Stadium Street Project
The Stadium Street Project:
As the City of High Point prepares for new downtown development, portions of N. Elm Street, Lindsay Street, Pine Street and English Road will receive underground utility improvements.
Lindsay Street Updates:
Lindsay Street will tentatively have work begin work April 1. The construction will begin between Gatewood and Ferndale and will be the 1st of 3 phases. The project will move southbound between Gatewood and English. Detour maps and routes will be provided.
Crews have set up the closure from Lindsay to Ferndale and milled the asphalt. They began installing the sewer line on Wednesday and completed 84 linear feet on the first day - our out the 192 linear feet closure. Next week they will finish installing the sewer toward Ferndale for Phase 1 and pave over the road. They will then switch the closure and move on to Phase 2 on April 15.
This week, Garney crews finished installing the sewer line between Gatewood and Ferndale for Phase 1, and then tested the line, repaved the road and installed curb and gutter. Next, they will work on potholing on Church Avenue and Lindsay Street, while continuing to install sewer toward the existing tie-in. Lindsay Street will remain closed to through traffic from Gatewood to Ferndale until Monday, April 15, and then the closure will switch to the Ferndale intersection to English Road.
This week, Garney crews have continued to install sewer lines and have set up to pave on Friday. If it rains, paving will be moved to Monday. Next week they will continue to install sewer. Lindsay Street remains closed to through traffic from Ferndale to English.
Elm Street Updates:
Contractor crews have continued to install storm and sewer lines toward English Road, while working on asphalt and concrete installation. The storm sewer is complete, and the sewer line to English Road will also be finished this week. Garney crews will then finish testing the sewer lines as well as paving through the Church intersection, weather permitting. They'll continue working on the remainder of paving, curb and sidewalk, also weather dependent. Electric crews have completed the concrete work on the ductbank up to the Church intersection and are now patching asphalt over it. They've finished all of the hand holes and pull boxes up to the north side of the intersection, and will begin working in the intersection with the ductbank construction next week.
Contractors have completed the remaining pipe for the project and finished paving the Church Avenue intersection. They began testing the sewer, and the DOT portion of the project in English Road was completed and paved. Electric crews installed multiple 7x7 vaults in Church Avenue, and have continued to install ductbank in the intersection. Due to the junction of utilities there, there are around 30 conduits in the area. For the remainder of the week and into next week, Garney crews will finish testing the sewer, finish paving and concrete work, and work on moving material out of the lot. Electric will be through the Elm and Church intersection and continue heading towards English Road. The Church intersection will open once traffic signals have been installed.
