Independence Rd. Phase 3 Project Update
Posted on Monday July 24, 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. A recently revised construction schedule from PS shows July 28, 2017, as the date to be complete and begin addressing any punch list items.  PS continues to be assessed liquidated damages of $1,225/day against the Contractor's pay requests until the project is fully complete. 

Up coming work:

PS is applying the final driving course to John Linn Pl. today and will be closing it to traffic in order to allow the asphalt to cool and setup. Local residents of John Linn Pl. and Nancy Ln. will have to once again use old Nancy Lane to access their homes. This should be the final closure and John Linn Pl. should open back up on Tuesday, July 25. 

The final driving course of asphalt for Independence Rd. will not be paved until all major work is completed along the roadway sides so as to not damage the final driving surface. Asphalt paving of the trail and the final driving surface of Independence Rd. should occur this week. 

Final sodding of dirt areas will hold off until later this fall, as if the sod is laid now it will not survive the summer heat. The contractor will be responsible for touching up the graded areas should any erosion occur in the meantime. 

There is still final grading and even some touch up grading that must occur on the north side of Independence Rd. However, if you live along the roadway and have a question about how your property is shaping up please contact City Hall and express your concern. 

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
