Riverside Golf Course can be accessed from 30th Street, and the Riverside Academy can be accessed from 38th Street. Construction and road closures along White River Parkway West Drive will continue through July.
In addition, force main construction has started on 51st Street from Knollton Road to Michigan Road. Access to homes on 51st Street will shift from Michigan Road to Knollton Road as the construction progresses. It is anticipated that the force main construction will cross Michigan Road in early July.
sewer along Grandview Drive, just west of Michigan Road is complete. However,
the road closure for Grandview Drive from Michigan Road to Kessler Boulevard is
still in effect, as force main construction will follow in late July. The street
will be closed to through traffic, allowing local access only. The official
detour is Michigan Road to Kessler Boulevard. Construction of the storm sewer
along Grandview Drive should be complete by the end of July. Efforts will
continue to alleviate ponding and water collection on private property.
Section 4: Juan Solomon Park lift station and Coffin Golf Course flow transition building
Tentative Schedule: Ongoing through October 2011
FA Wilhelm Construction Company has mobilized at Juan Solomon Park. The contractor set up field office trailers and delivered materials and equipment to the job site. The 18 inch storm drain pipe from the rain garden along Grandview Avenue has been installed along with temporary dewatering wells, used to lower the groundwater level.
The contractor also began mass excavation for the new lift station, approximately 14 feet below ground level and poured concrete piers in preparation for relocation of the existing picnic shelter. Dewatering wells have been added in the park’s west parking lot in preparation for the installation of the 48 inch gravity sewer.
Work at Coffin Golf Course is scheduled to begin on or after October 1, and the contractor intends to begin tree removal at this location in the coming weeks.
