Main Street Streetscape Project: Update

May 20, 2019 News

Updated on May 20, 2019:

Bluegrass Contracting and their subcontractor Lawhorn Electric have completed demolition and most electrical prep as well as most of the granite curb, concrete sidewalk, concrete verge, and entrances on the south side of Main from 4th to 5th Streets.

In the next weeks Bluegrass will continue final grade and concrete work on the south side between 4th and 5th Streets. They will drop back and finish Speedway's second Main Street entrance, Church Street, and the change order work. We appreciate Susan Redmon with Cedar Valley Seeding for working on the sodding this week so the area will look nicer for Memorial Day weekend.

And yes, we noticed we placed concrete sidewalk around a pole. The rest of the story is that the State hopes to upgrade signals in the future, but in the meantime we are finishing the work around it. It will be a simple matter for our Public Works department to patch the sidewalk after the State employees remove the old poles.

Bluegrass Contracting and their subcontractor Lawhorn Electric have gotten a lot done in the last four weeks. We’ll try to be more diligent and timely as we get farther in the project. Again we appreciate everyone’s patience and cooperation. Lawhorn did demo up to 4th and Main and electrical prep up towards the Fire Station. Bluegrass Contracting placed granite curb and poured concrete for sidewalk and reached the Fire Station.

In the next weeks we anticipate Lawhorn’s demo reaching 4th Street and their electrical work continuing and Bluegrass will continue placing granite curb, grading and sidewalk around the Fire Station and towards 4th and Main. They need to drop back and finish Speedway’s second Main Street entrance and some recently approved change order work. The attached photos show example work on the sidewalk, granite curb and electrical work in progress.

The weather seems to be cooperating and with your patience we hope to complete the improvements as soon as possible.

The weather has been good for Bluegrass Contracting, their subcontractor Lawhorn Electric, KU, and Atmos these last two weeks. Again we appreciate the patience and cooperation of Speedway, Community Trust Bank, WFL Management, Guerrant Real Estate, and other tenants around Church Street. The utility issue has been dealt with and Lawhorn is completing demo work at Community Trust Bank, then continuing towards the Fire Station. Bluegrass Contracting is placing the granite curb at 5th and Main and in front of Speedway.

In the next week we anticipate electrical work by Lawhorn and Bluegrass will continue placing granite curb, grading and sidewalk near 5th and Main.
