Nearing the end...

Only a few tasks are left to complete the project: parkway restoration and the final lift of asphalt. If the weather stays like it is now (cool and gorgeous!) A. Lamp will plan on placing sod sometime next week with asphalt the following week.

Alley Complete!

The alley was paved with both binder and surface yesterday, just in time for the rain. Everything looks great. The contractor will do a small amount of parkway restoration to clean up the edges.

This Week's Schedule

Wednesday-Friday: Structure Adjustments
Thursday: Pave Alley

Next week: Sod and surface (hopefully!)

What's a structure adjustment?
All the structures (manholes) that are in the roadway were covered by the binder level of asphalt. The contractor comes back in, digs up the structure covers and raises them to the appropriate height, closing in the hole with concrete. So until the surface level is placed, the structure frames will be slightly higher than the road.
