ATTENTION: Residents, Police, Fire, EMS, School District, City Employees and others.
As the contract work in your Woodland Park neighborhood winds down, your City Council and Mayor at their August 3, 2020 meeting gave approval to the appropriation of the cost savings in the existing closing contract toward the reconstruction and improvement of your street.
The reconstruction work will be similar to that provided to others in your neighborhood in the current contract which consists of demolition and replacement of street, sidewalk and driveway to the limits of the street right-of-way, approximately 16.5 feet back of the pavement curb line. Your driveway will be replaced to the existing width conditions unless a private arrangement can be made with the contractor for additional width, length or type.
The contractor (Matula & Matula) has agreed to extend this additional work under the current contract and will move in on the jobsite on Monday, September 21, 2020. The construction process will start with the traffic control barricade and signage installation along the work zone to be done first, planned to be the even number side of the street. Some saw cutting activity of pavement and driveways may proceed shortly after, ahead of the work to follow such as temporary parking stall placement in preparation for pavement removal.
The plan calls for a Three-Step half pavement removal and replacement process typical of most street reconstruction project to allow continued travel and access to your residence, although with some inconvenience and restricted parking to temporary parking stalls provided.
Because of COVID precautions, we will provide the affected property owners or resident with any information as needed through all our available communication media or by direct phone call to the engineering department at (979) 415-2413.
Expect the periodic traffic disruptions and restricted access through the work zone. Please observe construction zone regulations of the directional and speed limit signs being erected and being enforced by our police department. Please make every effort to make plans to use the alternate routes to your destinations and exercise caution when travelling thru the detours in your neighborhood.
Please relocate any parked vehicles or equipment not in daily use to alternate parking areas out of the work zone if planning to use during the work period in your area, as well as planning for alternate daily parking spots in the adjacent vicinity as possible, due to limited temporary parking stall space provided. We apologize for any inconvenience these needed improvement changes may impose on you.
