Work to begin at Racho Road between Eureka and Pennsylvania

The City of Taylor has contracted with Fiore Enterprises, LLC to repair sections of Racho Road from Eureka Road to Pennsylvania Road.
Work is scheduled to begin October 5 and will last approximately three to four weeks. Working hours will be 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday.
Racho Road will be worked on one half at a time to allow traffic to continue during and after working hours. During construction, only south bound traffic will be allowed. The west lane will be closed and worked on first with the east lane open. At Eureka, the east lane will signed “one way” allowing traffic in the south bound direction only, and at Pennsylvania “road closed” signs will be placed to prevent north bound traffic.
When the west lane is completed and the concrete cured, the east lane will be closed and traffic shifted to the west. At Eureka, the west lane will be signed “one way” allowing traffic in the south bound direction only, and at Pennsylvania “road closed” signs will be placed to prevent north bound traffic.
The contractor will begin by setting up traffic signage and closing the lanes on October 5, then saw cutting the sections of concrete pavement to be removed, followed by pavement removal, base preparation, structure adjustment and repair, and placing and curing concrete.
After the final concrete placement has cured for a minimum of five to seven days, work will begin on the other half of the street. Due to the extent of the street repair areas, access may be limited for short periods of time while work is being performed, but construction will be staged so that all driveways will be kept open for access to properties.
Trash pick-up will continue on the regularly scheduled day. Continue to place the trash receptacles at curbside on the opposite side of the street that work is taking place on, or at the center of the street next to a repair area.
The City of Taylor apologizes for any inconvenience this work may cause. The City and Fiore will try to limit the inconvenience as best as possible. Your cooperation in this matter will be greatly appreciated. Should you have any questions contact Greg Mayhew, City Engineer, at (734) 374-1473, or by email at gmayhew@ci.taylor.mi.us.
