Big H Streetscape Project Weekly Update - Nov. 5-9, 2012

Major Impact Areas & Updates
• The project is winding down with minimal impact areas. The most significant impact area for the next 2-3 weeks will 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.
• Finish work will continue on the new accent wall on Adams near Sterling Bank.
• The sidewalk on the east side of Elm north of Adams may see partial closures.

Project News
• New street trees may be installed this week or next.
• New pedestrian lights are scheduled to arrive this week; installation will begin soon.
• Contractor will be 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.
