Deering Street Final Paving Notice

The Department of Public Works would like to update you on the status and activities regarding the above referenced project.  As a reminder, this project will separate the existing combined sewer in the street to a separate sanitary sewer and stormwater drain and is related to the City’s Clean Water Act compliance goals. 

Fall has arrived and the City’s contractor, R.E. Coleman, will be returning to the site to complete the final paving and punch list activities.  The work will extend the length of Deering Street from Mellen Street to High Street.

Work includes: preparation of the driveways and crosswalks, cleaning of the streets, the application of the final 1.5 inches of pavement, plants within the green infrastructure soil filters and various other minor punch list items. 

The schedule for this work is highly weather dependent but I wanted to lay out what the plan is because we will have a large “No Parking” posting for the paving.

The week of September 11 – 15, 2017, R.E. Coleman will be onsite to begin preparing the driveways and addressing some of the punch list items.  There will be limited “No Parking” installed, if necessary, but they think they can address most of the work without needing it.

The Week of September 18 – 22.  Paving is currently scheduled for either the 18th or 19th.  It will be weather dependent.  “No Parking” signs will be posted September 14th.  The entire length of the street will be posted for “No Parking” from 7:00 AM to 7:00 PM.  It is the intent to pave the entire thing in one day.  The first thing that happens is the street will need to be swept and that will require all cars to be off the street.  You will be towed if your car is on the street.  You will also not have easy access to your driveways.  After pavement is placed, it needs to be rolled and cooled before cars will be allowed on it.  This is a moving target, so, I cannot tell you exactly at what time your driveway will be impacted.  You may be asked to wait for approximately 15 minutes before you are allowed to cross the pavement from your driveway.  We ask that you observe and respect the flaggers and any traffic directional changes as we progress.

Mr. Dylan Stuart of Sebago Technics continues to serve as the City’s Inspector and will be onsite periodically.  I thank you again for your patience during this project.  We are almost complete.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact myself at 874-8846 or catch Dylan onsite during the day.
