Oct 9, 2015: Brick Pavers Delivered: Installation to Start Week of October 12 Clay brick pavers were delivered to Madison Center this week and will be installed soon. Visitors to downtown Madison this past week may have noticed the pallets of bricks being delivered. The contractor will begin laying the clay brick pavers, which are currently stationed on pallets at the east end of Main Street. The bricks will be installed starting at the east end of north side of Main Street at the intersection of Wall Street and Boston Post Road in front of the Post Office. Installation will move west on the north side of the street. Over the past few weeks the contractor has removed old concrete curbing and sidewalks on the north side of Main Street. The contractor then trenched for electrical and irrigation conduits, placed the bases for the lights and installed the underground bases for the trees. The trench was then filled with a special mixture that is engineered for urban plantings. The clay brick pavers will be installed in a herringbone pattern. A sample of how the completed design will look is installed in front of Khaki and Black at 762 Boston Post Road on the south side of Main Street. Once the brick pavers are installed on the north side of Main Street the major elements of construction will be complete, leaving installation of signage, light polls, lights, tree grates, and street furniture. “While there has been limited parking disruption, I am pleased to see how quickly construction has progressed. Over the next couple of weeks we will get a glimpse of the major transformation that this project will bring to our entire town center,” said Ryan Duques, EDC Chair. Parking space reduction continues to be a concern and has been closely watched by the EDC and Chamber of Commerce as approximately 30% of the spaces are blocked on the north side of Main Street. Also, the leased municipal parking area behind the movie theater was partially closed this week as Davis Reality does repairs to their septic system. That parking area is expected to reopen the week of October 19. Additionally, the parking area behind the “2000 Building” and Café Allegre is expected to be closed on October 12 and 13th as the contractor installs necessary reinforcements under the driveway. Parking on the south side of Main Street and the municipal lot behind the south side of Main Street have been unaffected. Business owners, residents and visitors are reminded to adhere to all posted parking restrictions. Madison’s main street, the west side of Wall Street and the parking area immediately behind RJ Julia’s and People’s Bank on the south side of main street have a two hour parking limit Monday – Friday and as posted. Untimed parking is available in the parking area just to the east of the Stop and Shop lot.
