Cove Boulevard Paving

Posted on August 18, 2017 at 1:34 PM by Julie Sutor

Summit Cove Loop Project crews are nearing completion for this summer’s work.

The paving of Cove Boulevard and its connection to Summit Cove Elementary School will take place Saturday and Monday. Barring any unforeseen weather delays, Cove Boulevard paving will be complete in time for the first day of school on Aug. 24. Some paving work at the trailhead and the tie-ins to adjoining side roads will continue after school starts.

Also on tap in the coming weeks are road striping, painting of bike-pedestrian lanes, revegetation and cleanup.

During paving operations on Cove Boulevard, traffic may be reduced to one lane only. Please remain alert for flaggers and workers when traveling through the work zone.

We appreciate everyone’s patience during construction activities, and we wish all the Summit Cove Elementary students a happy first day of school!

Concrete Work Begins

Posted on August 10, 2017 at 3:27 PM by Marsha Miller

This week, crews on the Summit Cove Loop Project began widening the roadway platform in front of Summit Cove Elementary School to accommodate the planned sidewalks and parent drop-off/pick-up areas. This widened roadway will also accommodate the pedestrian/bicycle lanes, which will improve the flow of traffic through this congested area.

Next week, concrete work will begin in front of the school.  These improvements will provide the necessary drainage and access to and from the Summit Cove Elementary School property.  Concrete trucks will be moving in and out of the area throughout the week, and we ask everyone in the neighborhood to exercise caution around the construction zone, and avoid the area if possible.

The trailhead parking across from the school remains closed. Please continue to use the upper parking lot in front of the Summit Cove Elementary School for trail access, and pay close attention to the flaggers, as there will only be one access to the parking lot available during the concrete work.

Your County staff and our contractor would again like to thank all of the residents and visitors in the neighborhood for your continued patience and understanding during this construction process and any associated traffic delays.

New pavement and shoulders

Posted on August 4, 2017 at 4:46 PM by Julie Sutor

This week, Summit Cove Loop Project crews paved Cove Boulevard and installed new shoulders from the west end of Summit Cove Elementary School to Whispering Pines Ranch Road. Crews also milled the old asphalt on Cove Boulevard from the school out to Grey Fox Lane.

Next week, crews will continue working to stabilize the road's subgrade on the eastern portion of the project. Flaggers will continue to direct vehicle traffic through one lane.
