Beginning Tuesday, April 24th, 2018 the contractor will begin the reconstruction of Veralta Drive by closing Veralta Drive from Primrose Drive to Orchard Drive.

For safety's sake, please stay away from the construction area. Heavy equipment will be moving back and forth on the closed street. It would be advisable to stay behind the sidewalk on the property side during the reconstruction work.

During the closure, alternate garbage pickup points will be required for residents who normally place automated collection carts within the closure area on Veralta Drive. Residents can place their collection carts on the open portion of Primrose Drive or Orchard Drive in the designated area during the street closure. This should be done on the normal collection day for that particular street.

Yard waste collection carts can be placed curbside at the same location as the garbage collection carts for Monday pickup. Yard waste may also be taken to the transfer station in any type of container when the transfer station is open.

Also during the road closure, rural type mailboxes will be removed and temporarily relocated. The contractor will coordinate the location of the relocated mailboxes with the U.S. Postal Service. Normally, all mailboxes are relocated at one end of the road closure. Once reconstruction is completed, the mailboxes will be returned to their original location. Please do not park adjacent to the relocated mailboxes. The residents will be responsible for removing any decorative attachments to the mailboxes and relocating any landscape plantings within the right-of-way. The contractor will be responsible for removing and temporarily relocating the mailbox and post only.

2018 Street Construction Project

During the construction season this year, 16 city streets will be reconstructed or restored. The work is funded by the Local Option Sales Tax. Reconstruction involves a total removal and replacement of the roadway, and underground utilities are replaced if needed. Often it requires closing sections of the road for two to three months. Restoration is typically an asphalt overlay, but could include fixing the curb or other smaller issues. Road closures for restoration are typically shorter or only partial closures.

West 4th Street (from Angie Drive to Hudson Road) and West 12th Street (from Clark Drive to College Street) will be our longer projects this year. West 4th Street construction will begin at Hudson Road and continue west to Chateau Court (Phase 1).  That section will be under a complete closure and is anticipated to be completed before the school year ends. When Phase 1 is complete, the contractor will continue west, closing the area from Chateau Court to Angie Drive (Phase 2) until August 2018. Phase 2 is planned to be reopened to traffic before school resumes. See image below.

Street Construction for Phase 1 and 2


Work on West 12th Street will begin at Clark Drive and continue east to Division Street (Phase 1). It will be closed until the school year ends. When Phase 1 is complete, the contractor will continue east from Division Street to Catherine Street (Phase 2). Phase 2 will include the intersections of Division Street and West 12th Street, and also
the intersection of West 12th Street and Catherine Street. This section will be under a complete closure until August 2018; it will reopen to traffic before school resumes. From September–November the contractor will work on the roadway from Catherine Street to College Street (Phase 3). See image below.
