Cave Avenue Redevelopment
Construction Update – Spring 2015 
We intend to begin the weekly construction update the first week of May and run until the completion of construction.

We have been waiting for the sub terrain to thaw and expect construction to resume the second week of May, with burial of overhead utilities and landscaping on the north side. We anticipate this will take approximately six weeks to complete.

Other tasks:
  • Installing curb & gutter on the south side
  • Paving parking bays and driveways repair
  • Creating new parking stalls along Birch Avenue (where the contractor’s trailer/office was located)
  • Landscaping the south side
  • Installing new street lights
  • Second lift of asphalt with road marking

All dates and task duration are weather dependent.

  • Road realignment
  • Curb and gutter
  • Moving streetlights to the north side of street, and updating them to meet new street light policy and standards
  • Upgrade of underground utility pipes
