Mead Street Reconstruction


July 2015

The City’s contractor, D’Allessandro Corporation, will begin to mobilize to the area during the week of July 13th, weather permitting, to begin reconstructing the sidewalks and roadway. We estimate the reconstruction of the sidewalks will take approximately 5-7 weeks. Final roadway paving is scheduled for August/September 2015. Notices will be distributed in advance of any partial/full road closures.

What to Expect During Construction
• General work hours will be 7AM to 4 PM, Monday-Friday.
• “No Parking” signs will be posted at least 24 hours in advance of construction; please be sure to check posted signs for exact dates and times.
• When work occurs directly in front of driveways or entryways, the contractor will coordinate access directly with residents.
• City services will continue uninterrupted and emergency vehicles will maintain access at all times.

June 2015

Crews anticipate on mobilizing to the area by the end of the month to begin reconstructing the sidewalks on the south side of Mead Street. More details will follow prior to mobilization.
