Laurel Road Construction begins Monday, July 20th.


The City is beginning the third phase of the Laurel Road Widening Project between Mellowood Drive to Main Street, which also includes the repair and resurfacing of Laurel Road east of Main Street to Meadows Lane. Electronic message boards and construction signs will be installed this week in anticipation of construction which starts on Monday, July 20th.

The first stage of construction is to widen the north side of the road. Construction signs and temporary striping will transition traffic to the south side of Laurel Road so the contractor can efficiently construct the north side of the road with the least amount of disruption to the traveling public.

This project will reconstruct and improve Laurel Road in the section from Mellowood Drive to Main Street which has been in need of roadway reconstruction due to the heavy concentration of Sierra-Crete that had been used decades ago by the County. This roadway has required frequent and costly repairs.

The scope of this project includes: removal of all failed base materials and Sierra-Crete and replacement with proper aggregate base material, placement of new curb, gutter, and sidewalk, improving the landscaping and irrigation, and modifying the traffic signal at the intersection of Main Street/Laurel Road. The modification will construct the protected double left turn from Laurel Road to Main Street to accommodate the traffic demands. The final part of the project will be the paving and striping.
