Public Works...Working for You!
Sprayfield Herbicide Treatment/Management
As a part of the TLA/UI Herbicide and Aquatic Management of the North and South Sprayfield Contract, staff completed the herbicide treatments along the primary and secondary ditches located in the North Sprayfield this week (staff completed the treatment along the South Sprayfield earlier this month). As a reminder, UI is paying TLA for these services.
Main Gate Road Resurfacing
Bennett Paving completed the mill and replacement of the entry and exit lanes at the Main Gate late Friday afternoon. Absolute Concrete also completed the necessary concrete work associated with the project.
Main Gate Maintenance
Staff took advantage of the Main Gate closure this week to complete preventative maintenance items in and around the Main Gate. The main gate is in operation 24 hours a day/7 day a week which makes it difficult to complete the necessary preventative maintenance to the interior and exterior of the building. The preventative maintenance items included pressure washing the building and walkways, repainting the doors and handrails, and touching up paint to the interior and exterior of the building. All work was completed before the reopening of the roadway which occurred on Friday, August 21 at 11:30am.
Moon River Gate Equipment Replacements
On Wednesday, Carolina Time and Parking Group began the removal and replacement of the gate system equipment located at the Moon River Gate. Barring any weather delays, the Moon River gate system should be fully operational by Tuesday, August 25. Thereafter, Carolina Time will begin the removal and replacement of the Deer Creek Village Access Control Facility gate equipment. Please proceed with caution in and around the facility and be cognizant of the contractors working in this area.
Contracted Community Path Maintenance
Absolute Concrete replaced 100 linear feet of concrete panels along the path near Ward Lane this week. Staff is unsure as to the cause of the damage; however, it appears the damage was directly related to heavy machinery/trucks traveling on the path.
