The purpose of the Long Road Reconstruction Project is to reconstruct a corridor that was originally paved in 1972.  In addition to the pavement reconstruction, the project scope involves upgrading the storm sewer system, replacing a Southgate waterline main, pedestrian safety improvements and undergrounding the overhead power lines.  The work, which began in April, will continue into December under the current closure condition.  Long Road will reopen in December, however, work will continue through the winter months into the late Spring of 2018. Due to winter weather conditions, paving and landscaping will be suspended until the spring of 2018.  As weather permits through the winter, the contractor will continue with utility and grading activities during non-rush hour periods with one way flagging operations. When paving and landscaping resumes, it is anticipated to take 2 months to complete.  While there may be short-term weekend closures necessary to perform the remaining activities in the spring, no long-term closures of Long Road are planned. Several unplanned underground utility conflicts required modifications to the alignment of the new water line and the new storm sewer.  Unfortunately, these modifications have caused delays to the completion date of the project.  While these type of utility conflicts are not uncommon to encounter during construction of a project of this size and scope, the tight timeline to complete all of the work and then perform the final paving before winter was not accomplished.

We appreciate your patience during this important project.



Reconstruct the failed pavement, improve the drainage, mitigate the winter icing, improve the trail connectivity and pedestrian safety, optimize the effectiveness of the traffic calming, enhance the streetscape with landscaping and keep the rural nature of the area.
