Country Club Road Improvements

UPDATES:

Oct. 15, 2021:
Verona Ave. has been opened and will return to normal traffic patterns. Please pay attention to the traffic light at Country Club Road and Verona Ave.
The intersection of Country Club Road and Claremont Ave. will be closed on Monday, Oct. 18, 2021. Traffic will be detoured to Wildwood Ave.  
As soon as NLS clears Claremont Ave., asphalt will be laid from Claremont Ave. to S. Devon Ave. on Country Club Road.
Please drive carefully.

Oct. 7, 2021:

Starting Friday morning NLS will be paving Country Club from North Hills Blvd. to around Glenora Ave. Country Club Road will be reduced to one lane starting at 7 a.m. and lasting for most of the day. If at all possible, save yourself some frustration and avoid the area while crews work to smooth and fill the pot holes.

Additionally, the new 8" main on the first half of the project starting from North Hills Blvd. has been installed and is currently being tested until at least Monday afternoon. There will be eleven sample points running water as part of the testing. The water will be routed as best as the contractors can to optimize drainage.

Above is a current map of the construction along Country Club Road. The Work Area between Delmont Ave. & S. Fairway Ave. is pressure testing on the water line; the Work Area between Verona Cir. & S. Claremont Ave. is installing the new water line. The contractor (NLS) told us that the part of Country Club Road at the intersection of Devon Ave. is gravel, and motorists need to be careful driving in this area. Parents of Sherwood Elementary students need to continue to use the route posted on Sept. 29 below.

The NLS construction crew working for Central Arkansas Water to replace the water main on Country Club Road is approaching the Verona Ave. intersection. The construction will severely impact the traffic pattern on Verona Ave. As we communicated a couple of weeks ago, for parents who drop off their students in front of the school, the one-way signs on Verona Ave. will be covered, thus making Verona Ave. a TWO-WAY street. A barricade will be placed at 208 Verona Ave. If you see this barricade, turn around. The barricade means that the road is closed to thru traffic and that Country Club Road is blocked. 

Parents who usually arrive at the school via Wildwood Ave. should detour south to Coulter Road and then turn north onto Verona Ave. This will minimize stopped traffic on Wildwood Ave.


NLS will work as fast and as safely as possible to clear the intersection, but the speed depends on weather and ground conditions.

The map below shows work areas and detours on Country Club Road from Delmont Ave. to S. Fairway Ave. where Central Arkansas Water is testing the pressure of the new line and between Devon Ave. and Verona Ave. where the contractor is laying a new line.

Sherwood_Elementary_School_Detour


Sherwood Elementary parents that drop students off in the morning and also pick-up their students after school: Due to the construction on Country Club Road, the following changes need to be made during the time Devon Ave. (behind the school) and Verona Ave. (in front of the school) are affected. 

1.    Starting this afternoon, after school, the one-way signs on Devon Ave. will be covered, making Devon Ave. a two-way street. Parents signing in or out Pre-K students will have to utilize the small parking area behind the school, and exit the parking area returning to WILDWOOD AVE. This will continue until the work crew clears the intersection of Devon Ave. and Country Club Road.

2.    When the crew approaches Verona Ave., parents signing in or out Pre-K students will have returned to their normal traffic routine.

3.    For parents that drop off their students in front of the school, one-way signs on Verona Ave. will be covered, thus making Verona a two-way street. After dropping off your student, exit the school via Wildwood Ave. Parents that normally arrive at school via Wildwood Ave. are asked to detour SOUTH to Coulter Road, then turn NORTH onto Verona Ave., thus minimizing STOPPED traffic on Wildwood Ave.


Aug. 26, 2021:

An updated map for the Country Club Road project details the ongoing work area between S. Fairway Ave. and Beverly Ave. and the detour routes between Country Club Road and Wildwood Ave. Please note that no thru traffic is allowed on N. Fairway Ave. and N. Beverly Ave. Additionally, Verona Ave. (not pictured) will continue to be a one-way road during Sherwood Elementary drop-off and pick-up times, which are 7-7:45 a.m. and 2:15-3 p.m.
