Detention Facility (Hibbard Park) and Associated Storm Sewers
Phase 2 Work in Hibbard Park has started.  The Contractor, V3 Companies, has installed temporary chain-link construction fencing, temporary tree protection fencing, and wood protection mats in Hibbard Park.   For the remainder of January, the Contractor will continue with mobilization activities and preparations for the upcoming excavation and Storm Trap installation, as well as storm sewer installations in the area.  Some existing light poles in the Park will be removed, and the Contractor will stage equipment.

In February, the Contractor will begin construction in Hibbard Park.  Construction activities will include installation of a underground steel casing to receive a 36-inch diameter storm sewer and installation of a soil retention system to prepare for excavation for the underground stormwater detention facility.  


Residents should anticipate heavy construction traffic in the area from mid-February through May as excavated materials are hauled  away, and over 500 precast concrete vault pieces are delivered.  Once the detention facility has been installed, restoration activities are expected to commence mid-May. The Park is anticipated to be seeded and the Contractor's equipment removed from the site by June.

In early March, traffic control will be set up in preparation for storm sewer work along Glenview Road, starting west of Hibbard Park. The work is scheduled to begin later in March and continue through the end of May.  In early May, storm sewer installations on Glenview Road east of Hibbard Park will begin and are expected to be completed by the end of July.  Storm sewer installations along Ramona Road, Beverly Drive, and Hill Street are scheduled during the months of June, followed by sidewalk, driveway, and roadway restoration July through August.  Final landscape restorations will occur through September.
