Madison Early Childhood Education Center Stormwater Improvement Project Update 12/12/16

Posted on December 12, 2016 at 4:35 PM by Barbara Petrucci

Excavation of the detention basin is well underway and is now substantially complete.  When the weather permits, the contractor will install underdrain in the bottom of the basin, build the seat-wall (i.e. retaining wall) around the perimeter of the field, and finish the basin with topsoil, seed, and erosion blanket.

On Washington Street (between Madison and McKinley), the contractor has completed installing the new sanitary sewer, sanitary services, and water services.  Due to the winter weather and the fact that asphalt plants were closing for the winter, the City decided to delay installation of the new storm sewer until Spring 2017.  This allowed the City to winterize the street by installing a temporary asphalt patch on Washington Street, thereby keeping the street safe, clean, and plowable through the winter.

Additionally, over the past few weeks the contractor has been finishing all the miscellaneous concrete installation (sidewalk, curb, apron, etc.) along Bryan, Adams, and Washington adjacent to the school.  The contractor also completed all asphalt patching in these areas and backfilled the parkways with topsoil.  Final restoration will take place in the spring.
