Litchfield Park is gearing up for a $500,000 project to replace the existing pavement on 4,550 feet of Litchfield Road between Wigwam Boulevard and Camelback Road.

City Engineer Woody Scoutten said via email Oct. 9 that bid award recommendations will be presented to the City Council during its regular meeting scheduled for Wednesday, Nov. 18 and if approved, work could begin the first week of December.

Construction is expected to take about 60 days.

“Most of the paving work will be done within a few weeks, with the permanent striping done near the end of the 60-day period,” Mr. Scoutten said.

The city will accept bids for the project through 2 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 5. Companies wishing to submit bids must attend a virtual pre-bid meeting scheduled for 2 p.m. Monday, Oct. 26.

The project will include removing existing asphalt concrete pavement and replacing it with rubberized asphalt concrete.

According to contract documents, the contractor will be required to notify property owners and residents that have rear yards fronting the roadway of its construction schedule two weeks in advance of the start date. A reminder will be issued between 24 and 48 hours before work begins.
