Those wishing the construction on Wheel Road would wrap up, will have to wait until November.
The Department of Public Works (DPW) said Thursday that work is approximately 20 percent complete on the project, and that the expected completion date is November of this year.
Wheel Road has been closed north of Cedar Lane to south of Loyal Lane since May 28.
According to the DPW, the project itself involves completely removing and reconstructing the roadway on Wheel Road from north of Cedar Lane to Glenangus Drive, a distance of 3,643 feet.
Another section of road, to the Bynum Run Bridge, will have the top 2 inches of asphalt milled off and then resurfaced. The total distance of this work is about 645 feet.
With 20 percent of the work complete as of Thursday, DPW said the project is currently behind schedule.
Here’s a look at the work DPW said has already been completed:
- Sediment control devices (slit fence, stone dikes) have been installed 100 precent
- Tree clearing along the side of the existing road to allow for realignment has been completed, and utility line relocations are in work
- Installation of culverts, stormdrain pipes, stormdrain inlet structure is approximately 80 percent complete
- The smaller of two retaining walls is complete, excavation has started for the other retaining wall
- Road surface demolition is complete, but regrading and realignment of the road is just beginning
