The cobblestones in New Town have been removed, but the project isn’t over yet.

As of Thursday, all demolition at the intersection of Settlers Market and Casey boulevards had been completed. Last week, contractors put down base stone in the work area.

The next steps: finishing fine grading and doing a “proof roll,” where workers use a roller to see if the roadway is adequately compacted, said Jason Purse, assistant county administrator.

If the proof roll shows the base is compact enough, the intersection will be ready for paving. Work this week was slightly delayed because the base stone was too frozen and wet to work with Tuesday.

The weather needs to cooperate, but hopefully that occurs before the rain comes back on Friday,” Purse said.

The cobblestones have been the subject of complaints from the residents of townhomes on the surrounding streets since they were first placed there by Settlers Market’s original developers.

Supervisor Jim Icenhour, of the Jamestown District, heard the complaints often while canvassing for his current seat on the James City County Board of Supervisors.

To celebrate the removal, Icenhour gave each of his fellow supervisors a cobblestone at their regular monthly board meeting Tuesday.

The cost of the project has been estimated at just under $50,000.

The roadway around the intersection remains  closed.
