Locust Road Improvements
Construction on Locust Road continues to move along nicely. The contractor has started paving the
first section of the road which runs from College Drive to just beyond 613 Locust Road. The north
half of this section was paved last week, and the south half will be paved starting on Friday,
October 16ᵗʰ. The contractor will be contacting residents to coordinate access to driveways during
the paving process. Thank you for your patience.

After the contractor has completed both sides of the first section of the road, they will start
paving the second section which will run from 613 Locust Road to Pine Crest Drive. This second
section will be a “rural” cross section, which means the road will be a few feet wider but will not
have any curb and gutter.

In this section, water will flow through road ditches and new culverts that have been installed
under driveways and at several areas that cross underneath
Locust Road.

As paving of the road progresses, the
contractor will also be working on paving new driveway approaches and installing new sidewalk.
Again, the contractor will notify
residents if access will be limited.

Thank YOU.
We greatly appreciate everyone’s continued patience through this disruptive construction season,
especially those directly impacted by reduced access or increased traffic due to a detour. We know
projects like these are an inconvenience, so we want to thank you again for your patience,
endurance, and understanding.

Quarry Street Improvements
Construction on the Quarry Street project started last week with the contractor installing the new
storm sewer at the east end of the street. The contractor will work from east to west and connect
to the existing pipe on College Drive.

Because of the flat grade through this area, large arch pipe will be used instead of regular
circular pipe. The arch pipe provides the same capacity as conventional circular pipe but can be
installed in areas where
conditions require shallower installation.
