Hartwell Ave and Oxford Rd Improvements

Project Update: July 30, 2020 Final Update

Today the contractor was able to finish all of the sod on the project. Over the next two weeks the contractor will continue to water the sod. As the homeowner the contractor is recommending the following care for the sod:

  • Any additional watering you would like to do will help. 
  • Stay off the sod for a minimum of 14 days
  • The first mowing of the should be after 14 days. Set your mower on its highest setting (i.e. do not cut more than 1/3 the height of the sod).


Over the next couple of weeks the City will be completing a final walkthrough of the project noting any deficiencies the contractor will need to fix. The contractor will also start picking up the traffic control and complete a final project cleanup. Residents who typically pack overnight on the street, will need to begin purchasing overnight passes starting again in August (the construction parking permits will expire at the end of July).
