Phase 2—Jerrold 
At the beginning of this week, crews completed making the temporary water hookups to each individual home. By Tuesday and Wednesday, utility crews started working on making the watermain connections to the existing lines, just off of New Brighton and at the west block of Jerrold. They plan on continuing watermain installation on Friday, picking up where they left off and heading west towards Prior.

Next week, utility crews will continue installing watermain on the east block of Jerrold. Once that is complete, they will put in the individual water services to each house. By the middle to the end of the week, they will then move to watermain on the west block of Jerrold. 

Phase 3—Prior
On Wednesday of next week (7/28), crews are scheduled to reclaim (grind up) the existing asphalt street pavement from Jerrold to County Road D. NOTE: this reclamation work is a couple of weeks ahead of schedule, compared to what was originally planned. After the road is reclaimed, residents will be able to drive and park on the gravel surface until utility work begins.

Phase 4A—West Block of Edgewater
Throughout the beginning of the week, utility crews finished the sanitary forcemain installation and filled in the pits.

On Wednesday and Thursday of next week, crews are tentatively scheduled to remove small portions of existing curb that is marked for replacement.

On Monday and Tuesday, utility crews finished installing water services on the east half of the block. Utility crews then moved to installing the storm sewer improvements, starting at Cleveland and making their way east towards Prior. By Friday, crews hope to be at the intersection of Prior with the storm sewer. Also on Friday, crews will begin on building the road and getting the road to a gravel surface, starting near Cleveland and working their way east. 

On Monday of next week utility crews will finish storm sewer installation in the intersection of Prior. Road crews will additionally continue working on building up the street, and are aiming to have the entire block to gravel by Thursday. All necessary testing on the watermain is scheduled to be completed by early next week, in which then all residents will be taken off temporary water.

The crews are tentatively scheduled to finish the storm sewer at the intersection with Prior by the end of the week, which would then complete all utility work in Phase 1B.

Phase 2—Jerrold 
On Thursday and Friday of this week, crews reclaimed (grinded up) the existing asphalt street pavement from New Brighton to just short of the cul-de-sac on the west block. During this, temporary water installation also began.

Once the temporary water is setup, and testing complete, crews plan on making the hookups to individual homes late next week or possibly at the beginning of the following week. Be on the look-out for notices at your door, regarding more information on timing and details of the individual hookups to each house. Temporary mailboxes will also be set up on Prior Ave between Glenpaul Ave and County Rd D starting on Monday 7/12, and will remain in place during the construction of Phase 2.

Phase 4A – West Block of Edgewater
On Friday, crews reclaimed (grinded up) a strip of the existing asphalt on the north side of the road, in preparation of the sanitary forcemain bypass installation the following week.

Starting on Monday of next week, the bypass for the sanitary forcemain will be installed from around mid-block to the west, through the cul-de-sac. Trenchless rehabilitation work on the forcemain is tentatively scheduled to begin on Tuesday and continue throughout the remainder of the week.

Phase 1A – East Block of Glenpaul
Last week, utility crews installed new storm sewer on the east end of Glenpaul, near New Brighton. Crews worked on the remaining few service connections on the block. All the properties in Phase 1A are off temporary water, and all water services are turned back on.

Road crews are starting this week, to begin constructing the road, starting at New Brighton and then working their way west. By the end of the week or early next week, the contractor is planning to have the road completely covered with gravel, in preparation of the curb installation and paving.

Phase 1B –West Block of Glenpaul
Last week, utility crews made connections with the new water services to the existing lines at each property on the west half of the block. A portion of the storm sewer improvements was installed on the west end of Glenpaul, right off of Cleveland, to aid in drainage of the roadway.

This week, utility crews will continue with watermain installation from mid-block towards Prior. Once that is complete, they are scheduled to begin putting in the remaining water services on the east side of the block. Once all the water main and water services are installed and all necessary testing is complete, residents will be taken off temporary water.

Phase 2 - Jerrold
On Thursday (7/8), a day later than previously scheduled, crews are scheduled to reclaim (grind up) the existing asphalt street pavement from New Brighton to just short of the cul-de-sac on the west block.
