District 3: Road and Bridge Report (March 2012)

PDFPrintE-mail

The District 3 crew spent a lot of time during road maintenance after the rains we had around the first of the month and now with the heavy rainfall they are back out check and getting them back in order.

The road building crew got Post Oak Road redone from Lee Blvd south to Bishop Road, and the road base was built up and ready to be resurfaced this summer sometime. The rest of the road is in pretty good shape.  However, there are some places we are going to try to patch the edges that are breaking off causing the road to narrow.

The town of Faxon requested us to patch some pot holes in their streets and we hauled in some gravel to for the parking lot around their Community Center.

The ground work has begun on the Museum of Natural History at Medicine Park. The officials ask us to do the initial dozer work on the road to the museum and the parking lot for the new facility.

A large amount of logs and tree limbs had washed against the Cache Creek bridge on County Road 115.  It was moved away from the bridge and burned to prevent damage to the bridge during times of high water.

A number of years ago, the County made a big investment when they paved 82nd Street from Lee Blvd to State Highway 36.  Since then that road has received high traffic particularly trucks from the industrial park and it is beginning to show some wear.  The guys cut out some of the bad spots and filled them with gravel and recovered them with asphalt.  This will extend the life of that road,

The weather is getting warm enough to use the patcher truck on the black-toped roads.  We also repaired some serious pot hole problems on Paradise Valley Road.

The folks in charge of the Pecan Cemetery are expanding it and ask us to haul off some excess dirt.

The Indiahoma Public Schools requested us to haul some dirt they had to an area where they wanted to make a soccer field.  After the material was hauled, we leveled it off for them.

Lee Blvd status: The Cotton Rural Water District and Comanche County Rural Water District #4 have completed their part in moving their water lines.  The contractor for AT&T notified me they have 90% of the new phone lines laid and 50% of them spliced. AT&T was supposed to have their part completed by March 5th.  We are still looking at an April letting of the construction contract.
