The Lowry Redevelopment Authority will start a pavement recycling program at the former Buckley Annex in mid-March to early May.
There are about 24 acres of roads, parking lots, tennis courts and tarmac on the former Buckley Annex site. About 54,000 tons of the material will eventually be recycled on-site.
Pavement removal activities will begin in Area A, B and C on this map.
Area A is primarily old tennis courts south of First Avenue between Monaco Parkway and Niagara Street.
Area B is a portion of a former taxiway west of Monaco Parkway.
Area C is a former parking lot north of Bayaud Avenue and west of Quebec Street.
A small structure in Area D is also scheduled for demolition.
The pavement will be removed with a variety of equipment, including excavators, hydraulic pavement breakers and haul trucks. Materials will be taken to a stockpile in Area E for on-site recycling.
Hours of operation will be Mondays through Fridays, 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. and potentially some
Saturdays during the same hours. Contractor equipment will remain on site during the project. There will be minimal off-site trucking.
