Beginning Wednesday, July 26, the contractor will begin reconstruction of Bonita Boulevard by closing Bonita Boulevard from Dallas Drive to South Lawn Road and closing Dallas Drive from Bonita Boulevard to Orchard Drive. The intersection at Bonita Boulevard and Dallas Drive will be closed. In order for the contractor to begin pavement removal, a full road closure will be required. The road closure will be in effect for four to six weeks, depending on the weather.
For safety's sake, please stay away from the construction area. Heavy equipment will be moving back and forth on the closed street. It would be advisable to stay behind the sidewalk on the property side during the reconstruction work.
During the closure, alternate garbage pickup points will be required for residents who normally place automated collection carts within the closure area on Bonita Boulevard. Residents can place their collection carts on the open portion of Bonita Boulevard, South Lawn Road or Orchard Drive during this stage of the street closure. This should be done on the normal collection day for that particular street.
Yard waste collection carts can be placed curbside at the same location as the garbage collection carts for Monday pickup. Yard waste may also be taken to the transfer station in any type of container when the transfer station is open.
Also during the road closure, rural type mailboxes will be removed and temporarily relocated. The contractor will coordinate the location of the relocated mailboxes with the U.S. Postal Service. Normally, all mailboxes are relocated at one end of the road closure. Once reconstruction is completed, the mailboxes will be returned to their original location. Please do not park adjacent to the relocated mailboxes. The residents will be responsible for removing any decorative attachments to the mailboxes and relocating any landscape plantings within the right-of-way. The contractor will be responsible for removing and temporarily relocating the mailbox and post only.
