This week the contractor removed additional concrete curb and sidewalk on Silver Trail, Harmony, and Hickory as well as framing and preparing for the concrete placement.  They poured concrete curb and sidewalk on part Harmony, Anna, Flagstone, Hickory, and Ridge.  Unfortunately, due to the rain this week less than originally planned was accomplished.  For pouring new concrete it cannot be raining and the hole where the concrete is being placed needs to not have standing water.  When they are unable to place new concrete, it may also stop the progress of their removal operations to avoid getting too far ahead of the crew placing the concrete.

On Saturday, the contractor plans to work continuing to frame and prepare for concrete placement on Silver Trail.

On Monday, the contractor plans to place concrete on Silver Trail.  Tuesday placing concrete on Hickory.  The first half of the week they would be removing the portions of Ridge, Harmony, and Silver Trail that still need concrete to be removed.  They also will be continuing to follow behind the removals with framing and prepping, followed by pouring the concrete in those areas.   Mid to late next week they project starting removals in the Oak Hill subdivision.
