Big H Streetscape Project Weekly Update, Nov. 12-16, 2012

Week 24 – Nov. 12 - 16, 2012
Major Impact Areas & Updates
• The project continues to wind down with minimal impact areas. The most significant impact area will again be the sidewalk on the east side of Elm between Adams and the alley (south side of Adams). This sidewalk and basement area is being reconstructed. This work will impact the entrances to Miracle Ear and La Grande Dry Cleaning.
• Finish work will continue on the new accent wall on Adams near Sterling Bank.

Project News
• New street trees will be installed throughout the project area this week.
• The installation of the new pedestrian lights throughout the project area will continue this week and the lights are expected to be operational the week of Nov. 19 in time for Thanksgiving.
• Contractor continues working on “punch-list” items including cleaning the fronts of buildings throughout the project area.
• All concrete needs to be protected long after it is initially installed. Cold weather is the harshest season that can damage your concrete. To avoid unnecessary damage you should not use deicers as a method of dealing with ice. Deicers will cause the concrete surface to flake and peel. It is recommended that kitty litter or sand be used for this since it is harmless to the surface of the concrete. Property owners are responsible for maintaining and replacing damaged sidewalks and avoiding surface damage will protect your investment and prolong the life of your concrete surface.
