5th Avenue Construction Update

Phase II of the 5th Ave NW reconstruction has been suspended for winter. The roadway opened to residents October 21st  so they could all get in their garages prior to the weather. Permanent signage will be placed the week of Oct. 26 and the roadway will open to the public at that time. A temporary material consisting of a blend of aggregate and crushed asphalt has been placed and compacted on sidewalks that have not yet been completed so once things freeze solid homeowners will be able to maintain and clear snow. With 5th Ave NW not being a designated truck route, per Section 14-12-29 of the VCMC, the maximum axle load would should be 12,000 lbs. As long as we abide by that we should not have any other concerns of any travel restrictions on that road. The final construction work will be completed late spring/early summer in 2021. If anyone has questions or concerns please contact KLJ at 701-845-4980.
