2020 MFT Street Reconstruction Construction Update

Updated July 2, 2020.

No construction will take place from Friday, July 3 through Sunday, July 5

Greenbrier Court – Shenandoah Drive to Cul-de-Sac
Builders Paving, Inc completed the final surface layer on July 1, 2020. Initial placement of topsoil began around the curb, driveways, and sidewalk.  This is NOT the final landscaping.  The areas disturbed by construction will be restored with topsoil and sod in later summer or early fall when conditions are favorable to sod growth.

Brighton Place (include both courts) – Briar Street to Valley Lane
Builders Paving has several outstanding work efforts that must be completed prior to placing the final surface layer.  Residents have full access to their driveways and the street will remain open to traffic.  However, there will be days that work is taking place that may require temporary lane closures or traffic delays.

Another notice will be distributed prior to the prime coat and final surface being placed.

Stratford Road – Suffield Drive to Canterbury Drive
Builders Paving completed the earth excavation on July 1, 2020.  The following is the remaining scheduled work for Stratford Rd:

Thursday, July 2 – Stone subbase placement

Friday through Sunday – No Work

Monday, July 6 – Final Grading of the stone subbase

Tuesday, July 7 – Tentatively scheduled to place the bottom layers of asphalt

 By the end of the work day on Thursday, July 2 the contractor will install a stone ramp in front of each driveway to make them accessible.  On Monday, the ramps will need to be removed to complete the final grading, so please move cars out of the driveway and off the street by 7 AM Monday, July 6.


Prindle Avenue (includes Prindle Court) – Suffield Drive to Hintz Road
Weather permitting, Suburban Concrete will remove the west half of the intersection at Hintz Rd.  It is scheduled to be replaced on Tuesday, July 7.

Weather permitting, Builders Paving, Inc. anticipates pavement removal to begin on Tuesday, July 7 at approximately 7 AM.

Please have your vehicles out of the driveway and off the street by 7 AM Tuesday, July 7.  Driveways will not be accessible until the first two layers of asphalt are placed.

Parking on Prindle Avenue and Prindle Court is not allowed Monday through Friday between 7 AM to 5:00 PM and on Saturdays if the Contractor is working.  However, at the end of each working day residents will have access to the street and be able to park in front of their homes.  The street will be down to a stone base, so please be mindful of your neighbors and drive slowly to minimize dust and stones kicking up. 

For your convenience, we have provided a general sequence of construction activities for this phase of construction.  This schedule is an estimate and subject to change.

  1. Pavement Removal – 1 ½ - 2 working days

Update on 2020 MFT Reconstruction Program  
Updated June 26, 2020

Overview of 2020 Rehabilitation & Reconstruction Program

The Village's Engineering Division oversees the street rehabilitation, reconstruction, resurfacing and sidewalk construction projects. Village streets selected for reconstruction are at a stage of deterioration where the curb and gutter is no longer functioning properly, there is failure of the street's subbase and the main part of the street is in poor condition.  The Project Engineer for the Street Rehabilitation & Reconstruction Program is Briget Schwab.   If you live on a street affected by this program, please sign-up to receive email updates about the work being done on your street.

Intermittent curb and sidewalk are removed and replaced and the street is milled and resurfaced. This project is currently out for bid. The Project Engineer for the Street Resurfacing Program is Aldair Vargas.
