Subject: Hopper Creek Path Along Heather Street Closed From June 12 to June 23, 2017 For Pathway Surface Replacement
As a part of the Town’s adopted American’s with Disability Act (ADA) Transition Plan, the Hopper Creek Path along Heather Street was identified as requiring removal of the current asphalt path to be replaced with concrete and ADA ramps and markings in order to comply with current State and Federal ADA guidelines.
The pathway along Heather Street from Mulberry Street to Oak Circle Park, including the pedestrian bridge will be closed from June 12, 2017 to approximately June 23, 2017 for the contractor to complete this work. Construction work will not start before 9:00 a.m. in accordance with the Town’s noise ordinance. Parking may be impacted along Heather Street during this project as well. Once completed residents will be able to enjoy a fully ADA accessible (American’s with Disability Act) path.
The contractor for this project is MC Construction. As a part of the project, the worn and raised asphalt pathway surface will be replaced with a concrete surface that will have a longer service life than the prior asphalt surfacing. There will also be a curb installed along the walkway to help eliminate the mud and debris that accumulates and makes for hazardous footing during extended wet weather conditions. There will also be ADA accessible curb cuts along the Heather Street parking area. This will allow for ADA access from the parking area to the path and neighborhoods.
The Hopper Creek Pathway and its connector bridge over Hopper Creek at Heather and Oak Leaf Court are an integral part of the town’s pedestrian walking path system interconnecting several neighborhoods.
