Mt. Pleasant Mapleleaf Drive Project UpdateWritten by Theresa Rose on August 26, 2016
Work has been progressing very well on Mapleleaf Drive. Crews poured the mainline paving on the 2nd phase of Mapleleaf Drive East of Grand Ave. on Tuesday August 23rd. As soon as pavement reaches maturity crews will be sealing joints, pouring trail, and driveways in phase 2. Hickey’s Contracting has been pouring all driveways and sidewalks West of Grand Ave. plan to finish the work West of Grand by Friday September 2nd weather permitting. Jones Contracting will be finishing phase 2 trail and driveways the week of September 5th weather permitting. If all goes as planned Monday August 29th the entire Harvey Drive & Mapleleaf Drive intersection will be open. The plan at this time is to open phase 2 up to traffic from Grand Ave. to Walmart Distribution, Burlington Junction Railway & Lomont the week of September 12th weather permitting. At that time we will close off access to Walmart distribution and Lomont molding truck traffic from Iris Street onto Mapleleaf Drive. Kinney & Sons will be working on storm sewer along the Southside of phase 3 the week of September 5th. This will not affect Walmart Distribution’s access.
