Paving Has Begun!

The contractor was out on Saturday to prime the street. The prime is a sticky tack-coat that goes on the binder level of asphalt to create a bond between it and the new surface asphalt. I was onsite and things went very smoothly, thanks to the residents for their cooperation!

The surface asphalt placement began this morning. Swainwood Cul-de-sac, Buttonwood, and a little bit of Alvin were paved by noon. Unfortunately, there were some problems at the asphalt plant, and Peter Baker (the asphalt paver) had to leave for the day. But not to worry, they'll be back tomorrow (praying there is no rain) to complete the job!

Driveways will be cleaned up and prepped for asphalt starting on Wednesday.

Landscape restoration continues. Once the asphalt is complete, the landscapers will be able to finish their prep work and then install the sod.
