Phase 1: Utility locates have been called in for spring work and the contractor will be out next week to start finishing up some work that was not able to be completed last fall. This will include concrete work, grading behind the curb, minor utility work and other miscellaneous punchlist type work. Tree planting is scheduled for late April. Once all of phase 2 is stabilized the contractor will then begin preparations for the final lift of bituminous and the paving will follow.
