2017 Spring Projects

Posted on Feb 16, 2017

It looks like spring may come early to Mooresville if this winter season continues this weather trend.  In the event this is true that will allow many projects to begin earlier than expected.  The biggest project we have for this year is our paving.  The State of Indiana awarded our town almost $1,000,000. for road resurfacing.  By doing a review of the condition of each street in town individually we have compiled a list of roads and alleys that are in the most need of resurfacing.  The streets listed below are to be milled and resurfaced this spring and summer.

E & B paving was awarded this contract however; any questions or concerns should be directed to the Public Works office.

If you would like to see an example of the quality of work E & B is capable of, take a drive to Monrovia on State Road 42.  That is an E & B resurfacing project and I found it to be quite impressive.

Other projects on our list will include some stormwater work in the Edgewood-Northfield area.  We will be cleaning ditches and installing drainage to control flooding issues that have plagued this area for many years.  Banning Engineering has been hired to survey this area.  They will be easily identified by their trucks and shirts and should have photo ID’s if requested.

We will continue to improve many sidewalks around town and bring them up to code with the Americans with Disabilities Act.  We try to focus on the areas that are in the most need of total replacement as a higher priority.

We are going in a different direction with our mosquito control program.  In efforts to comply with EPA regulations, we will concentrate on attacking the larva instead of the adult.  We are concentrating our efforts on using a larvacide instead of the traditional aerial spraying.  Keep in mind spraying is only recommended if any known mosquito transmitted virus is detected in the area.  This means we will place small tablets in areas that the larva lives and hatch with intent to destroy the breeding ground.  If there is a discovery of a virus in the area, we will make every effort to control the mosquito population.

As always there will be various projects around town with temporary lane closures from time to time.  All efforts will be made to safely control traffic and keep things moving.
