Westwood Cemetery Drainage and Paving Improvements

The City has awarded a contract to Crossroads Asphalt in the amount of $262,998 for drainage and pavement improvements in Westwood Cemetery.   The work includes:

  • The installation and/or replacement of 22 catch basins and 4 yard drains
  • The installation of 2,120’ of variously sized drainage lines in 8 segments.  These are located adjacent to existing roadways and connect to existing storm lines that discharge to the swale along the west side of the Cemetery, the Pond or to Plum Creek.
  • +/- 1.57 miles of existing asphalt driveways will be pulverized in place.  That material will be graded and re-compacted to establish a crown in the centerline of each roadway.  2” of new asphalt will be placed to complete the new drives. This paving methodology effectively recycles the existing roadway in place with the advantages of reducing trucking costs while improving both the pavement base structure and drainage.

Drainage improvement work began in early October.  The Asphalt work was completed November 24th.  The contractor will be performing some minor grading and clean up through early December.  Final grading and seeding will occur in the Spring.   Please be cautious around all construction activities.

  • Central Business District Sidewalk Improvements

As many of you know, the contractor who had the paver installation contract went out of business before the work under that contract could be properly completed.  In reviewing the product, the work and the options, City Council has directed staff to contract for removal of the composite pavers on South Main and for their replacement with conventional brick pavers.  That work has been designed and bid, City Council has approved the authorizing legislation on the first two readings.  Final reading is anticipated for Monday, November 3rd.  The actual construction work will take place in the spring of 2015.  Remedial work to temporarily repair unfinished areas should be complete by the end of October.

 

Thank you for your continued patience!
