As of this morning we've been told that the asphalt contractor will begin pulverizing Klatt road in the project zone on Monday, September 9th. Road grading will then occur with asphalt installation planned for within the week.
The utility extension construction is completed on Klatt road. The City of New London and Town of Mukwa are working together to replace the full width of the road in this section where the work took place instead of just patching in the sections that were removed for the utility installation. A timeline for the asphalt replacement on Klatt road has been delayed a bit. The Town of Mukwa has plans to re-pave Pine Ridge Drive which intersects the project zone on Klatt road. At this time we will wait for Pine Ridge Drive to be resurfaced first, rather than installing a new asphalt surface on Klatt Road and allowing contractors to immediately drive heavy equipment on that new surface to access to Pine Ridge Drive.
The City of New London will be extending water and sewer service along Klatt Road from New London High School to a new development planned just south of the Klatt Road/Pine Ridge Drive intersection. The utility extension will be placed in the ditch along the south side of Klatt Road. This work is anticipated to being the week of July 15, 2019 and take about a month to complete (weather permitting). During this time Klatt Road will be closed off during construction, local residents will need to take a detour route to Jennings Street during the construction.

7-16-19: Today we've been informed that the contractor will begin this utility extension work on Wednesday July 16th. The contractor has indicated that during times of construction (around 7am -5pm) they will have the street closed off to vehicle traffic but the street should be open during the times they are not working.
