Work on the odd number half of Laurel Street has been substantially completed and the change over to the even numbered half has been scheduled to begin on Monday, April 7, 2014.
The work activity will begin during the latter part of this week with traffic control barricade and signage being reset along the work zone to redirect single lane traffic flow in the proper direction along the newly paved half pavement from Azalea to Elm Street.
Preparatory work will run concurrently with the installation of temporary parking stalls for those displaced by the work side change. New side residents may return to their normal use of their driveway for parking. Following this, the removal of the old pavement will be accompanied with erection of temporary pedestrian access crossings at designated locations. By now, you should be familiar of what to expect during this final construction period, but we remain open to providing you with information to your questions.
We provided detailed information of the construction at the public town meeting held in December 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 construction zone regulations of the directional and speed limit signs being erected and being enforced by our police department. Please make every effort to make plans to use the alternate routes to your destinations. Please exercise all caution when making detours through neighborhoods.
We apologize for the inconveniences that these much needed improvement changes create for you.
