Work Anticipated to be completed This week, October 17th to 21st  
·         Pave first layer of asphalt pavement along Longvalley Road from river to North Branch Road.
·         Water service replacements along North Branch Road from Longvalley Road to Country Lane

Water service replacements along North Branch Road will begin next week. Water services will be replaced from the new water main to the existing valve and box located in front of each home. During the water service replacement, water to individual homes will be shut-off for approximately 2-3 hours while the transition from the old service to the new service is made. The contractor will notify each resident individually regarding the approximate time and day of the water shut-off prior to turning off the water.

It is anticipated water service replacements along North Branch Road will take the majority of next week and may not be completed until early the week of October 24th. Once the water service replacement are completed, the contractor will continue with the storm sewer improvements along North Branch Road.

The contractor started the roadway improvements along Longvalley Road by removing the existing materials to the depth required for the new asphalt pavement along with grading and installing aggregate base course. It is anticipated the first layer of asphalt pavement will be installed next week. This will be a significant project milestone for those residents along Longvalley Road by providing a smooth driving surface and greatly reducing the amount of dust created.

Thanks again for all your patience and understanding.
