EAST SIDE RELIEF SEWER – IN THE LOOP

GOOD EVENING EVERYONE!

The BIG excavator arrived today.  We should be seeing it in action tomorrow.  But, before that happens, the Contractor will be performing more watermain valve work.  Tomorrow morning, a valve will be cut into the main on Whitman at Gulf.  Notices for water outages have already been delivered to the affected homes.  As for traffic, one lane will be maintained but delays are possible.  Avoid this intersection if possible in the morning or leave a few minutes earlier.

As for the BIG excavator, work will hopefully continue with installing the 78” pipe.  The NORTH Crestview Dr. will be closed (work at 1181 Gulf Rd) for the remainder of Monday and again on Tuesday until the Contractor clears the intersection.  Please make note…use the other two streets (Crestview Dr. South and Nottingham) to enter and exit the Crestview area.

Last Friday, the Contractor had both Crestview Dr. intersections blocked causing delays for residents in that area.   We hope to minimize that occurrence or better direct residents as to which drive should be used. (contractor had multiple tasks going on in preparation for work this week).

 

Gulf Road between Hilliard & Burns Roads REMAINS CLOSED day and night to all traffic except the neighbors, emergency vehicles and busses.

Local traffic (the residents that live in the neighborhood adjacent to the closed section of Gulf Road) is permitted to pass through the immediate excavation site after work hours with CAUTION.

GULF ROAD WATERMAIN WORK:

*No start date yet*     I just want to give you a head’s up…Valley of the Eagles is preparing to move forward with watermain work on Gulf Road.  An actual start date is not known as of today, but you will be notified when we find out.  This work will force traffic onto Whitman.

PLEASE DRIVE SAFELY!!!

East Side Relief Sewer Residents – IN THE LOOP

GOOD EVENING EVERYONE!

The Contractor is moving along with construction…it definitely takes time to install 78” pipe 25-30 feet deep.

No work tomorrow (Friday).  Monday, the contactor will be blocking off the North Crestview Drive entrance.  Here’s the Road Closure Advisory:

Road Closed:  Gulf Road, Between Burns Road & Hilliard Road

Update beginning Monday, March 13, 2017Excavation and pipe-laying has progressed southward to the north drive of Crestview Drive and 1181 Gulf Road. Expect heavy machinery and debris from this worksite to the Waste Water Plant, as WWPC is the staging area for supplies and equipment. All lanes of travel remain closed. ONLY EMS and school busses will be accommodated on Gulf Road, but expect delays until machinery is cleared to allow passage.  Crestview Drive area will be accessible only via the south drive of Crestview Drive.  Gulf Road between Hilliard & Burns Roads REMAINS CLOSED day and night! Only emergency vehicles are permitted passage through a temporary opening through the active work sight after work hours (7A-8P.)

Local traffic (the residents that live in the neighborhood adjacent to the closed section of Gulf Road) is permitted to pass through the immediate excavation site after work hours with CAUTION.  Originally, it was anticipated that the local residents would be able to pass along the excavation, but with the truck traffic, equipment, and pipe staging, it is for the safety of the residents and contractor that the road continue to be closed adjacent to the 25-30 foot excavation hole.  Equipment will be moved for busses and emergency vehicles.  

Residents in the Crestview area will need to use Crestview south to access Gulf Road while the north entrance is blocked.

 

GULF ROAD WATERMAIN WORK:

I just want to give you a head’s up…Valley of the Eagles is preparing to move forward with watermain work on Gulf Road.  An actual start date is not known as of today, but you will be notified when we find out.  This work will force traffic onto Whitman.

 

THIRD STREET PROJECT:

And for those who travel downtown Elyria, work on the rehabilitation of Third Street has started.  Watch for detours, lane closures and traffic delays in this area.

 Continue to send in your suggestions, comments, questions!!

 Until then….

 PLEASE DRIVE SAFELY!!!
