Final Roadway Preparation Work

On Saturday, July 29, the City's contractor will complete final roadway preparation work on the following streets:

·       Harrison Avenue - from Division Street to West Bay Drive (upper roundabout)

·       Walnut Road - from Division Street to Ethel Street

·       14th Avenue - from Cooper Pt Road to Kaiser Road

This work consists of sealing the asphalt repair areas on each of the streets. This will prepare the roadways for chip sealing later this summer. Chip sealing will restore the existing pavement and extend the life of the street.

Potential Impacts

· Expect some lane restrictions and traffic delays during final roadway preparation work.   

· Flaggers will direct motorists and pedestrians through the construction areas. 

· Access to driveways may be temporarily disrupted during final roadway preparation work.
