Paving projects scheduled
Posted: Friday, July 30, 2010 9:56 pm
Union City Public Works Director Steve Ladd is urging Union City residents to exercise safety precautions as the city prepares to begin several paving projects.
“Safety is of the utmost importance during this time. Heavy equipment and trucks will be operating in these work areas, as well as a milling machine, used to grind up the existing asphalt,” Ladd said.
“These areas will be very dusty with an unusual amount of noise present. Safety devices are a part of all equipment, however it is imperative that everyone stay clear of this construction equipment.”
He especially wishes to urge parents to take extra precaution with their children, while they are playing outside, going to and from school or for any other reason they may need to be outside in the construction area. Pet owners need to heed these safety precautions, as well.
Ford Construction will begin repaving projects in the very near future. TDOT will be inspecting all work completed in the construction zones.
The affected areas are as follows:
• East Church Street from South Division to Adams Street
• East Exchange Street from South Division to Adams Street
• High Street from South Ury Street to Adams Street
• Pleasant Valley Road from Reelfoot Avenue to City Limits
• South Division from East Church Street to East Main Street
• South Ury street from High Street to East Exchange Street
• South Morgan Street from High Street to East Exchange Street
• South Home Street from High Street to East Exchange Street
• South Dobbins Street from High Street to East Exchange Street
• South Clover Street from High Street to East Exchange Street
• South Adams Street from High Street to East Exchange Street
“We ask for continued patience from our residents during this final phase of updating the infrastructure in the affected areas,” Ladd said. “Once completed these residents will be proud of the accomplishments made to their area, although it has taken several years to complete. We appreciate the residents continued support during this difficult task.”
