ROAD CLOSING PHASE 1 STEP 1 HICKORY STREET FROM OLEANDER TO WALNUT

P R E S S    R E L E A S E

   NOTICE TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC OF IMPENDING ROAD CLOSING

PHASE 1 STEP 1 HICKORY STREET FROM OLEANDER TO WALNUT

Work on the underground piping and services in all three blocks of Hickory Street from Mimosa to Oleander Street segment have been substantially completed and it now moves into the pavement reconstruction portion of the work which has been scheduled to begin on Monday, March 25, 2019.

Step 1 of the pavement removal will be continued on the even number side of Hickory Street from 214 Walnut to 310 Hickory.

The work activity will begin with traffic control barricades and signage being reset along the work zone to redirect single lane traffic flow in the proper direction from West to East along remaining half pavement of these segments.

Preparatory work will run concurrently with the installation of temporary parking stalls for those displaced by the work side closure. Open side residents will have normal use of their driveways for parking.  Due to the limited parking spaces relative to cars per household, please make every effort to find alternative parking places to allow for a fair distribution to your immediate neighbors. Please relocate any recreation or work equipment to alternate storage parking areas to have access to these as you use them.   Following this, the removal of the old pavement will be accompanied with installation of temporary pedestrian access crossings at designated locations.

We provided detailed information of the construction at the public town meeting held in October 2018 and will provide the affected property owners or public in general with any information as needed through all our available communication media and by direct phone call to the engineering department at (979) 415-2413.

Expect, the periodic traffic disruptions and restricted access through the work zone. Please observe the construction zone regulations of the directional and speed limit signs being erected and being enforced by our police department.

Please be considerate of your neighbor’s safety as well as your own as you share the street into and out of Hickory Street. Please make every effort to make plans for the use of alternate routes to your destinations. We appreciate your patience and apologize for any inconveniences these needed improvement changes may create for you.

Sincerely,

Sal Aguirre, P.E.

City Engineer
