Construction crews are scheduled to begin working on the first of two construction projects planned for the Read Blvd. West neighborhood in January 2018. Bounded by Dwyer Road, Read Boulevard, Flake Avenue and Chef Menteur Highway, this first construction project includes the following types of work:
- Patch Mill / Overlay: Repave the asphalt roadway from curb to curb and repair damaged sidewalks.
- Patch Concrete: Remove damaged portions of the concrete roadway and replace it with new smooth concrete pavement.
- Incidental Road Repairs: Remove damaged portions of the asphalt roadway and replace it with new smooth pavement.
- Non-Paving Incidentals: Repair damaged sidewalks, driveway aprons and curbs within the public right-of-way.
The Department of Public Works, working with the Sewerage and Water Board, will host a public meeting to discuss construction sequencing and anticipated construction impacts in December.
