Weekly Construction Update
Each week during the construction season, we’ll be updating this page with information about the progress on our construction projects. Offseason updates (November-March) will be less frequent due to less activity.
New Milavec Lake Circulators
4/8/2020 - The installation of three new SolarBee® Lake Circulators at Lake Milavec is scheduled for mid-April. The three new aerators are scheduled to be installed starting at 8 am on April 14 and work may continue into April 15. The boat ramp will be used to access the lake. Trail usage may be impacted for short periods of time to accommodate the movement of equipment. These circulators are designed to solve a variety of water quality problems in lakes and raw water reservoirs. Active lake circulation can prevent and control harmful cyanobacteria (a.k.a. blue-green algae) blooms, reduce odor and invasive aquatic weeds. Dive into the benefits of these new circulators and view the staging area and position areas on the lake.

Road Open - Bobcat Street
Bobcat Street work was completed December 27. The road is open in both directions.
Excavation work has resulted in the closure of Bobcat Street between Bella Rosa Parkway and Mustang Drive. Expect the road closure during working hours, daylight to dusk. The road is plated with a partial opening overnight. Detours are in place on Tripple Crown Drive. Please see this map for detours and traffic plans.
Pavement Management System
5/29/19 - Did you know the Town of Frederick maintains more than 96 miles of public streets? To manage this system, the Town Engineering Department and Public Works use a Pavement Management System to assist in evaluating the pavement condition, serviceable life and maintenance strategies for Town-owned roads and alleyways.
