Subject: Yount Street Paving Project to Begin April 3, 2019
At the March 5, 2019, Council Meeting, the Town Council approved and awarded a construction contract to Granite Construction Company in an amount of $445,052.20 for the reconstructing and repaving of Yount Street from Washington Street to Mount Street (MT-3019). This project uses local Measure T monies, which is a countywide half-cent sales tax used for street improvements. This project follows the recent waterline replacement project that was completed in February 2019.
The process for reconstruction on Yount Street between Washington Street and Mount Street will occur in multiple phases:
Phase 1: Identifying the depth of utilities and soil sampling for pavement design. No parking will be allowed on Yount Street between Finnell and Mount on April 3 and 4. During this time, there will be one-way traffic control.
Phase 2: The work will include asphalt demolition, grading, and placement of new roadway. This work will begin the third week of April, if not earlier. The contractor will provide resident notification for those impacted by the work.
During construction in Phase 2, Yount Street will be accessible to local traffic only with delays up to 15 minutes. All work will be done between 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. to adhere to the Town’s noise and construction rules. Detours will be set up and local traffic may want to avoid this area during the construction period.
A Granite Construction Foreman will be on site during work hours. If you have any questions, please contact project General Foreman Calvin Tolman at (707) 489-1282 or Project Engineer Erik Owenson at (707) 485-3780.
The Town of Yountville and Granite Construction Company request that everyone obey the traffic control and follow detours as it provides safety of the public and the workers on site.
