The area around Hamburg Pavilion and Hamburg Village is having its streets repaired, sealed and in some cases even re-built. That's over two million feet of private road in the shopping area around Sir Barton Way in east Lexington.
Each strip of pavement gets its needs addressed in different ways, said Peter Kramer, president of APM of Lexington, which is overseeing the project. For example, milling and paving will be done along the storefronts, roadways and other areas, while the remainder of the center's pavement will be sealed.
Kramer said much of the work will be done during evening hours when the center is closed.
It's the biggest project ever for APM, founded in 1982. APM specializes in rehabilitating and renovating existing parking lots. The job is expected to last through much of October, according to David Wright, facilities manager for the two shopping areas.
Wright estimated that some of the pavement dates back to 1997.
Kramer said that his company is "basically paving all the store front of what they call the 'power center' " — which includes Kohl's, At Home and Ross Dress for Less — "as well as the area around PetSmart, Marshall's and Best Buy."
The intersection at Vendor and Sir Barton will be reconstructed, Kramer said.
