Crafts Avenue Work Commences

Crafts Avenue Work Commences

Lyme had a productive meeting with Interim City Manager, Paula Maville, and municipal staff on July 28, 2016 to coordinate the utility work on Crafts Avenue.

Northwoods installed a job site trailer on the River Park site at the end of Crafts Avenue and John Machia (May'she') will be on site starting August 1, 2016.  Pre-construction work will include marking the existing sewer line and water lines on Crafts Avenue, establishing a haul road for material from Route 10, stockpiling pipe, sand and gravel for the sewer work on the River Park site, and preserving top soil for re-use.

Crafts Avenue Preliminary Work Starting Next Week

Crafts Avenue Preliminary Work Starting Next Week

We hope to begin mobilization for the utility and street improvements on Crafts Avenue, starting Monday, July 25, 2016.  Initial work will include locating a job site trailer at the northern end of Crafts Avenue on River Park property for Northwoods Excavating.  This will be the site office for John Machia and Leet Ware Construction.  A request has been made to Liberty Utilities for temporary power.

Northwoods will also delineate the area for temporary residential parking to the east side of the extension of Crafts Avenue.  This was a good suggestion from neighbors at the meeting at our office on July 7 and we have consulted with abutters who agreed.

Updates from the Crafts Avenue Meeting

Thank you to those who attended our meeting last night; we had a great turnout with over 25 neighbors attending.  We discussed the upcoming Crafts Avenue improvements and utility work for the River Park project.

Lyme Properties introduced Leet Ware and Brian Newcity from Leet Ware Construction who will be overseeing the Crafts Avenue construction.  We also had Bryant Anderson, the engineer from VHB who designed the improvements, available to answer questions from individual owners about the impacts on their property.  We are hoping to kick off the work soon and estimate it will take 10-12 weeks to complete.

Dave's Recent Letter to our Route 10 Neighbors

Dave's Recent Letter to our Route 10 Neighbors

We won!  Thanks to your help and thoughtful comments to the Commissioner of the N.H. Department of Transportation, Lyme has succeeded in convincing the DOT to drop their insistence for a three lane Route 10 between the two entrances into River Park.  This has been a long and expensive process, but I feel strongly that the two lane option approved by the Lebanon Planning Board is the correct decision and one that allows the traffic impacts of River Park to be appropriately mitigated.

Pre-construction activity has started

Pre-construction activity has started

Pre-construction activity for the first phase of River Park is now underway.  For the past four years, Lyme Properties has mowed the pastures, eliminated trees that have blown down, and generally tried to maintain the property as any conscientious neighbor would do.  It has been gratifying to have abutters monitor the site for trespassers, and on two occasions this resulted in putting out unattended campfires left burning by careless campers.
