  • Grimes Asphalt – The final segment of roadway paving (Zone 5) is expected to begin in the coming week(s) following completion and surface restoration of Zones 1-3 (Merle Hay Road to Coburn Lane) as well as completion of underground work in Zone 5. This involves the asphalt milling, shoulder widening, and overlay from west of Trail Ridge Drive through NW 48th Court and the side road reconstruction of these intersections. 
  • All-Star Concrete – Zone 4 driveways and side road paving (NW 51st Street) are expected to be completed this week. The remaining trail paving in Zone 3 (west of Coburn Lane) and commencement of trail paving in Zone 4 is also expected to occur this week. The Zone 6 trail extension (NW 48th Ct. to River Bend Drive) is being prepared for paving to occur as crews are available while waiting on other contractors in Zones 3, 4, and 5.
  • OnTrack – The contractor is expected to complete Zone 5 underground work and remaining culvert/storm sewer adjustments throughout the project by the end of the week. The final sanitary sewer manhole adjustments and lining will remain outstanding pending final ditch grading and contractor providing manhole lining quotes.
  • Wenthold – The contractor is on-site focusing on Zone 3 and 4 final grading to facilitate final surface restoration and trail construction, as well as beginning Zone 5 removals in advance of roadway paving operations.

Work is being focused on final surface restoration and completion of Zones 1 through 3 by the end of the month to align with the close of the permanent seeding window. Final surface restoration has been mostly completed through Zone 2 (east of Forest Drive). It is scheduled to be completed through Zone 3 within the fall seeding window (end of September), weather permitting.
