Main Lane will be working on driveways and sidewalks on the north half of Seattle East of Carlsbad beginning January 30 through February 20. Their goal is to complete the work as quickly as possible at each driveway. Temporary material will be placed to maintain access to residences.

As they remove the existing roadway pavement they will be removing driveway aprons and sidewalks. They will be placing temporary materials that will be a drivable surface to maintain access to homes. They will also remove mailboxes so they are not damaged during construction. Residents will utilize the community mailbox at the intersection of Carlsbad and Seattle street to collect their mail. Existing mailboxes will be re-installed after the new paving, driveways, and sidewalks are installed on the roadway. If you have an emergency that requires immediate access to your driveway please call Junior Luna at 832-203-2613 or email Weston.Ulbricht@mc2civil.com

On January 13 from 9:00am – 11:00am, contractors will be turning off water to the 16000 block of Seattle Street to conduct another repair. Residents in the area will experience a disruption to water services.

January 11, 2022

Sanitary Sub – Continue with services on South side of street from Carlsbad to Senate

December 30, 2022 

Starting January 2nd/3rd of the New Year, we will be shifting traffic into Phase 2 Construction. Everyone that lives west of Carlsbad is strongly advised to use Carlsbad to get in or out to Senate Ave. This will allow each resident to get where they are going quicker as there will be construction traffic as well as residential traffic both ways east of Carlsbad. There will be flagged traffic during this time. Please be patient as we will do our best to keep traffic flowing throughout the project.

Residents on the north side of the street east of Carlsbad (along Phase 2 construction) will have to begin using the community mailboxes at Carlsbad beginning January 2nd or 3rd.

Starting January 3rd, a subcontractor will begin on constructing driveways west of Carlsbad starting with the driveways closest to Carlsbad and working towards the sound wall. 4 driveways will be removed at a time and will be prepared for concrete. The idea is to have 4 driveways removed and replaced in a span of 4-5 days. during construction of the driveways, the residents are welcome to park on the new pavement in front of their residence.

Starting the week of January 9th, the sanitary sewer subcontractor will begin on the sanitary heading west from Carlsbad to the sound wall. When the sanitary crew begins, we will be flagging traffic around their dirt piles on the street. The idea is to keep the driveway crew ahead of the sanitary crew on the north side of the street so when the sanitary crew catches up, the people across the road will already be back in their new driveway. Please be patient as this area will get congested with construction traffic.

Contractors will be putting in temporary aprons so residents can access their driveways until they pour aprons after January 2.

December 20, 2022

Concrete curbing will be installed for Phase 1 starting tomorrow at 7am. 

More sanitary sewer manhole testing was completed. Service connections for residences on the new section of sewer pipe will be occurring over the coming days. 

 

December 15, 2022

The contractor is scheduled to pour concrete for Phase 1 for a small section at the end of the street near the sound wall on Friday, 12/16/22 around noon.

The contractor will green-saw the new pavement on Sunday to limit any expansion cracking.

 

December 14, 2022

The contractor is scheduled to pour concrete for Phase 1 (from Carlsbad to the sound wall on the north side of the street) on Saturday, 12/17/22.
The pour is scheduled for 7AM for the first truck to arrive onsite, however, their crews will be preparing
for the concrete pour starting around 6AM. Please be patient as there will be construction-related noise.
Construction traffic will be back and forth along the entire stretch of Seattle St. to Senate Ave.

 

The contractor is scheduled to begin demolition on Phase 2 (from Carlsbad to Senate Ave on the north side of the street) on Wednesday, 1/4/23. Residents along this section of paving (north side) will lose access
to their driveways in the short term until we can get temporary material installed to re-open them. Also,
residents on the north side of the street will need to start picking their mail up in the City of Jersey Village
installed mailboxes along Carlsbad.

If you have an emergency that requires immediate access to your driveway, please call Jr. Luna @
(832) 203-2613 or email weston.ulbricht@mc2civil.com.

October 31, 2022

Work on sanitary sewer installation begins this week. As they install the new sanitary sewer run, they will be removing driveways between the sidewalk and the street. They will be placing temporary material that will be a drivable surface to maintain access to your property.

As they remove the existing roadway pavement, they will be removing the driveways and sidewalk. They will be placing temporary material that will be a drivable surface to maintain access to your property. They will also have to remove your mailbox so we do not damage it during construction. A community mailbox has been installed at the Carlsbad intersection so your mail can still be delivered. Your existing mailbox will be re-installed after the new paving, driveways, and sidewalks are installed on your section of roadway.

Notices were places on the front doors of the homes being impacted by this.
