Farden Construction is planning on mobilizing to the project starting July 31st and construction work on CR 14 will be under way. Access and traffic will be impacted as the existing asphalt will be removed between US 2 and 20th Ave, and the road may be closed in sections when new culverts are installed under the roadway. Once the culvert work is completed, the contractor will remove additional roadway materials and prep the road for base stabilization. The extra material needs to be haul away, to minimize changing the profile of the roadway in order to tie into the existing access points along the roadway and the base is being stabilized to address the issues with the subgrade created when the sewer district was put in many years ago. Once the base stabilization process is complete, new aggregate base will be brought in and then the roadway will be paved. Please see the contractors proposed schedule for the project. Farden Construction will be the prime on the project, and Behold Paving will be placing the Hot Bituminous Pavement.
