2018 Road and Utility Reconstruction Update
Poplar Drive paving schedule: The Village’s contractor (Payne & Dolan) is scheduled to pave Poplar on Saturday, September 8 beginning at 8:00 am. Paving was set back one day due to the wet weather event on Wednesday, September 5. Paving activities will begin at Bradley Road and continue north to Dean Road. A sticky tar-like substance (tack coat) will be placed on the road prior to paving but will be done in close proximity to the paver so that as paving progresses the tack coat will be applied in front of it thereby reducing the occurrence of residents driving through the tack coat and tracking it up their driveways. Residents should refrain from driving on the freshly paved asphalt until after the cold rolling is completed (there will be two rollers – a larger roller that vibrates as it rolls and the smaller roller – after the smaller roller finishes its job residents can drive on the asphalt). Residents should also avoid sharp turns on the asphalt until 24 hours have passed. Please direct any questions to Scott Brandmeier at firstname.lastname@example.org or 414-351-8900.
Payne & Dolan will be in town next week (the week of July 30) to begin milling Poplar Drive and prepping the road for asphalt pavement. Milling activities will take a few days and, thereafter, the road will be graded and checked for suitable soils. Areas of road needing to be removed due to soft and unsuitable soils will be excavated and replaced with stone and, thereafter, the first layer of asphalt will be placed on the road. It is currently anticipated that this work will be completed over the course of one to two weeks depending on weather and soil conditions. Please note that the driveway approaches will not be paved until the final lift of asphalt is placed. Also, after the first layer of asphalt is placed, the contractor will be back in town to perform ditch regrading and landscape restoration activities. Also, no paving will be done on Club Circle or Lilac Lane as the water service laterals still need to be installed and storm sewer and gas work remain to be completed.
