Now that the binder level of asphalt is complete, there are several things that need to be done before surface can be placed. Some things have all ready begun; as many drivers may have noticed, the frames of the structures have been broken out, meaning the binder asphalt was opened up so that the frame of the structure can be placed at the correct elevation. The parkway restoration has begun, starting with the clearing and smoothing out of the areas that will get restored, and then placing topsoil. The sod will not be placed until AFTER the surface asphalt has been installed.

The paving subcontractor is onsite this afternoon to pave the remaining portion of West Ridgewood. They will be back on Monday to complete the binder. Landscape restoration will resume after the binder is placed, and sod will be placed sometime in September.

On Friday, August 7, DiMeo will begin grading the remaining roads, West Ridgewood (north of Pleasant Lane), Linden Lane and Glen Oak Drive, in preparation for paving. The schedule is to place the binder lift (bottom layer) of asphalt on those roads late next week. We ask residents to please plan accordingly when coming and going on any day paving is taking place; they may need to wait a few minutes or find a different route.

After the contractor has completed paving the first layer of asphalt on all streets, work will begin to remove all of the debris from the site, grade the parkways and place topsoil, in preparation for sod. The sod work will not begin until September, when temperatures are cool enough to ensure that the sod does not die in the heat of the day.
