Locust Road Improvements

It has been a very busy week of paving on Locust Road. This past Monday and Tuesday, crews paved
the northbound half of the road from 613 Locust Road to the Pine Crest Drive intersection. On
Friday (11/6) and Saturday (11/7), crews will be paving the southbound half of this same stretch.

During the week of November 9ᵗʰ, the contractor is planning to pave the intersection of Locust Road
and Pine Crest Drive. Just to the north of Pine Crest Drive, the contractor will also be working on
paving the transition area between the new, wider section of Locust Road and the existing road.
Weather permitting, the intersection of Pine Crest Drive and Locust Road should be open to traffic
sometime the week of November 16ᵗʰ.

As work on the street paving progresses, crews will continue to work on driveway approaches and the
new sidewalk that is being installed between College Drive and
Shady Lane.

Quarry Street Improvements

Crews are nearly finished with the installation of the new storm sewer pipe on Quarry Street. The
contractor is currently working on constructing a new intake structure on College Drive to aid in
capturing surface water from the street that will now be directed into the new storm sewer.

After the storm sewer work is complete, the portion of the street that has been removed will be
repaired. A new sidewalk will also be installed on the south side of Quarry Street from College
Drive to the east end of the project.

After the paver places the concrete, finish work follows close behind. This includes application of
curing compound, grooving, and cutting joints (photo courtesy
