Exterior Excavation

Week of 7/5 update -  None completed this week.

Week of 7/12 – Will continue work.

Lathrup Village proposed work for the week of 06/14/2021:

Roads

Week of 6/07 update –The contractor completed pavement removal on San Jose and Wiltshire and started removals on Alhambra. The aggregate base and 1st lift of asphalt was placed on all three streets.  The contractor started pavement removals on Santa Barbara from San Jose to Alhambra.  The contractor is scheduled to work on Santa Barbara this Saturday (06/12).

We are asking for residents to refrain from placing garbage on San Jose, Wiltshire, and Alhambra on 06/14 and use the designated locations instead.  It is preferred to keep all heavy vehicles off the newly paved streets for a week.

Landscape restoration is being delayed due the very hot temperatures.

Week of 6/14 -  The contractor is scheduled to continue work on Santa Barbara pavement removal, excavation, and aggregate base placement throughout the week. If all goes well, Santa Barbara may be paved late in the week. A detour has been established for northbound and southbound Santa Barbara.

Exterior Excavation

Week of 6/07 update -  Exterior excavations continued throughout the week on the section south of I-696. They are still having trouble with MISS – DIG staking which has been delaying the work.

Week of 6/14 – Exterior excavation will continue throughout the week on the section south of I-696.

Hydrants

Week of 6/14 – No work is expected. Waiting on materials.

Gate Valves

San Jose required some undercutting due to poor subgrade conditions. The contractor plans to continue removals and excavation on San Jose and Wiltshire and to install aggregate base on San Jose on Saturday (6/5).

Week of 6/7 -  ASI is scheduled to continue group 2 removals, excavation, and aggregate base placement throughout the week. They will continue with Alhambra and move on to Santa Barbara (north). I discussed with their project manager possibly placing the HMA base on San Jose, Wiltshire, and Alhambra prior to beginning removals on Santa Barbara to protect their aggregate base while the work on Santa Barbara takes place. That will likely take place near the end of the week if they can get the work scheduled.

Updates…Lathrup Village proposed work for the week of 05/24/2020:

Roads

Week of 5/17 update – Glenwood west from Santa Barbara to Woodsworth Way was graded and paved.  The section of Glenwood from Woodworth Way to Red River required additional excavation and aggregate base along with undercutting due to poor soils and was paved.  The contractor is working on removing certain driveways and replacing some culverts.  The contractor hopes to start some of the minor ditch grading and replacing driveways and sidewalks on Sunset, Avilla, Santa Barbara, and Cambridge.

Please be reminded that concrete driveways cannot be driven on for a minimum of 5 days after the concrete is placed.

Week of 5/24 - The schedule has ASI removing and replacing driveways on Glenwood west starting on Monday 5/24 and finishing on Tuesday 5/25, performing any required base repairs, and placing the 2nd lift of asphalt on all the group 1 streets starting on Wednesday and hopefully finishing on Friday. NOTE: Trash Pick-up will be available on Monday, 05/24.

Weekend Update 5-14-2021

Glenwood(west) was not paved today (Friday, 5/14). On Monday, contractors plan to finish grading Glenwood and pave it Tuesday. They plan to begin driveways, culverts, and ditching on Wednesday or Thursday.


Lathrup Village proposed work for the week of 05/17/2020:

Roads

Week of 5/10 update - The 1st lift of asphalt was placed on all the Group 1 streets (this assumes Glenwood east was paved Friday afternoon or Saturday). The far west section of Glenwood required a change due to the existing silty clay that pumped significantly while proof rolling.  This section was changed to a Type A road with earth excavation and 10” aggregate.  In addition, some undercutting was required.  Glenwood east also had a smaller section that pumped significantly during the paving operations.  It was decided to “gap” this section and perform an undercut to strengthen the subbase.  All the remaining streets paved out pretty good.  PLEASE note that the 1st lift doesn’t always look real pretty.  The 2nd lift will look much better and is a different asphalt material.

Week of 5/17 - The schedule has ASI starting to remove and replace driveways, sidewalks, culverts, and some landscape restoration.  Please be reminded that we require contractor’s equipment to stay off the new asphalt for 5 days.  We will again ask residents to have their vehicles off the streets from 7 am to 7 pm.

NOTE: Trash Pick-up will be available on Monday, 05/17Please request Tringali to pick-up the paved streets first so they have an empty load (less weight on the new asphalt).

Exterior Excavation

Week of 5/10 Update - Sunde completed 7 excavations.  Miss-Dig has staked out sections of stage 2A (South of 11 Mile/I-696)

Week of 5/17 -  Sunde is waiting for additional stop boxes to be delivered and will continue with excavations south of 696.

Hydrants

Week of 5/10 update – Sunde completed 5 hydrant installations / refurbishments.  They are currently waiting on materials (4 to 8 weeks delivery).

Week of 5/17 – No work expected. Waiting on materials.

Gate Valves

Week of 05/10 Update – No work was completed.  Waiting on ASI to complete paving.

Week of 5/17 – No work expected due to paving.

Staff will be updating the website tonight with the most up to date information we have.

DISCOLORED WATER NOTICE TO RESIDENTS:

Occupants in the area may experience discolored water for several hours after the repair has been completed.

Brown, rusty water is caused by iron and other materials stirred up in the water mains. This is most often caused by a water main break or annual maintenance. If you are experiencing this problem:

  • Turn on the COLD-water faucet at the lowest level of your home (nearest the water meter) and let the COLD-water run for approximately 10 minutes.
  • This should clean out the residue in your service line, and clear the problem.
  • The water is safe to drink, but do not wash whites, since they will discolor. 
  • Flush the water lines that feed the washing machine and dishwasher by running each through one cycle before using.
  • Empty and clean automatic ice makers.

The City Police Department will be patrolling the alternate parking areas more often during construction and will not ticket vehicles parked in the road overnight.

Lawn Irrigation Systems - Property Owners who have irrigation systems located within ten (10) feet of the edge of the roadway should mark the location of any sprinkler heads so they are not damaged during construction.
