Concrete Repair and Street Resurfacing FY15-16

The 2016 Concrete Repair and Pavement Resurfacing Project consists of upgrading pedestrian curb ramps to current Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards and the application of slurry seal to various roadways. Prior to the application of slurry seal, streets will be repaired and crack filled as necessary. All residences will be notified of the slurry seal application at least 1 week prior to the work with electronic message boards placed at the entrance to each neighborhood. A minimum of 72 hours prior to any road closures No-Parking barricades will be placed on the street and door hangers will be hung on the front door of each residence.  On the day that your street is scheduled for closure, please move any vehicle that will be needed to adjacent streets that are not scheduled for closure on the same day. Road closures will be effective between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. For more information about this project, contact Ryan Chance at or call 355-8346.
