Many of our older concrete streets consist of 5" of concrete on top of compacted soil. Due to the extensive failures of the existing pavement, the concrete street and underlying soil will be removed, and a new cross-section will be constructed, consisting of 4" of rock and 8" of concrete. Slabs will be tied together using epoxy-coated steel rebars. Half the street will be removed and replaced at a time, to mitigate the effect of construction on homeowners.
Project Location and Schedule
Fairoyal Drive will be replaced from approximately Eastroyal to Dunroyal, as shown in the map below. The project bid 2/2/18 and the low bidder was M&H Concrete. Their contract was approved by the Board of Aldermen on 2/12, and work is scheduled to start the week of 6/4. M&H intends to complete the four phases in the order of B, A, C, and D as shown below in the colors of pink, light blue, green, and dark blue.
Residents on Fairoyal should receive a letter/flyer prior to the start of work, and notification signs were set up on 5/22. The area marked with white paint will be replaced. One lane will be kept open to traffic during construction, so "No Parking" signage will be erected where appropriate. Please plan for delays during loading and unloading of dumptrucks and concrete trucks.
