[ARCHIVED] PRESS RELEASE: Impending Road Work Creekside Sec 3 - Poppy, Marigold and Rock Rose

ATTENTION: Residents, Police, Fire, EMS, School District, City Employees and others.
The work is scheduled to officially begin the week of February 6, 2017.  This work will be in the Marigold Street and Poppy Street area of the Oyster Bend Subdivision, and the Rock Rose Lane and Cinnamon Lane end of the Creekside Subdivision.  

In the Oyster Bend Subdivision, this work will be contained in the undeveloped area at the end of Poppy Street, and Marigold Street, however the new streets, and utilities will need to be tied into the existing systems so there will be some traffic disturbances while the contractor works in these areas.  The current asphalt alley will be removed during this phase.  This will create dead ends at both Marigold Street and Poppy Street until traffic can travel on the new streets.  City waste collection will be modified to account for this but no changes of level of service are anticipated.

In the Creekside Subdivision, there are no anticipated disturbances to the current traffic flows other than an increase in contractor traffic at the Rock Rose Lane and Cinnamon Lane intersection entering the worksite. 

Those properties along Poppy Street that abut this new construction will have a new drainage system being installed in the rear of the property to ensure proper drainage continues from the backyards. This new system will connect to the new drainage system that will be installed along the Poppy Street extension.

The main feeds for the water system will be from Rock Rose Lane and Marigold Street.  There will be a tie in to the water line near the existing fire hydrant on Marigold Street, and there are no water service interruption anticipated with these connections.

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 and exercise caution when travelling thru the detours in your neighborhood.

We apologize for any inconvenience these needed improvement changes may create for you. 

Sal Aguirre, P.E.
City Engineer
