Progress on the Rockingham Rd Reconstruction and Resurfacing project has continued to see delays as the result of underground gas line boring and underground utility system updates. 

The contractor will be returning next week to construct the sub-base and apply an initial patch to the section of Rockingham between Schmidt Rd and Hancock where storm sewer work is complete.  Additional re-surfacing work will be completed along the entire project stretch following completion of storm sewer improvements.

Work along the stretch will advance in a westerly direction from Schmidt Rd to Birchwood as underground utility work progresses.



Work on the Rockingham Rd Reconstruction and Resurfacing project has been delayed for completion of gas and electrical line work by the utility.

Portions of storm sewer construction are complete.

Staff anticipates storm sewer construction work will resume around Monday, July 24th, depending on status of utility work. Once construction resumes, work will move westerly from Schmidt Rd to Birchwood.  At this time, staff anticipates all storm sewer work in the north westbound curb lane will be complete in August.  Once complete, next project phases will begin.

The city will update further as work progresses and traffic control patterns change.


Reconstruction and resurfacing of Rockingham Rd between Birchwood Av and Schmidt Rd will begin Tuesday, May 30th.  Work will include storm sewer, curb and sidewalk improvements.

The first phase of construction consists of storm sewer construction, and will begin at the intersection of Rockingham and Schmidt Roads and move westerly to Birchwood. During this phase of construction, the north curb lane of Rockingham Rd will be closed.  Two-way traffic will be routed in available lanes south of the construction area.

Motorists are advised to pay attention to signs as work progresses.  Traffic delays are possible.

Additional phases will follow completion of storm sewer construction in the north curb lane.  Road construction is anticipated to be complete by late Fall 2017, depending on weather and subsurface conditions.
