Street closures set for this weekend

March 28, 2014 • Local News

Two sections of roadway will be closed this weekend as the city continues its slurry seal pavement maintenance program.

East Country Club Road [auth] from Garden Avenue east to the railroad tracks will close today.

East College Avenue from North Main Street east to Atkinson Avenue will close on Sunday.

Drivers should take alternate routes during the closures. Drivers should not drive on the wet asphalt-oil pavement.

“Your patience and cooperation is greatly appreciated,” said City Engineer Luis Najar.

The projects are part of a citywide pavement preservation operation that began March 19 and will continue through March 31. The city began its bi-annual slurry seal pavement maintenance that requires placing a mixture of asphalt, an oil emulsion, rock and sand on the street.

The process takes several hours to dry and requires one day for each section of roadway.

    When people are notified, via letter of the closing and the date, then the company doing the maintenance should show up. Businesses closed because of the notice and the crew did NOT show up nor was there a reason given. How many days will a business be expected to close while waiting on the street crew to show up? The city can do better than this.
