Road Construction Update

This week, the concrete work on the south side of Highway 13 was finished. The contractor paved Duluth Ave south of Highway 13 and installed the electrical bases.

 Next week, in addition to working on restoration south of Highway 13, there will be a five-day closure of Duluth Ave SE from Highway 13 to the Subway entrance, as well as a closure of the Anna Trail access to Duluth Ave SE. The closure will be in effect from 7:00am on Monday, May 20th to 5:00pm on Friday, May 24th. The contractor will remove bituminous and concrete, install storm sewer, and widen the road. Duluth Ave will be reopened by 5:00 pm on May 24th with a partial gravel surface, which will be in place for about two weeks before the pavement is placed.

 This closure will shorten the overall construction timeframe by 1-2 weeks, as the contractor will be able to lay storm sewer without the difficulty of working around open traffic. The contractor is working toward being substantially completed, with all roadways reopened for traffic, by an estimated date of June 21st. This would be ahead of schedule.
