It was another successful week of work for the Coolidge Highway construction crew in Huntington Woods, project manager Larry Harworth said Tuesday.
“It will only be four weeks on Thursday that we started,” he said. “So we have come a long way in a short time.”
Harworth said crews working on the northbound side of the road are about to complete the underground utility work from Lincoln to 10 Mile in a week and a week and a half. That work includes finishing the storm lines and installing the new water mains.
Once the underground utility work is done on that stretch of road, Harworth said they will begin the road building phase, which includes digging out the old road, replacing it with stone, adding new water drain structures and then pouring the nine inches of concrete that will be the new road.
Crews have already been working on the road building phase for the first half of the road from 11 Mile to Lincoln, Harworth said, and it should be done within a week.
“Things are moving along,” Harworth said, “but we still have a long way to go.”
Harworth said he hasn’t had any complaints from homeowners in the area because he believes they are happy the road is getting repaired and being fixed.
“Bottom line is we haven’t had a lot of rain, so we are doing all right,” he said.
