Contractors are working on Phase I subgrade improvements on southbound section of Lakeridge Drive at this time. We are undercutting 18" of the unsuitable subgrade and replacing it with 18" of select fill placed on top of a geosynthetic pavement material to help stabilize the subgrade. Concrete crews should be mobilizing in the next few weeks to start installing forms and laying concrete.

The concrete crusher is on site today busting up the old concrete to make way for reconstruction. The crusher will complete much of the crushing today on Treasure Hill, Wood Bridge and Ridgecrest (rain or shine). Did you realize the concrete crusher does not have a driver? The operator uses a remote control to guide the piece of machinery.
Check out the crusher in action!

This project will consist of reconstructing all the concrete streets, over 1.5 miles, in the Forest Lake Estates area. Included in this project will be reconstructing the base underneath the pavement with lime stabilization, and in some cases, may include excavating out the unsuitable material and replacing it with select fill. The portion of Forest Lake Drive will be 8” of reinforced concrete, and all other streets will be 6.5” reinforced concrete.
Estimated construction start date is May 1, 2017, and estimated completion date is August 31, 2018. Construction will be split in 3 phases.
- Phase 1 will be the construction of Lakeridge Drive, Treasure Hill Road, Wood Bridge Drive, and Ridgecrest Place
- Phase 2 will be the construction of Forest Lake Drive from Lakeridge Drive to the RR Tracks
- Phase 3 will be the construction of Forest Lake Drive from the RR Tracks to Highway 71
Residents will have access to their properties throughout construction, but portions of the roadways will be closed as well. Please refer to all road construction and detour signage.
