2019 Street Improvement Updates

July 19, 2019

Construction has begun on this year’s street improvement project which covers the Partridge Estates and Heather Ridge neighborhoods. The improvements include miscellaneous storm sewer/sanitary sewer/water main repairs and replacement, replacement of isolated sections of structurally damaged curb and gutter, repaving of the asphalt pavement section, and installation of uniform street lighting. It also includes replacing the top surface of pavement on Helmo Avenue from 15th Street to Upper 23rd Street.
T.A. Schifsky & Sons, Inc. is the Contractor for this project. They have successfully completed many similar projects for the City.  This work will be done in phases by area to help minimize disruption. All project work is scheduled to be complete by early September.

As construction progresses, please use caution traveling within the project area.  Also, please do not park vehicles on the street from 7AM to 7PM within the project area unless instructed to by the Contractor to accommodate driveway work. This will help the Contractor to work more efficiently, and will create a safer work zone. Thank you, as always, for your ongoing patience and cooperation.
