Main Street project schedule outlined

     Monticello Public Works Director Brant LaGrange recently addressed the Main Street repair project taking place in town.

     “We just learned the details of upcoming work on S. Main Street and N. Main Street,” he said in a letter to affected businesses. “The information is as detailed as we can get, and is also weather dependent.”

     LaGrange said with good weather next week, he anticipates the next phases of the project to go as follows:

     • Monday, Aug. 7 – Pave asphalt leveling course on the northbound lane between South Street and Third Street.

     • Tuesday, Aug. 8 – Pave asphalt level course on the center turning lane between South Street and Third Street.

     • Wednesday, Aug. 9 – Pave asphalt leveling course on the southbound lane between South Street and Third Street.

     • Thursday and Friday, Aug. 10-11 – Miscellaneous paving and cleanup.

     • Planned starting time each day is 6:30 a.m.

     • Target completion time each day is 7:30 p.m.

     • All paving will begin in the south, near E. South Street, and work to the north, near E. Third Street.

     • Pavement, once down, will be able to be driven on within approximately two hours.

     During the above work, access to affected properties will be impacted.

     After the competition of the above phases, contractors will work on sidewalk ramps. This work should take less than two weeks, weather permitting, and be completed the week of Aug. 21.

     The final step is laying the “surface course” of asphalt. That is tentatively scheduled to go down during the week of Aug. 28. That process will follow a similar schedule to the Aug. 7-9 schedule and will also impact access to area properties on a temporary basis.

     Once the surface course is installed, the lanes will be painted and the final project cleanup will occur. The entire project should be completed in early September, weather permitting.

     “We appreciate your understanding of the inconveniences that are associated with any project such as this and hope that the final product makes up for said inconveniences,” stated LaGrange.
