Beginning as early as August 3, 2022, the City's contractor, PCI, will continue construction with the next section of Cedar Heights Drive from Huntington Road to approximately 4710 Cedar Heights (Learn and Play Preschool and Daycare). Cedar Heights Drive will be opened from the Viking Road roundabout to the newly established Huntington Road roundabout. Huntington Road will be open with a temporary asphalt milled surface to the Huntington roundabout. North of the Huntington roundabout will be for local access only as crews work to repave this section.
For those properties at 5011 to 5117 Cedar Heights, temporary access will be provided to the south towards the newly established Huntington Road roundabout. For those that live on Viking Place and Prairie Street, access will be restored to Cedar Heights and the old temporary access will be removed. For 4803 and 4710 Cedar Heights, temporary access will be provided to the north towards Cedar Hill Road. The overall detour will remain the same by utilizing Viking Road, Prairie Parkway, and Greenhill Road.
This staging switch does vary from the original approach of first completing Huntington and then Cedar Heights. The contractor feels this switch can reduce overall construction time with all the underground that was completed for this stage over the past few months. Huntington will be closed in approximately two months' time where the final tie-in will occur to the Huntington roundabout.
During construction, rural-type mailboxes will be removed and temporarily relocated. The contractor will coordinate the location of the relocated mailboxes with the U.S. Postal Service. Normally, all mailboxes are relocated to the adjacent side streets. Once reconstruction is completed, the mailboxes will be returned to their original location. Please do not park adjacent to the relocated mailboxes. The residents will be responsible for removing any decorative attachments to the mailboxes and relocating any landscape plantings within the right-of-way. The contractor will be responsible for removing and temporarily relocating the mailbox and post only.
