2020 Local Road Construction
2020 Cascade Township Local Mill & Fill Program
The Kent County Road Commission (KCRC} in collaboration with Cascade Township is contracting with Superior Asphalt to resurface select local streets in Cascade. If you are receiving this letter, your street has been selected for resurfacing in 2020.
About the Project:
The resurfacing project will consist of milling off (removing} the existing asphalt surface to the gravel grade of the road. A new base course of asphalt will then be placed on top of the gravel grade. This will be followed by the application of a top course of asphalt.
Access to residences will be maintained during the project. However, gravel ramps to driveways may be removed for brief periods during paving operations.
These restricted periods will be kept to a minimum.
Sprinklers, Invisible Dog Fences, Homeowner-Placed Utilities: Underground sprinkling systems, invisible dog fencing or other private, homeowner-placed underground utilities are not permitted in the public road right-of-way
- If you require access in or out of your driveway during paving operations, please consult with an on-site contractor or inspector who can assist with access.
(the area that directly abuts the road and generally extends about 15 feet past the pavement on either side of the road}. KCRC understands that these underground assets sometimes may be placed within the right-of-way, regardless.
- If you have a sprinkler system, invisible fence or other private underground lines within three (3) feet from the road, it is your responsibility to flag or stake the area.
- When possible, every attempt will be made not to harm the marked assets.
- Ultimately, any damage to homeowner-placed underground lines or utilities will be the responsibility of the individual who owns the system.
- Homeowners are asked to turn off sprinkler zones that abut the road for the project's duration.
KCRC affords its contractors flexibility in scheduling to achieve the best contract price possible. While inconvenient for planning purposes, this helps to stretch tax dollars and complete more miles of road improvements.
- Work may be conducted anytime Monday through Saturday, from approximately 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Occasional Sunday work also may be required to complete the project within the contracted time fame.
- KCRC will make every effort to post yard signs prior to the start of the project stating, "Please Do Not Park on Roads." Once these signs are posted, the project will commence within approximately 48 hours.
- Factors like weather, equipment issues or simultaneous projects can impact the timing of work. Therefore, an "exact" day-to-day schedule cannot be provided.
Upon completion of the project, grass in the right-of-way will be restored by KCRC within approximately two weeks. After KCRC spreads the grass seed, it is the homeowner's responsibility to water and maintain the area to assist with regrowth.
