The contractor is experiencing challenges pouring concrete as a result of the hot temperatures. The concrete cannot exceed 90 degrees in the truck.
If the concrete exceeds 90 degrees in temperature, it cannot be used per specifications and must be sent back to the plant and disposed of. As a result, the contractor will begin pouring concrete at 5am on Friday, August 5th. The other construction crews will continue to begin their work day at 7am.
Note: the concrete contractor may need to continue the early morning concrete pours, if the heat persists in creating challenges, throughout the duration of the project.
Please stay tuned for updates as the Michigan Ave project progresses.
The City of Saline staff will be providing a minimum of a weekly update and sometimes daily informational postings depending on what is taking place in the construction zone.
Remember to visit our local Saline businesses during and after this great project and look for the Pave It Forward logo and the fun promotions being provide by Saline Main Street and the Saline Area Chamber of Commerce.
