Forms have been set and prep work has been done to start pouring the new concrete pavement. The concrete pour began at 5:00 a.m. today and will continue as long as the weather is favorable. The contractor is hopeful he will be able to complete the new pavement on Schertz Parkway in the pour.
The excavation for the new pavement has been completed. The contractor also started the cement stabilization process for the east side of the street. Next week, the contractor will be setting forms for the new concrete pavement. The contractor plans to begin pouring the new concrete pavement at the end of next week.
The curb and gutter have been removed and the street has been excavated to subgrade. Next week, the contractor will be doing some cleanup and prep work so the cement stabilization of the subgrade can start. Cement stabilization will begin early next week and likely continue to the end of the week. After the cement stabilization is complete, the contractor will begin setting things up to pour the new concrete pavement.
On November 12, City Council awarded a construction contract to D & S Concrete Contractors for the reconstruction of Schertz Parkway from Maske Road to Woodland Oaks Drive. D & S Concrete Contractors plans to begin Phase I of the project on April 7, 2020, by reconstructing the east side of Schertz Parkway. The existing asphalt street section will be replaced with stronger, more durable concrete pavement. The median island on Woodland Oaks Drive will also be modified. The front of the median will be pulled back, out of the crosswalk area, and the width of the median will be decreased to allow for two lanes for cars approaching Schertz Parkway. The asphalt pathway on the east side of Schertz parkway will also be re-built. The new pathway section will be similar to the re-built roadway between Live Oak Road and Maske Road which was completed in March 2018. Traffic will be restricted to one lane in each direction during construction. The Woodland Oaks intersection will also need to be closed for a portion of the construction process. The complete reconstruction is estimated to take five months.
