Street and Drainage Improvements

Updated Street and Drainage Improvements

Work has begun our street and drainage improvements.


Partridge is 100% complete.
Amanda Court is about 70% complete.
Other drainage projects such as The Willows and Rosebrook will be bid out in the Fall 2018 with construction anticipated to start late Winter 2018 – Spring 2019. Waterton bids were opened 10/4/18. At this time, we also anticipate carrying out miscellaneous culvert repairs. The Blackhawk Creek crossing complete and had been load rated. Ditch cleaning will be bid out again in October for winter work.


The links below show what streets are currently designated for base repair, asphalt overlay or seal coating. Hagan Road has been removed from the project at this time because the heavy residential construction traffic will damage repairs done at this time and would not be the best use of funds. Since the overlay work will not be done on Hagan those materials and funds will be transferred to other areas that are in need of work based upon greatest need.

2018 Seal Coat & Crack Seal Program.pdf

Asphalt Overlay work began 7-23-18 with substantial completion anticipated 11-12-18. 50% of the base repair work has been completed and one street has been milled and overlaid.  Rain has caused delays with this project. 
ONYX Seal Coat is scheduled to begin 9-4-18. Anticipated completion in 30 days; Contractors are coordinating schedules to ensure all needed base repairs are done first. Because of the rain delays with the base repairs this project has also experienced delays and the ONYX Seal Coat is now scheduled to begin on 9/17/18. The crack seal work, which is preperation for ONYX Seal Coat, is 100% complete.  
Dews Drive anticipated construction Spring/Summer 2019
