Street Resurfacing Project
The 2019 Street Resurfacing Project
The first phase of work is installation of curbs at select locations (intersections) along Briarbrook Trail. Curbs were installed the week of June 24th. Paving of Briarbrook was completed Tuesday/Wednesday July 2nd/3rd. Backfilling of curbs took place during the week of July 8th.
Gray Drive was a concrete street with an asphalt overlay. The asphalt was removed on Monday 7/1, and the underlying concrete was evaluated, then marked for repairs. The repairs were significant, and work was delayed while waiting for utility locates. Duraseal brought in Sweetens Concrete Services as a subcontractor, due to the extent of the required repairs. Sweetens began removals on 7/22 and pouring concrete on one side 7/25. More work was done at the intersection with Point Oak on 8/1. The rest of the bad concrete was removed Monday and Tuesday 8/5 and 8/6, and poured back in on Wednesday 8/7, per the notification that occurred via the electronic message panel, to expect delays. This newly-poured concrete base needed one week to cure, after which the street was fully reopened to traffic. Paving of the asphalt surface course took place Monday 8/19, and it is now reopen to traffic. Thank you for your patience.
The work in Royal Acres will start Thursday 8/22 with the removal of old asphalt from Viewroyal, Crestroyal, and Fairoyal Drive Court. The milling machine will also perform an "edge mill" on Kenroyal and Gateroyal, in order to create a new joint for laying asphalt. The milling process moves fairly quickly, so traffic will be able to get through, and residents will have access to driveways. PLEASE HAVE ALL VEHICLES OFF THE STREET BY 7AM. Before new asphalt can be placed, curb ramps must be upgraded to ADA standards. So there will be several weeks of other work before significant street closures occur for paving.
