2013 Road Program Update

November 18, 2014

The 2013 Road Program is now substantially complete.  All storm water systems have been installed, affected properties are mostly restored and all of the roads have been paved.  Residents can expect to continue to see crews from JDM on site over the next month as they address “punch list “items.  These items may be cleaning of storm water inlets, patching of chipped concrete, resetting of moved mailboxes and patching of any puddles in the roads.  Due to the lateness of the year, JDM will be required to return in the spring to attend to any poor grass growth or incomplete lawn restoration areas.

Work continues in the Hedgerow Woods neighborhood. Work is 100% complete on Rice, Hedgerow, Floral, Valley, Kirby and Peaceful Drives.

On Walton Drive, Fletcher Drive and the remaining portion of Bernard D rive (Share Drive to Angela Avenue), the contractor is expected to pave the roads wearing course the week of October 20, 2014 as well.

 

Sept 11, 2014

Work continues in the Hedgerow Woods neighborhood. Work is 100% complete on Hedgerow, Floral, Kirby and Peaceful Drives as well as Valley Road.

Installation of curbing and the new road (up to the base layer of pavement) was recently completed on Bernard Drive from Angela Avenue to Share Drive. Due to the length of this particular road, it is being reconstructed in two halves. The contractor is now removing old sidewalks and aprons and has begun pouring new work in the first half. At the other half of Bernard Drive from Share Drive to Stony Hill Road, the contractor is installing storm piping and inlets which should be completed by the third week of September. That will be followed by the under drain system, new curbs, road surface, sidewalks, aprons and driveway transitions.

On Walton Drive, Fletcher Drive and Rice Drive crews have completed the installation of new sidewalks and aprons and are presently working to restore driveways and front lawns. Most of this work is completed with the exception of the wearing course on the driveways.

Once the previously mentioned work is completed, we expect the contractor to "drop back" and pave the wearing course on the remaining roads: Walton Drive, Fletcher Drive, Rice Drive and Bernard Drive. Residents on those streets will receive a notification letter from the contractor before that work begins so cars can be removed for the paving operations.
