Forest North Drainage Improvement Project - August 2016
You are receiving this email because you signed up for regular updates on the Forest North Drainage Improvement Project or are located within a zone where construction work is soon to begin.
The selection process for a contractor to perform the work is complete; DeNucci Constructors, LLC has been awarded the contract.
As the project team moves forward with pre-construction activities, the contractor will visit the Forest North neighborhood to take photos and stake and assess work areas. During this observation period, the contractor will visit all six work zones (there are six work zones: Braeburn, Briar Hollow, Sherbrooke, Stillforest, Tichester and Wisterwood. Construction will move by zone.).
Tichester has been identified as the initial work zone (the yellow outlined area in the below image). A larger map of the neighborhood and the work zones can be found here.
Drainage work could begin as soon as mid-August – our team will continue to provide updates as we learn more. Members of the construction team will make door-to-door visits prior to actual “turning of the dirt,” and vehicles parked on the street may need to be relocated while work occurs. Please, continue to visit the project website for updates.
AT&T relocations will be occurring in the Braeburn, Wisterwood, and Briar Hollow zones. Crews will be making minor adjustments to equipment inside existing easements. It is anticipated that AT&T will begin relocations in the Braeburn zone in early August.
Tichester Zone Residents:
Residents in the construction area have received notifications about the project and a door hanger regarding homeowner items in the right-of-way. If you wish to preserve these items (custom mailboxes, landscaping, planters, trees, irrigation systems, etc.), it is suggested you begin removing them now from the right-of-way. If homeowner items are not removed by the time construction begins, then the contractor will consider these items left for refuse.
Mailboxes: Mailboxes in the path of drainage work will be removed and replaced with standard units. We are in close communication with the post office to ensure there is no disruption of mail service.
Driveways: The re-grading of channels and replacement of driveway culverts will require the re-construction of some driveways. Driveways will be accessible by the end of each workday. Full driveway repairs will be made upon completion of the entirety of the work at each property. Notice will be provided to homeowners and residents at least 48 hours prior to any driveway-access interruptions.
Irrigation Systems: Irrigation systems in the path of drainage work will be removed, capped at the right-of-way line and will not be replaced.
