Sprague Road Phase Two Update

PROJECT UPDATE FROM THE COUNTY: Work associated with the Sprague Road is currently progressing at a good pace with both roadway paving and sidewalk installation ongoing at the same time. Currently sidewalk and driveway installations are nearly complete between Abbey Road and West 130th Street.  Mainline paving of the eastbound curb lane of Sprague Road will be taking place next week.  Once that paving is complete, the installation of sidewalk on the north side of Sprague Road between East Linden Drive and York Road will begin. 

Beyond the immediate future, landscaping of the mainline Sprague Road areas is scheduled to begin in September and should be completed around November 1st. Besides pavement, sidewalk, and landscaping, additional work to be completed involves the installation of the new Abbey Road/Sprague Road intersection, completion of the sanitary pump station, and some miscellaneous work associated with the bridge over Baldwin Creek near Abbey Road.

We are anticipating that this project will reach substantial completion and be back open to normal two-way traffic by the currently scheduled completion date of December 13, 2023.  As always, project progress will be contingent upon us receiving at least normal weather conditions as we progress through late summer and into the fall season. Please note that there will likely be some miscellaneous items of work that will have to be completed next spring including landscaping and concrete/asphalt touch-ups.  It is our intent to maintain two-way traffic during that final stage of the project.

We understand that this challenging project has tested the patience of all involved especially the residents who front directly onto Sprague Road and surrounding areas as well. The project was initially scheduled to be competed in September of this year, however, COVID related delays involving material procurement (especially new watermain) back in 2021 delayed the start of  our work, with the exception of some tree clearing performed in October, by around 3 months from late August until November of 2021.

We appreciate the understanding of all the nearby residents and motorists who depend on this important throughfare daily.  To that end, this office will extend every effort to bring this substantial infrastructure improvement to a successful completion within the quickest possible timeframe.
