Summer Paving is Underway

Updated July 23, 2014
NOTE: Paving work was rained out on Tuesday and Wednesday, July 22-23 because asphalt doesn't stick well in the rain. Work scheduled for the 22nd will be postponed until the 24th.

The city's summer paving work started on July 1st.  Summertime weather brings ideal paving conditions.  Paving is done on roads with severe cracks and potholes and on busy streets where the road surface is subjected to the daily pressure of thousands of vehicles. The process involves the application of a couple inches of new pavement to the existing street. This restores the structural strength of the roadway.

Read more about this year’s pavement maintenance on the city’s website:
