DOWNTOWN STREETSCAPE - WEEKLY UPDATE NOVEMBER 9th, 2017

November 09, 2017

DOWNTOWN STREETSCAPE-WEEKLY UPDATE NOVEMBER 9th, 2017 CONTACT: Marla Jones Dan Kirk Director of Business & Community Development Street Commissioner (812) 275-1602 (812) 275-1631 mjones@bedford.in.us dkirk@bedford.in.us Construction is underway to update the streetscape in downtown Bedford. J Street is complete apart from some finishing touches that are to be addressed before the project completion. Construction will continue on I Street between 15th & 16th Streets. Sidewalk construction on I Street will continue to move from 16th Street north towards 15th Street. Below is a list of activities that we anticipate happening over the next week. A weekly update will be distributed during the remainder of the streetscape construction. Last week’s progress: • Continued construction and placement of the upper level sidewalk for I Street. Size restricted sidewalk placed against the buildings is nearly completed to 15th Street. • Began pouring concrete for locations of steps and walkways on the south half of I Street. • Excavated and poured decorative wall foundations at the north end of I Street. • Mats are still being used in certain areas of the construction to better identify the path for pedestrian access and to make traversing the area easier. • Pedestrian indicated signals on J Street are now functional in sequence with the operation of the traffic signals. Please note that the push buttons themselves will be functional at a later date. What to expect November 10rd thru November 17th • Excavation and installation of the decorative wall foundations at the north end of I Street will continue. Decorative concrete block placement on top of the foundations placed the week prior will begin. • Installation of upper level sidewalk along building fronts will continue north towards 15th street. • Pouring of steps and walkways will continue on the south half of I Street. Temporary access will be adjusted and available to these locations of entry in coordination with the remaining construction activities. • Curb and gutter and lower level sidewalk operations will begin and proceed from 16th Street towards 15th Street. Customer Access: As a reminder, wet concrete needs up to 48 hours to harden and cannot be walked on during that time. Parking: We are working to restore parking on I Street as quickly as possible. If possible, we will attempt to provide a couple of temporary parking spaces in coordination with the remaining construction activities. Once lower sidewalks and curbs are complete, parking will be restored.
