 ext. 102 or by email
