Road Works
The existing roadways in Idlewood Estates are about 15 years old in phase 1 –northern streets, a couple of years less in phase 2 -(southern streets. In general, the roadways in phase 1 are in a little worse condition than phase 2, possibly due to a different contractor and/or a more stringent inspection program that was implement around that time. Bottom line is the asphalt is starting to oxidize and get brittle, therefore we are seeing more fine cracking which allows water infiltration in to the base layers resulting in imminent base failures (potholes). Overall the roadways are still in fairly good structural condition, so before they deteriorate any further, we are going to place a pavement preservation surface called a micro-surface. By placing this new surface now we feel we can preserve the existing pavement for several years instead of waiting the pavement to further deteriorate to the point that it must be completely rebuilt. What you are seeing now is preparatory work getting the roadways ready to receive this new surface. We have rebuilt the entrance area on Crofoot and a short stretch along Plains Trail because there was widespread base deterioration. We have also performed some localized full depth base repairs (patches) and placed some short asphalt level-ups in areas where the soils have shifted and the roadway was uneven.
In mid- October, we have a contractor scheduled to resurface ALL of the roadways within Idlewood with micro-surfacing. Miicro-surfacing is a thin layer (1/4 to 3/8 inch) of specially formulized asphalt emulsion blended with a finely crushed aggregate which is placed as a slurry mixture. The final surface will look similar to a new hot mix asphalt surface. The new surface will cover all of the preparation work we are now preforming (with an exception at the Crofoot entrance which will likely remain as is but will generally match the micro-surface) and will provide a protective coating to seal minor cracking and protect the existing asphalt from further UV deterioration for several years.
The contractor will surface half of a roadway at a time starting in the morning with traffic restored on the new surface later that same evening. The opposite side will be surfaced the following day. Total construction time for the entire subdivision should be 3-4 days.
The micro-surfacing will be a quick process but we need a good communication and coordination plan with the residents to minimize inconveniences and provide the best looking product.
