Public Works...Working for You!
2019 Community Path Project
Absolute Concrete crews are continuing with the demolition and concrete pour along the section of path on Shellwind Drive. To date, the contractor has completed the conversion path up to Cloverwood Court.
In-house staff are in the process of backfilling the area along the community path on Landings Way South from the Plantation Club to Delegal Road.
2019 Road Repair Project
Bennett Paving completed the road striping along the new section of pavement on Shellwind Drive from just inside the Deer Creek Village Gate to Moonbill Lane this week. Staff, in conjunction with Thomas & Hutton, are developing a punch list for the project to date.
2019 Mailbox and Sign Painting Program
On Wednesday, staff met with Five Star Painters to conduct a final walk through of the project scope. The contractor will address the final touch-up/punch list items next week which will conclude the annual mailbox and sign painting program.
Access Control Facilities Lightning Strike
On Tuesday, Remote Technology repaired and restored the damaged gate equipment (affected by the storm) in the following gate access control facilities: Main Gate, Oakridge Gate, Deer Creek Village Gate and the Deer Creek McWhorter Gate. In-house staff will continue to monitor the equipment to ensure that it remains fully operational.
Late Wednesday afternoon, a water main break occurred on Landings Way South at the intersection of Westcross Road. The breakage resulted in road damage to Landings Way South that was caused by the failure of a straight-line sleeve repair from the original construction of the waterline system. This failure ultimately triggered a 12-inch pipe buried deep in the ground to rupture. Utilities, Inc. worked late into the night on Wednesday to repair and reconnect the broken water main. Thereafter, they were able to compact the soils of the roadway and place a gravel base on top of the road to allow for this area to be reopened until arrangements for repaving are made. Staff will be working with Utilities, Inc. and Bennett Paving on the road repair which will be at the expense of Utilities, Inc.
Sunset Sips Presentation
For the last two years, Turf Field Day has been cancelled due to weather related events. In order to provide the educational information related to water conservation, turf management, irrigation best practices, shallow wells and state water restrictions, staff decided to incorporate the presentations into the Sunset Sips Series at the Delegal Sunset Room in July and August. On Thursday, Sean Burgess gave a presentation on Shallow Wells and Ron Medders provided an overview on the State Water Restrictions. Next month, Chad Jaudon (with BrightView) and Chris Steigleman (with TLC) will present on Turf Management and Irrigation Best Practices.
