City street projects will begin this weekThe Carmichael Road project involves removing the top layer of blacktop and replacing with it with new blacktop. Grandview Drive will be reconstructed from Vine Street to Ash Drive.
The city of Hudson’s 2012 street improvement projects will begin this week (Aug. 20-24), the Public Works and Parks Department announced on Thursday.
Monarch Paving of Turtle Lake is the general contractor for the work that includes:
--Resurfacing Carmichael Road from Vine Street to north of the Prairie View Center strip mall;
--Reconstructing Grandview Drive from Vine Street to just north of Ash Drive; and
--Reconstructing an alley between Sixth and Seventh streets north of River Street.
The Carmichael Road project involves removing the top layer of old blacktop and replacing with it with new blacktop.
The department said it may be possible to do some reconstruction of the roadway at the north entrance to the business center, but it won’t be rebuilt completely until a total street reconstruction project is done.
The road will remain open to traffic during most of the mill and overlay project, but there will be some delays when only one traffic lane is open, the Public Works Department said in a news release.
Flagmen will direct traffic during the lane-closings. The County UU entrance to the business center is restricted due to the construction of the Central Bank facility.
The Grandview Drive project will involve removing the curbing, driveway aprons and asphalt road surface.
The Hudson Water Utility will check valves and hydrants after the asphalt is removed, and do repair work. The curbing, aprons and blacktop will then be put back.
Access will remain open for residents to get to their homes as much as possible during construction, the department said, but homeowners will not be able to get into their driveways for 7 to 10 days when the concrete work is being done.
Homeowners will not be able to drive on the street for at least a day when the blacktop is put down. Mailboxes will be set up at a temporary location, and a suggested detour route has been established.
The alley project includes removing blacktop, grading and replacing the blacktop.
Access will be limited during construction with parking available on Sixth, Seventh or River streets. Refuse and recycling containers will be put on the north side of River Street on Mondays for pickup.
Project updates will be posted on the city’s website, www.ci.hudson.wi.us. Contact the Public Works Department, (715) 386-4767 ext. 113 or 114, for answers to questions.
