Wealthy Street Improvements

Posted on: April 27, 2016 | Posted in: News

We have received some information about upcoming brick pavement repairs that we would like to share. After meetings with the city, we can confirm that the repairs in the linked article will be happening over the next three years.

Phase 1 (2016):

Brick Pavement Repair in Wealthy Street/Lake Drive intersection

Where the base has failed (uneven pavement), the work will consist of removing the brick pavement, salvaging the brick, reconstructing the failed concrete base and re-placing the bricks. Where needed, utility castings will be adjusted. The work also includes upgrading the sidewalk ramps to current ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) standards. The work also includes defining the edge of the brick at the asphalt on the Lake Drive sides with a concrete header. The work is currently out for bids. The contractor will be required to complete the work by June 22nd. During this phase, the contractor will be allowed to close Lake Drive, one leg at a time. The work is estimated at $150,000.

 

Phase 2 (2017) and Phase 3 (2018):

Brick Repair from Fuller Avenue to East City Limits (Travel Lanes Only)

Where the base has failed (uneven pavement), the work will consist of removing the brick pavement, salvaging the brick, reconstructing the failed concrete base and re-placing the bricks. Where concrete or asphalt has been placed and the brick removed, the concrete or asphalt will be removed full depth, a concrete base constructed and salvaged bricks will be placed. Where needed, utility castings will be adjusted. The work also includes upgrading the sidewalk ramps to current ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) standards. The estimate includes work at each side street intersection. A pilot material, Pave Drain, will be used at a intersection on the side street. If the pilot material is found not to be a great application, other materials such as porous asphalt will be used. This work will be in the travel lanes only from Fuller Avenue to the East City Limits (east of Woodmere Avenue) and done over two years. The work is estimated at $420,000 and will be done in the Summer, 2017 and Summer, 2018.
