NOTICES AND UPCOMING EVENTS:

1. Detours, Closures, and Final Roadway Restoration:
The concrete surfaces of all roadways disturbed by construction have been restored.

Final adjustments in the Work adjacent to the roadways, and application of a protective coating on the new concrete roadway surfaces, will be occurring over the next week, after the slight delay due to the weather.

Residents should expect partial roadway lane closures along Farnsworth Lane between Western Avenue and Ellendale Drive, including portions of Fieldwood Drive, Sunnyside Circle, and Ellendale Drive. These closures will be limited to those locations where Work is being completed. Closures will only occur while these activities are taking place during normal work hours, and fully re-open at the end of the work day

While sealants are being applied to the restored roadway surfaces next week, residents should expect Farnsworth Lane and portions of the adjacent side streets to be completely closed to traffic for several hours while the sealant is applied and cures. As soon as possible, the roadways will be re-opened. Residents will receive a letter 24-hours prior the closure of the roadways for application of the sealant, and are asked to refrain from parking vehicles on the roadway for that day.
