Blackland Road Reconstruction
UPDATE: This project is currently ahead of schedule weather permitting the anticipated completion is November 2018.
Blackland Road from Greenbriar to approximately 700 feet north of Sun Valley Drive will be reconstructed from June 2018 to May 2019. Residents shall expect delays during this time frame. Two-way, one lane traffic is expected. Flaggers will be directing traffic during the day, while standard traffic control devices will be in place at night time. It is anticipated the top portion of the roadway (approximately 7”-8” of asphalt) will be removed. The existing subgrade/clay soils under the roadway will be treated to provide for a hard, compacted surface under the future roadway. Once the subgrade is complete, the asphalt will be placed on the surface. New pavement markings will be installed once the roadway is complete. In addition to the paving improvements, drainage improvements consisting of the removal and replacement of the driveway culverts along the roadway will occur. This will not disrupt the traffic along Blackland Road, however, the contractor will be coordinating with the residents living directly on Blackland Road regarding access to their homes.
The asphalt millings from Blackland Road are being used to grade and level Willowbrook Lane starting July 2, 2018 until July 6, 2018. This work is now complete.
