Road construction coming to an end

Phase I of the Petersburg Road Improvement Project is coming to an end – and Dowl HKM Project Engineer Matt McGuan recapped the construction activities over the last two weeks during a recent meeting.

“All curb and gutter have been poured except for two damaged pieces by Tides Inn,” he stated. “We have also poured sidewalks on Dolphin Street from the top of the hill down to the PIA parking lot and sown to the Nordic Drive intersection.”

Concrete and parking aprons have been poured on Dolphin and the majority of the sidewalks along both sides of Nordic Drive have been completed and Dolphin Street has been prepped and graded for pavement.

“That was a lot for the last two weeks,” McGuan said. “And all the work is going along well.”

SECON Project Superintendent Bryce Kidd made note of the upcoming activities for the project.

“Our goal is to finish,” he stated. “We will be concentrating on sidewalks and curb ramp will be going in this week.”

The glass-seeded concrete and medallions will be the last part of the project to take place before finishing.

Four of the 20 medallions are in and more will be placed in the next couple of days.

The final meeting of the road construction progress team will take place at 1 p.m. on Nov. 13, just before the winter shutdown.
