Fontaine Fire Station, a set on Flickr.
Some photos from the Fry's Spring tour of the new Fontaine Avenue fire station.
Those drainage structures identified as being too high within the road cross section have been investigated further and a solution has been requested of the contractor to make repairs.
The silt fence along the back side of BMP, will be removed once the grass is established.
The contractor will need to secure the reflective tape on bollards near flashing light pedestrian crosswalk.
The city has requested a one year bond for the potential removal and replacement of the existing white oak tree next to the trail entrance, in the case the tree health declines.
The drainage structure near 301 Middleton Lane, will be adjusted so the top doesn’t rock and become nosy when vehicles drive over it. Additional seeding will also be provided at the end of the retaining wall (OLR side)
The stone path was cleaned up and adjusted to the new easement at the Old Laurel Lane right of way, however it was requested that Finley provide an estimate for paving 2” of surface mix over the compacted stone base material. Additional drainage improvement options will be assessed when the Parks Department looks to install more landscaping in this area.
Due to vehicle operators driving off the edge of the driveway at 229 OLR, a 6” x 6” timber curb was requested. The contractor has restored the slope and a wooden curb was requested. No cracks in the driveway were found and the driveways are in good condition. The sink hole that was found during the driveway repaving was repaired and the existing 48” concrete storm pipe found to be in whole condition. The concrete patch provides a stable and compacted condition for the driveway.
The handicap sign request for 112 OLR is in process with the traffic division and will be handled directly with the owners.
Rock and debris have been removed from the top soil layer of the disturbed areas and will be checked again before final acceptance.
A request for additional top soil behind the silt fence at 211 will be reviewed and placed as needed.
Speed limit signs are currently installed on both ends of OLR , but additional locations for installation are being reviewed. This will also include moving the “No Trucks”… sign closer to JPA.
All close –out documents will be submitted within 10 days after the Substantial Completion date has been established.
We are quickly approaching the completion of most of the major elements involved in this OLR project and even adding new one. (New paving to Azalea Park /City Limits)
Scheduled activities weather permitting: (60% chance of rain on Tuesday!)
– City milled OLR from Middleton Lane to city limits. Coordination has been made with Finley to have the final paving done at the same time that the section north of Middleton is paved.
Tuesday – Finley is making concrete repairs, utility meter adjustments, patching street asphalt, delivering materials to pond area, ie. bio-mix, mulch and landscaping, and complete stone weir.
– S.L. Williamson and Finley will be placing final surface mix asphalt from JPA to City Limits. Finley will coordinate with the owner and address all adjustments made on individual driveways.
– Placement of pavement markings and new signs along roadway.
– Install bio-mix, mulch and plantings
– complete hand railings. Finley will address all new fencing with the individual owners as needed.
Traffic controls will be in place to limit cut through traffic north of Middleton Lane to JPA and maintain one lane of traffic for that section south of Middlton Lane.
Thanks to everyone ahead of time for your cooperation, while we make these improvements.
Updates: fencing started today and final paving will start .

|Proposed Site Plan (Larger PDF version)|
Hello everyone,We have made a lot of good progress since the last schedule update. If the weather will allow it the plans are to have a lot more activity within the project limits. I appreciate the neighborhoods support and patience with the interruptions to normal use of the area. As indicated by the schedule below, we are hopeful that more of the areas can be dressed up soon.

Storm pipe installation will continue along OLR from 209 - 201.
Retaining walls at OLR 126,119,118,113,112 & 301 Middleton will be completed.
clearing operations will continue behind the Beach Club pool.
May 6- 10

May 13 to 17
Storm pipe work behind the behind and along side the Beach Club fence will begin. Top soil will be stockpiled from within the basin area behind the pool.
Concrete curb , sidewalks and driveways will be installed 215,213,211,209,207 OLR.
Traffic access will be limited to one lane and local traffic only. Please take alternate routes whenever possible. We apologize for the dust created in our efforts to keep the streets clear of dirt & mud. Once the retaining wall construction is complete there will be less need to sweep the streets and less dust. We appreciate your understanding. New driveway entrances will require no access to the driveways while the concrete cures. This generally takes 72 hours. We see that great coordination among property owners to share each others driveways during this period has worked will and trust this can continue. We thank you for letting us know of any special needs for access ahead of time and will work with those situations to accommodate where possible.
Thanks again for everyone's positive approach and cooperation towards getting these great improvements completed.
We wish to provide additional information on the scheduled work along Old Lynchburg Road for the next couple of weeks. Tomorrow work crews will be focused on installing concrete wing walls at the storm water outfall point at Middleton Lane, west. Wednesday water service line work will be provided at 221,219, 217 OLR. Thursday- water service line work at 240 242 OLR . Friday - water service line work at 238, 236.

It is intended and will be cross checked , that water service will be restored before the end of each work day.
