Subject:  Time to put your mailboxes back in              

Now that most of the roadway work is done, we are asking you to install your mailboxes.   We still have some finishing work around driveways and along Van Lanen Road, but we would like to take down the temporary mailbox banks by Tuesday, November 16th

Mailboxes should be installed 41” to 45” above the roadway surface to the bottom of the mailbox and 6” to 8” back from the curb face or edge of shoulder (on Van Lanen Road the shoulder is 1’ from the edge of pavement).   You can also go to the USPS web site   www.usps.com/manage/mailboxes.htm      to get more information on the installation of your mail box. 

Again, please have your mailboxes installed by November 16th as we will be taking the temporary mailbox banks down and the Postal Service will begin delivering the mail to your normal mailbox

October 14, 2021

The schedule for asphalt paving has been pushed back to next week (week of October 18th). 

Landscaping will continue once topsoil is dry enough to work.  

Mailboxes can be installed after Friday, October 15.  Please see the Post Office web site  www.usps.com/manage/mailboxes.htm   on the placement of the mailboxes.  Mailboxes should go on the same side of the street as the original location.    For those on Van Lanen Road there still needs to be a one-foot gravel shoulder installed along side the pavement.  When placing your mailbox please account for the one-foot shoulder or you can wait to install your mailbox after the shoulder is placed

October 11, 2021

The contractor will be paving the final lift of asphalt starting Monday.  Those that had their concrete driveways poured recently will have to remain closed until Monday morning.  You can then move your vehicle in your driveway before the paving begins.  Any remaining asphalt driveways on Bay Settlement Road or Van Lanen Road will be done this week. 

Landscaping continues this week and depending on weather should be done by the end of the week.

Pavement marking is also scheduled for the end of the week.

Subject: Reconstruction of Bay Settlement Road (Church Road to Van Lanen Road)

Dear Property Owner:

Over the past 2 weeks you have all seen the curb being poured; the contractor is now starting the final phase of this project.  During this final phase it will be very important to get cars off the road wherever possible.

Starting on:

Thursday, September 16

  • The contractor will be putting in gravel along driveways on the west side of the road for people with asphalt driveways. This will allow those residents to begin parking in their driveways.  Asphalt will come later.
  • Fine grading for asphalt paving on Bay Settlement Rd will begin on the entire length of roadway.

Friday, September 17

  • Bay Settlement Court will be prepped for new asphalt.
  • Concrete aprons for driveways on the west side will start to be poured.  Completed next week. Stay off your driveway for 5+ days until cured. Please work with your neighbors to find alternatives to street parking.

Friday – Friday, September 17-24.

  • Asphalt paving crews start: No daytime parking on Bay Settlement from 7:00am-6:00pm.  Other than newly poured concrete driveways all residents will be able to park in their driveways.
  • A car parked on the street during the day when the crews are paving may have to be towed.

Next Week

  • Landscaping back of curb will continue.

* Concrete driveways on the east side of the road will be paved after the asphalt paving is complete. *

Thank you for your patience and cooperation as we complete this project.

Subject: Update on Reconstruction of Bay Settlement Road (Church Road to Van Lanen Road)

Curb and gutter on the east side of Bay Settlement Road is essentially complete; as previously noted access for private property owners will still be restricted until the concrete has cured for 7-days.

In an effort to make up for lost time due to the rain, the curbing contractor is marking curb locations on the west side of the road with the intent to pour on Saturday, September 11. The curbing should be completed on Monday, September 13. This again will restrict access for vehicles for a 7-day period.

Additional updates will be provided next week.

In the meantime, if you have questions, you can contact me at (920) 593-6860 or email at [email protected].

Sincerely,

-Scott Brosteau, Town Engineer

Subject: Reconstruction of Bay Settlement Road (Church Road to Van Lanen Road)

After much anticipation, the curb and gutter contractor is moving in this week and should be pouring curb and gutter on Friday of this week according to the prime contractor. The curb and gutter and other concrete work will cause some inconveniences. When the curb and gutter is being poured you will not be able to get into your driveway for 7 days. You can park your vehicles parallel to the curb and gutter in front of your residence. The contractor will be notifying you 24 hours in advance so you can get your vehicles out.

After the curb and gutter is poured, the contractor will start on concrete driveway aprons for those that had concrete driveways into the right of way. Again, once the concrete apron is poured there will be a 7-day period when you will not be able to drive on the concrete. Those residents that had asphalt, the aprons will be replaced with asphalt.

Around September 9th or 10th Peter’s will be back in to begin leveling off the area behind the curb and gutter and getting it ready for landscaping. The following week (week of September 13) Northeast Asphalt is scheduled to grade the roadway and place the first layer of asphalt by the end of that week. They will also be paving the asphalt driveways.

Once the first layer of asphalt is down, the landscapers will come in and complete the landscaping for the entire project. This will be followed by the final asphalt layer and then the pavement marking. This should all be completed by October 1 if the weather cooperates.

In the meantime, if you have questions, you can contact me at (920) 593-6860 or email at [email protected].

Week of August 16

Bay Settlement Road – WPS will finish up the work on relocating the gas main on the east side of the roadway early this week. 

Peters will be moving back in on Wednesday to finish the storm sewer and clean up the roadway some for curb and gutter. 

The curb and gutter contractor is tentatively scheduled for the week of August 23.  They will come in and complete all the curb and gutter for the project.   It should be noted that when curb and gutter does start you will not be able to cross the curb and gutter for a period of 7 days. Vehicles will have to be parked in the roadway parallel to the curb and gutter.  The contractor will let you know the day prior to pouring the curb and gutter that you will need to have your vehicles out (and trailers if needed) by the next morning.  Once the curing period is over the contractor will ramp the gravel over the curb so you can get back into your driveway.  If we are also pouring concrete driveways you will also have a 7-day period when you cannot use your driveway when that is poured.  We will notify you when this is to occur like the curb and gutter.       

The contractor will be watering the roadway periodically to reduce the dust.  Reducing the speed traveled on the roadway will help to keep the dust down also.  

Van Lanen Road – The contractor has completed the first layer of asphalt.   The second layer will be placed with asphalt work on Bay Settlement Road. 

As always if you have any questions or issues you can contact me, Scott Brosteau, Mead & Hunt, town engineer at (920)593-6860.

Bay Settlement Road and Van Lanen Road Reconstruction
Weekly Updated
Week of April 19
We have had one week of construction and we have had a few hiccups, but I think we have most
resolved and hopefully things should go a little smoother this week.
We made a change to the storm sewer location to help get traffic and school buses past the construction
area which required us to take out the mailboxes sooner then we had anticipated.
This week the contractor will continue rock trenching from about 3377 Bay Settlement Road heading
south and should get to about the old Town Hall site by the end of the week. Another crew will be
alternating between installing sanitary and water laterals and storm sewer from the north end working
south. Finally, by the end of the week the contractor is hoping to start drilling and blasting for the storm
water pond on the south end at the corner of Bay Settlement Road and Bay Settlement Court.
With two to three crews working on the road, it may appear that you will not be able to get past the work
area or you may feel trapped between them. If you need to get through where they are working, pull up in
the vicinity of the crew and they will move to let you through. Be aware that they may need to move
things for you to get through so it may take a minute or two, but they will let you through or come and talk
to you if there is a longer delay. We are also working with the school buses and garbage collection to get
them through.
If you have any questions please contact Scott Brosteau, Mead & Hunt, town engineer at (920)593-6860

Bay Settlement Road and Van Lanen Road Reconstruction
Weekly Updated
Week of April 12
The project is starting this week with the contractor moving in and setting up traffic control, installing erosion control and starting the rock excavation on Bay Settlement Road.
The contractor will be moving in the rock trencher, assembling it and starting on the north end trenching and slowly working south for the next 2 to 3 weeks. Falcon Drilling and Blasting will also be moving in this week. They will start on the north end drilling holes for the sewer and water laterals. The laterals will be drilled and then the rock either picked or pulled with a backhoe, no blasting will be done for the sewer and water laterals.
Mailboxes and mail service will not change until after the storm sewer is in. The road will be closed to through traffic and there will be times when you will not be able to get past the area the contractor is work at during the day. The contractor will try and provide one lane past the work area after hours.
If you have any questions please contact Scott Brosteau, Mead & Hunt, town engineer at (920)593-6860
