neighborhood infrastructure improvement.
We are the engineers for your Sanitary and Improvement District (SID). On behalf of the SID Board, we are providing notice of an upcoming project in your neighborhood. The SID has contracted to have portions of the streets reconstructed or repaired. See the FAQ section for answers to common questions.
Frequently Asked Questions.
The SID has engaged a Contractor to reconstruct or repair specific pavement locations throughout the District. The SID has taken bids and the lowest qualified bidder has been awarded the contract for the project. You may have even seen them performing this type of work here before, or in other areas of the Metro.
The Contractor will be saw cutting the pavement in the days before the removal and replacement work starts. When it does, you’ll see equipment breaking up the street pavement and hauling it off. The Contractor will then prepare the area and pour the concrete back. They will either replace the concrete the same day they remove the old pavement or even maybe the following day. Adverse weather may create an exception to that timing. Keep your eye out for freshened up green paint markings on the streets and refer to the map for repair and reconstruction locations.
As your District’s infrastructure ages, it requires maintenance. Sometimes the maintenance is preventative, sometimes the maintenance is a reaction to a failure. Your SID Board has made the conscious decision to have this maintenance performed to extend the life of the paving in your neighborhood.
Since you found this information, it’s getting close to time! You should see contractors working in your neighborhood very shortly. Keep your eye out for freshened up green paint markings on the streets.
The duration of these projects varies depending on how many areas are being removed and replaced within the SID. Typically, the contracts are less than 25 days. For a particular removal and replacement spot, you can expect the pavement to be closed for less than 7 days (from the time they tear it out until you can drive on it).
The Contractor is required to perform their work by restricting one half of the street at a time. This allows for traffic routes to be maintained. There are exceptions to this, but they are rare. If complete closure is required, the residents in close proximity will be notified and a detour route will be posted. Occasionally during the construction process, the Contractor may need to block the full street for a particular removal, or during concrete placement. Please be patient, and know that this is for just a few moments.
The Contractor or our Construction Observer will be in contact with you to make arrangements and ensure you have access.
Please contact us if it is apparent that the Contractor has damaged your private pavement or sprinkler system. You can call our office, report damage on this website or look for our Construction Observer in the field. When it comes to sod adjacent to a repair, the contractor will be restoring those areas all at once near the end of the project.
