Why are manhole covers round? A manhole cover is round because it won’t fall through the opening on which it sits, it can simply be rolled to reach a destination much faster, while applying relatively little effort. Courtesywww.scienceabc.com Traffic control will be set up daily in several locations along the project route and residents are urged to use caution when driving through and walking near these work zones. The work is scheduled to begin at 8 am and end by 5 p.m. each day. The concrete being used is a high strength mix and will require a cure time, residents are urged to avoid driving over these manholes for the first few days after they are poured. This work will begin on Aspen Drive at Range Road and continue along Aspen Drive, Sumac Lane and Maple Drive before finishing back at Aspen Drive. Beginning Monday, July 1, crews will be adjusting manholes in the Ponderosa Estates area. Since there a dozens of manhole adjustments in this sub-division, construction is scheduled to go through July 31.

Second seed Nadal will face a first-time major finalist for the third successive year in his meeting with Medvedev at Flushing Meadows, having beaten Kevin Anderson in New York in 2017 and Dominic Thiem at the French Open a year later.Not since the 2016 U.S. Open has a grand slam been won by somebody other than Nadal, Novak Djokovic or Roger Federer — Stan Wawrinka emerging victorious in the final major of that season after Andy Murray prevailed at Wimbledon.Medvedev, who is on an 12-match winning streak since losing to Nadal in the Rogers Cup final, will attempt to break that run and deny the Spaniard a 19th major.The era of Nadal, Djokovic, Federer and to a lesser extent Murray, who is attempting to make a comeback following hip surgery, is regarded by many as the best in the history of tennis.WOW: @usopen | @RafaelNadal | #USOpen pic.twitter.com/vhREbg5Qt8— ATP Tour (@ATP_Tour) September 7, 2019However, Nadal rejected the notion that he needs to win this weekend to keep their run alive, as he has already accepted a new generation is going to take over.”We don’t need to hold this era anymore,” Nadal told a media conference. “We have been here for 15 years almost.”At some point, these days, (it’s) going to happen sooner than later that this era is going to end. It’s arriving to the end. I am 33. Novak is 32. Roger is 38. Andy is 32, too.”The clock is not stopping. That’s part of the cycle of life.”I’m not much worried about this because in tennis there are always going to be great champions.” Rafael Nadal will not be motivated by the thought of continuing the dominance of the ‘big four’ when he faces Daniil Medvedev in the U.S. Open final, as he knows their era is reaching its twilight.Nadal — 18-time grand slam champion — defeated Matteo Berrettini 7-6 (8-6), 6-4, 6-1 in New York on Friday to progress to his 27th grand slam final. See you on Sunday, @RafaelNadalHe defeats Matteo Berrettini 7-6(6), 6-4, 6-1. | #USOpen pic.twitter.com/D17o28wUdt— ATP Tour (@ATP_Tour) September 7, 2019A win for Nadal would see him move one behind Federer’s record tally of 20 slams, with Djokovic four back at 16.Asked if ending up with the record would be important to him, Nadal replied: “Yes. But I always say the same: we still playing. Here we are. When I arrived here, my goal was to produce a chance to compete for the big thing again. Here I am.”I give myself another chance, as I did in Wimbledon, as I did in Australia, as I did in Roland Garros. That’s the personal satisfaction. That’s the personal happiness.”You win, you lose. That’s part of all the sport. Of course, I would love to be the one who achieve the most grand slams, but I still sleep very well without being the one who has the most grand slams.”I am happy about my career. I am very happy about what I’m doing. I’m going to keep working hard to try to produce chances. Sunday is one. It’s just one more chance, that’s all.”I would love to be the one to have more, yes, but you cannot be all day frustrated or all day thinking about what your neighbor has better than you. You have to be happy with yourself. “If you are the one to achieve more, fantastic. If not, at least I give my best during my career.”
