Project seems to be progressing well.  All poles have been erected on the east side of Clinton St. including light heads.  All lights on signal poles in place.  Contractor was working on wiring from pull boxes into light poles.  I looked at the pre-pour samples of porous concrete.  The concrete looks good.  The city has 3 choices of colors which a committee will decide.  The colors are brown, green and red.  I reviewed the documentation for this project and it looks good.  The city may want to add contractor’s equipment to their diaries.

Project seems to be progressing well.  Some items are ahead of schedule.  The contractor is now working on the west side of Clinton St. boring conduit and pouring pole foundations.  Poles for west side should be delivered in 7 weeks.  Bridge poles to be delivered April 4-11.  Base covers are not presently available and contractor is working on a solution to get the correct covers.  There are questions about which concrete repair areas are paid for and which the contractor is responsible for.  City of Defiance has decided not to stamp the porous concrete and will receive a discount from the contractor.  They have chosen the brown color for the porous concrete.  The benches should be delivered 5-7 weeks.  City of Defiance has decided on Ginco trees.  This was a good progress meeting discussing many problems throughout the project.

Visited the project today to go over what had been completed last year and what needed to be completed this spring.  Most of the paving work is complete with the exception of the far east of the project and connections to drives.  May need to mill out some pavement on the west side of Simon St. as this appears to be rough and not uniform.  Sidewalks are complete but need backfilled with topsoil and seeded.  Other small items need completed and the city inspector has a punch list for the contractor to complete.

HAR-ADA-LINCOLN AVE PH14/26/2011Project
Some work has been completed this spring.  Mostly grading and sealing sidewalk joints.  I talked with Phil today about the revised completion date and completing this project this spring.  We discussed that the village should put the contractor on notice that they are on liquidated damages and they should submit a revised schedule to complete the project this spring.  There are contract items that need to be completed above the normal punch list items i.e. Paving and grading on the east end of the project, placing asphalt in drives, brick for handicap ramps, seeding and raising manholes.

I stopped by the project today and the contractor has begun to place new sidewalk on the east side of Cable Rd. between Spring and Market St.  Concrete was being placed from the road using flaggers and traffic seemed to be moving well.  The contractor has laid out the location of sidewalk to be placed north of Market St. on the east side of Cable Rd.  I am not sure of the official start date of this project as was not informed when they started.  It appears that the contractor has been there a few days as there are some handicap curb ramps already installed.

The city held a progress meeting today.  There appear to be very little complaints from the public to the work being performed which is supposing due to the nature of the work and the disruption to the property owners.  The waterline is 99% complete and the storm sewer will be complete by the end of the week.  AT&T appears to be holding back construction a bit as they were to be out of the way by Sept 1st and still working.  They should be complete by the end of the week.  This will allow the contractor to begin milling the road on Sept 26th.  I have advised the city and contractor to get their schedule updated and revise the completion date reflecting the delays so far due to the utilities.  The contractor still believes they can finish the project by the original completion date but I think it would be advisable to revise the completion date now.  A quarterly report for the DBE goal is due to the city by the end of the month.  The city will be testing the trenches for compaction and lining up testing for the subgrade and agg. Base soon.  I performed a documentation review today with Nathan and everything looks to be in good shape.  Pay items are well documented and they are keeping track of materials as they arrive on the project.

Han-Crystal Ave11/1/2011Project
The City had a progress meeting today but I was not able to attend.  I met with Nathan and Chad after the meeting to discuss the project.  The contractor is scheduled to start paving the base on the project at the Melrose intersection beginning tomorrow.  The asphalt contractor will remain on the job after that until the job is finished.  The striping will need to be temporary as it will be too cold to place Thermoplastic stripes this late in the season.   The job will not be complete this year but the hope is to have everything paved and have full use of the roadway section.  The contractor will continue to work on the sidewalk and drives until weather no longer permits.  The city has discussed with the contractor the protection of any hazards that will be left through the winter and will follow up to make sure all is safe.  The City should agree on a revised completion date with the contractor to allow for the finishing of the project in the spring and incorporate the delays that occurred on the project for extra work and utilities.

Han-Crystal Ave11/8/2011Project
The paving is complete at the intersection of Melrose and Crystal Ave.  This allows the intersection to be open to traffic.  The paving has begun between Blanchard St  and Foulke.  The pavers not on the project today.  The city is hopeful that all areas will have asphalt on them in the next week or so.  Sidewalks and drives will not be complete this year.  They will need to be completed next spring.

Han-Crystal Ave11/18/2011Project
  It appears as though paving will be complete today including surface course.  The contractor continues to work on sidewalk and drive approaches.  There will be work that needs completed next spring but how much still remains to be seen as to how much work can be completed yet this year due to weather.  The road should be able to be used this winter.  Temporary stripping will need to be in place.  The city and the contractor should have a completion date agreed upon by the time the contractor pulls out for the winter.  Any areas that may cause a safety concern through the winter should be addressed.

Han-Crystal Ave12/7/2011Project
It appears that much of the construction has slowed down for the winter.  The contractor was on site working on sidewalks and drives.  Most of the sidewalk and drives are in place from Blanchard St to Foulke.  All the drives on Crystal Ave appear to have access for the winter.  There will be work to complete this spring as this project will not be complete yet this year.  Contractor will want to cover all exposed dirt areas with straw for the winter to avoid erosion.  Grading should be done in all areas to avoid sudden drop-offs from sidewalks.
