  • Substantial construction completion is still on target for mid-September for the Trinity Street roadway reconstruction project. 

  • Final touches and repairs will be taking place within the next month, closing out the whole project by the end of October.

  • Within the next week:

    • Residents will see sod being installed and final cleanup measures

    • Relocation, installation, and transition of mailboxes and services; this is already in coordination with the United States Postal Service. Residents will receive notification soon of the transition date. 

  • A City representative, along with McMahon Contracting, will be meeting with each individual property owner to inspect and ensure irrigation systems are in working order. If not, the necessary repairs will be made.  

  • The City will be preparing the final punch list items for the project. 

    • A punch list is a document created near the end of a project to list and track any work not conforming to contract specifications so that the contractor knows what must be corrected prior to final payment. Types of things that are included are incomplete items, incorrect installations, or incidental damage to existing areas in the path of construction. 

  • Sewer Collapse -

    • During a post construction inspection of the Trinity Street sanitary sewer line, some damage was discovered near 320 Trinity. This damage appears to have been caused by the Atmos contractor while installing gas services. Since this area is upstream of the closest active sewer connection it has no impact on the sewer line. City Staff is currently addressing the issue with Atmos. At this time the repair appears to require the replacement of one or possibly two joints (pipes) of sanitary sewer main. More will be known when the damaged line is exposed and fully inspected. Unfortunately, this will require the removal and replacement of one or more sections of concrete pavement. While these repairs are not part of the overall project, the City, if possible, is electing to use the same contractor to ensure the quality and warranty of the existing roadway is maintained. We will keep the residents informed as this issue progresses. 

  • Due to construction, a section of Bois D'Arc is still closed.  Directional signage will be posted from Front Street to Trinity Street.  The best detour for Trinity Street residents, if needed, is to take Austin Street to access the north/south ends of Bois D'Arc (click here for map of street closing).

  • Friendly Reminder - Please DO NOT park on the street (new & old sections) during construction hours. This could potentially delay construction.
