Notice to Cascade Township Property Owners Regarding Local Street Resurfacing
Local Road Resurfacing
The Kent County Road Commission, in collaboration with Cascade Township, is contracting with Superior Asphalt to complete a full-width repaving of select local streets. If you are receiving this letter, your street has been selected for resurfacing during the 2021 construction season.
About the Project:
The resurfacing project will include the repaving of streets with hot mix asphalt.
Access to residences will be maintained during the project. However, gravel ramps to driveways may be removed for brief periods.
These restricted periods will be kept to a minimum.
Sprinklers, Invisible Dog Fences, Homeowner-Placed Utilities:
- If you need access to your driveway during paving work, please connect with an on-site contractor or inspector who can assist you.
Underground sprinkling systems, invisible dog fencing or other private homeowner-placed underground utilities are not
permitted in the public right-of-way. This is the area that directly abuts the road and generally extends about 15 feet past the pavement on either side of the road. If you have one or more of these in the right-of-way, please note:
- If you have a sprinkler system, invisible fence or other private underground lines within 3 feet of the road, it is your responsibility to flag or stake the area before the paving work begins.
- When possible, the contractor will make every attempt to not harm the marked assets.
- Any damage to homeowner-placed underground lines or utilities will be the owner’s responsibility.
- Homeowners are asked to turn off sprinkler zones that border the road for the project’s duration.
KCRC offers its contractors flexibility in scheduling to achieve the best contract price possible. This stretches tax dollars and allows for more miles of road improvements.
- Work may be conducted anytime between 7 a.m. and 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Occasional Sunday work may be required to complete the project within the contracted time frame.
- KCRC will make every effort to post yard signs before the start of the project that read: “Please Do Not Park on Roads.” Once these signs are posted, the project will begin within 48 hours.
- Factors such as weather, equipment issues or simultaneous projects may impact the timing of work, so the “exact” day-to-day schedule cannot be provided.
Upon completion of the project, grass in the right-of-way will be restored by KCRC within two to four weeks. Topsoil and grass seed will be placed in disturbed areas. It is the homeowner’s responsibility to water and maintain the area to assist with regrowth.
