Road Prep Work on Cooper Pt Road

Starting tonight, Monday, July 24, the City's contractor will remove old plastic striping on Cooper Point Road—Auto Mall Drive, from Black Lake Boulevard to Evergreen Park Drive. Striping removal will be done as night work, from 8:00 pm—5:00 am.  The work will continue every evening next week (July 24 – July 27) until it is completed.  This will prepare the roadway for chip sealing later this summer. Chip sealing will  restore the existing pavement and extend the life of the street.

Motorists should expect lane restrictions and traffic delays during striping removal work.  Traffic control and flaggers will be in place, so please use caution when traveling through the area.
