CAP2010 Water Main Improvements
Contractor: FDM Contracting, Inc.
The city's contractor has been authorized to use the northeast section of VFW Park for construction staging and material storage. The area will be fenced off for public safety. Vehicles will enter/exit using Campbell Road and Sixth Street. Once the project is complete, the disturbed areas will be re-graded and restored with topsoil and seed. The contractor will also make some park improvements by planting new trees and installing new picnic tables.
Fifth Street - The week of August 3rd, the contractor plans to back-fill where the new driveway approaches were installed between Knowles and and Kayser. They will also be pouring new sidewalks and ramps. Between Irving and Alexander, the contractor plans to remove, grade and prep driveway approaches, sidewalk and pavement sections for new concrete.
S. Rembrandt Avenue - Two final water main connections will be scheduled this week. Any affected residents will be notified the day beforehand, via door hanger, with the time and duration of the water shut-off. The contractor also plans to pour the new concrete road on the west side of the street, followed by driveway approaches and sidewalk.
Seventh Street - The contractor will be back-filling the new driveway approaches, and pouring new roadway, sidewalks and ramps.
S. Altadena Avenue - This week the contractor will continue addressing water services that are lead or galvanized. Once complete the two final water main connections will be scheduled. Affected residents will be notified the day beforehand, via door hanger, with the shut off time and duration.
S. Vermont Avenue - The contractor will be transferring individual water services to the new main this week and addressing lead or galvanized services.
Helene Avenue - The east side of Helene Avenue, at Brockton Avenue and Dallas Avenue, will be closed for approximately 2-3 weeks while new concrete is poured and cured. The contractor will be restoring these two intersections in halves, instead of quarters, to help expedite the project prior to school beginning. The contractor will also be restoring the northeast corner of Barrett & Helene mid-week, but traffic will still be able to proceed through the intersection with caution.
Alternative Route: For residents of Brockton and Dallas, use Stephenson Highway to Barrett Avenue to head west out of the neighborhood.
Longfellow Avenue - The new water main is installed and will finish undergoing testing this week. Once complete the first water main connection will be scheduled. Any residents affected by the shut-off will receive a notice the day beforehand, via door hanger, with the time and duration.
