About a dozen citizens attended an informational meeting July 11 regarding the street rehabilitation project in Andover that begins next week.
City of Andover Public Works Director Les Manges told the group the city tries to rehabilitate a group of streets every year. Each street is usually redone once every 10 years.
This project is part of the city's long-term street rehabilitation plan and will be funded by the dedicated street maintenance 1-cent sales tax. There is no charge to adjacent property owners.
Cornejo and Sons general superintendent Gordon Long said the entire project is divided into four phases, running from July 16 to Aug. 18. Each phase should take less time than what is allotted, and a temporary group mailbox will be set up in each area, if necessary.
Long said Phase I will begin Monday, July 16, on Greenvalley Drive. The work will only affect the first eight houses on the east side of the street south from Central and will go no farther south than Generations Church. Scheduled for eight days, Long said they hope to complete it much quicker than planned.
Phase II includes four cul-de-sacs running south from Third Street – Sunnyslope Court, Countryside Court, Hillcrest Court and Valleyview Court. Ten days are allotted to complete this phase, which is scheduled to start July 25.
Phase III picks up the portion of Sunnyslope, Countryside and Hillcrest courts that run north of Third Street. It is scheduled to start Aug. 6 and is planned for eight days.
The final phase will be on Pineview Drive. Scheduled to start Aug. 8, it should take 10 days.
Long said door hangers will be left at each affected residence a few days prior to the start of each phase.
Manges and Long both cautioned residents they should not drive through a yellow powder that looks like sulfur.
