On March 15, 2021, the Public Works Department will oversee the removal of asphalt on Lake Highland Drive, between Ferris Avenue and Mills Avenue. Removal of the asphalt will prepare the area for the upcoming Lake Highland Utility Improvement Project. We expect the contractor to complete the project in three weeks.

Please be advised, once the contractor removes the asphalt, the roadway’s original brick pavers will be visible and accessible by vehicle. The original brick street exposure is temporary and upon completion the Lake Highland Utility Relocation-Improvement project, the street will be reconstructed and returned to brick.

Should the contractor experience unforeseen circumstances or adverse weather, it may create delays that prolong the project. Should the contractor experience unforeseen conditions, the contractor will have the option to work on weekends. Weekend hours will resemble regular project hours.

The area marked in area is where residents will notice crews, vehicles and equipment present. Please use caution while traveling through the project area.
