A contractor working for the City of Coweta will begin milling and repaving projects on four residential streets on September 14th. During this work period, between the work hours of 7:00am to 5:00pm, residents may not have access from their driveway to the street, or to their street at all, depending upon planned construction activities for the day. Vehicles may not be parked on the street in an active project area during the designated work hours. Vehicles may be parked on the street outside of these hours, if conditions allow.
To ensure their plans are not adversely impacted, residents are encouraged to park their cars a block over or on a nearby cross street and walk to them to exit their neighborhood if they plan to leave after 7am during the active phase of work. Likewise, if they plan to return home before 5pm, they may need to park their car on a nearby street and walk to their home. These projects will involve removing the existing pavement from curb to curb, fixing issues with the sub base if necessary, and repaving the area. The contractor expects to begin work after 7:00 a.m. each morning and complete the work before 5:00 p.m. each evening.
The projects and preliminary timelines for those projects are:
- Country Village 285th E Ave between 136th St S and 137th Pl S - September 14th to September 23rd.
- Country Village 286th E Ave between 136th St S and 137th Pl S - September 24th to October 2nd.
- Country Village 287th E Ave between 136th St S and 137th Pl S - October 5th to October 13th.
- The Woods E 113th St S between 274th E Ave and 277th E Ave - October 14th to October 23rd.
As with any construction project, inclement weather may delay the start or the completion of any of these projects and good weather conditions may result in earlier completion times. The contractor will be leaving door hangers for effected residents prior to the beginning of work in the area. Drivers in the construction areas are encouraged to follow directional signage and drive carefully in the construction area to avoid workers and equipment. Milling projects can result in sharp drop-offs in construction areas so be aware and drive slowly.
We apologize for the inconvenience this project may cause to residents in the project area. The designated streets are in serious need of repair, and we ask for everyone’s patience and cooperation as we complete this necessary work.
