Saddle Creek Road Improvements Update 7-5-18

We hope that everyone had a safe and happy 4th of July celebration!

YOUR MEASURE A DOLLARS AT WORK – As you may have noticed, our contractor, T&S Intermodal, Inc., has completed much of the preparation work to allow for a new asphalt surface to be installed on Saddle Creek Drive and Oak Creek Drive.  So far, they have removed and replaced several settled and broken concrete drainage inlets, and areas of associated concrete curb and gutter.    They have installed a required concrete handicapped access ramp at Saddle Creek Ln., and have installed conduit under the roadway to allow for future irrigation, electrical and communication systems.

Since the roads were initially installed in the 1990’s, there has been a drainage problem on Oak Creek Drive near Grandview Court.  As you can imagine, we wanted to address any problems with drainage or culverts BEFORE any new pavement is installed.  We investigated the problem, which we have determined is an approximate 200 feet of crushed culvert pipe that must now be replaced.  We know there would have to be some repair work underground in this area, but the 200 foot section was a real disappointment that will cost an additional $78,000.  We were able to reconfigure other portions of the project to keep the total work within the $726,330 budget.

As of today, July 5 and extending through July 13, the contractor will begin the following work that will result in bumps in the road surface (slow down) and traffic delays. There will also be delays of up to 45 minutes in accessing side streets and driveways that directly enter off of Saddle Creek and Oak Creek Drives; as the asphalt grinding is taking place in those areas.  Please have patience, drive with caution and respect traffic control measures and workers!

  • Grinding old sections of asphalt to prepare for the new asphalt
  • Removing sections of asphalt that have failed and will be replaced completely
  • Excavating a trench and installing a new culvert pipe on Oak Creek Drive near Grandview Ct.


Again, please be careful around construction and know this will be short lived, and wonderful one completed!  Thank you for your support and cooperation.
