Pipe Construction Re-Starts in April

  • April 3, 2011 4:05 pm

A report from Kate Bullock, chair of the Glyndon Community Association Water Pipe Task Force

As a result of negotiations between the State, County and Contractor, the following changes have been made to the construction schedule.The following dates are approximate only.  Actual dates will be determined by weather.

April 4 – April 8

Butler Road will not be repaved at this time.  However, all patches on Butler will be re-dug and re-filled to create a smoother temporary surface.  One lane of traffic will be maintained during the process, with flaggers present.  Some re-patching may also be done in other areas where temporary patches have eroded over the winter The County will notify schools and Police to expect traffic disruptions. Final repaving of Butler Road will not occur until late summer or fall.

April 7 – Mid Summer

Pipe replacement construction will begin on Central and the side streets.  It will begin at Butler Road, and move south.  Work in this area is expected to take 3 months.  At some point during this 3 month period, the following will also be done: Defective fire hydrant at Albright and Railroad will be replaced.Road rut in front of hydrant on Railroad at Chatsworth will be temporarily patched. The County will notify schools and the Police about expected traffic disruptions.

Please talk with you children…they will need to be far more careful in the streets than they are used to being.

Flaggers & Police Patrols

Early on in this process, the flaggers were not well trained, and caused as many problems as they solved.  A great deal of time was invested working with the Contractor, and the situation improved.  I am anticipating the same problem to occur again, and the same discussion will follow.

Please be careful out there. We have again requested police patrols to guard against vehicular and pedestrian accidents during construction.  Just as they did during prior construction, police will monitor for speed, stop sign violations, failure to follow flagger’s directions, and all other traffic violations.

Last time, this process resulted in a large number of violations and created a clear awareness within the Franklin Precinct of problems in Glyndon.  When making stops, police will not discriminate between residents and commuters, so be careful out there!

As always, please do not hesitate to contract me if you have any questions,
