9/9/2021 - Collinsville Streetscape II Update

COLLINSVILLE VILLAGE STREETSCAPE II

9/21/21 Update - Saw cutting for curb installation on Main Street, will begin tomorrow morning (Wednesday, Sept 22nd) at 7:00 a.m. The immediate area adjacent to the curbs will be coned off and closed to parking starting tonight at 10:00 p.m.  The Town Hall parking lot is available for off-street parking.

9/17/21 Update - The nature of this type of project requires beginning with the installation of granite curb. The Streetscape contractor Martin Laviero Inc. is presently securing a supply of the necessary linear feet and correct coloration of granite curb for the first portion of the project. Excavation on Main Street will begin the week of September 20th once Call Before You Dig finishes their mark out so we can proceed safely. Additionally, the project surveyor will be in the area performing lay-out for the construction process. We will continue to work towards moving things along as quickly as possible.

The DPW is working on signage that will let people know that the businesses are open during construction. There will be two signs manufactured in house, that will be placed on opposite ends of the project limits. These should be installed next week.

Some Reminders:
Contractor work hours are limited to 7:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Monday thru Friday.
The construction sequence for this phase of the project will include replacement of curbing, sidewalks, catch-basins and decorative lighting,  beginning in front of LaSalle Market and proceeding up the hill to Market St. 
Once excavation begins, patrons of  LaSalle Market and other merchants may find it easiest to park in the Town Hall parking lot, where additional spaces are being freed up beginning Sept. 20, for the duration of the first phase of the project. Parking spaces in the immediate work zone may not be available depending on the type of construction taking place. There may be occasional delays while equipment & traffic moves through the area. As with any major construction project, schedules are subject to change due to material availability, weather, etc. we also have the added issue of working during a pandemic so crew availability is monitored more closely. 

Businesses in the area will remain open and accessible during construction. Main Street will remain open during construction. 

I had a request for the plans to be made available. Here is a drop-box link to the project plan-set: https://app.box.com/s/q8h69zr9zbrxh4ab7xyrcecsxa6qmdhc
