Phase 4 Concrete Paving Starting Today!
Through the past few weeks, you may have seen rebar taking shape for the concrete paving on Phase 4 of Hilltop Road. Today, the concrete paving operation is starting. We ask that you please plan for delays as we pave concrete. Due to the limited right-of-way, we are required to dump concrete from trucks stopped in the travel lane. Please add 20 or 30 minutes on to your daily commute this week. The traffic slowdown is only expected to last through this week.
As soon as we have this half of Phase 4 fully paved and concrete cured, we will be putting traffic onto the new concrete, similar to how we did in Phase 3. We understand that the current temporary driving lane can be rough at times. Please know that we spend time daily repairing the current road so that residential traffic can still get through.
Details on the Phase 3 & 4 work and traffic detours can be found below in the post dated 11/2/22 and titled "Phases 3 & 4 Starting Soon!" (CLICK HERE FOR POST)
We appreciate your continued cooperation and understanding as we work to complete Hilltop Road as quickly and safely as possible.
11/2/22 Update - Phases 3 & 4 Starting Soon!
We have created a form where you can provide contact information if you'd like so that we can contact you directly regarding closures and delays as it pertains to your property. A link to that form is below along with a QR Code that can also be scanned to fill out the form. Your contact information will remain confidential if you chose to provide it.
Hilltop Road from Old Alton Road up to FM 1830 will begin construction in the next few weeks! This area is split into two phases.
Phase 3: Hilltop Rd from Old Alton Rd to Macaway Rd
Phase 4: Hilltop Rd from Macaway Rd to FM 1830
Although utility work and tree clearing has been taking place in these areas for the last several weeks, the heavy construction will begin in Phase 3 after Thanksgiving. Phase 3 will be under construction solely for a couple of weeks, and then Phase 4 will also begin construction, in tandem with Phase 3. See below for a breakdown of several different construction related topics.
During construction, all residents with mailboxes along Hilltop Road will have a temporary mailbox located on Macaway Rd near the intersection of Hilltop Rd. This is being done at the request of the Argyle US Post Office for safety and consistency. The Spring Acres neighborhood mailboxes will remain in place throughout construction and will not be affected. When the time comes for your temporary mailbox to start being used, notice will be provided via your current mailbox. We ask that you please continually check your mail so that everyone is prepared for the start of the temporary mailboxes. Once construction is complete in your phase, all mailboxes will return to their location along the new Hilltop Road.
During Phase 3 of construction, traffic will be one-way Northbound only on Hilltop Road from Old Alton Rd to Macaway Rd. Two different detour options will be in place. See the image to the right. The blue arrows and yellow arrows are the two detours to get to the South end of the closure (Old Alton/Hilltop Rd). The yellow arrow route is FM 1830 to E Hickory Hill Rd, to Hilltop Rd. The blue arrow route is FM 1830 to Hickory Creek Rd, to Teasley Ln, to Old Alton Rd, to Hilltop Rd. This Phase 3 closure and detour will be in place from after Thanksgiving through March/April.
A few weeks into Phase 3 construction, Phase 4 will begin and work simultaneous with Phase 3. In Phase 4 (like Phase 3), traffic will be one-way Northbound only on Hilltop Road from Macaway Rd to FM 1830. While both Phases 3 & 4 are under construction, Hilltop Rd will be one-way Northbound from Old Alton Rd all the way to FM 1830. Two different detour options will be in place. See the image to the right. The purple arrows and green arrows are the two detours to get to the South end of the closure (Old Alton/Hilltop Rd). The purple arrow route is FM 1830 to E Hickory Hill Rd, to Hilltop Rd. The green arrow route is FM 1830 to Hickory Creek Rd, to Teasley Ln, to Old Alton Rd, to Hilltop Rd. This Phase 4 closure and detour will be in place from mid-December through June/July.
Once the one-way closures are in place, we ask that you please follow the detours and inform any visitors you may have to be aware of the construction, detours, and potential delays in place.
As always, we appreciate your understanding as we work to complete construction on Hilltop Road as quickly and safely as possible. Any questions or concerns may be directed to email@example.com.
