Big H Streetscape Project Weekly Update - Oct. 29 - Nov. 2, 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 contractor will pour the stamped colored concrete in various areas of the project area.
·         The sidewalk on the east side of Elm north of Adams will be closed for part of the week.
Project News
·         New street trees as a part of this project are scheduled to be installed in early November. The trees need to be installed once they are fully dormant.
·         New street/pedestrian lights as a part of this project are scheduled to be installed in mid-November. The lights are being custom-made, and the manufacturer has indicated a ship date of November 2.
·         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.
