The 2023 paving project associated with the use of ARPA funds and the paving of residential roads is largely complete. The contractors replaced isolated curbs, ADA ramps, certain sections of sidewalk and have paved the following roads: Wren Rd., Martin Rd., Cardinal Rd., Teal Trail, Warbler Ct, Oriole Rd., Phasis Dr., Lafayette Blvd., portions of Finch Dr., South Orleans Ave., Hickory Ct., Cedar Ln., Oakwood Ct., Rosewood Ct., Dogwood Ct., Rosewood Dr., Beech Ln., Devonshire St., Cobblestone Dr., Somerset St., Tamarac Ln., a portion of Kensington Blvd., Garden Ct., a portion of Wallace Ave., Parker St., Vine St., and Lambert Dr.
The last portion of the project is the application of a rejuvenating agent, which is a material that is sprayed on the newly paved road and helps to prolong the life of the asphalt. The contractor plans to begin spraying the rejuvenating agent on Monday, June 12. During the process, roads must be clear of parked vehicles, which is why the area is marked “no parking”.
An informational flyer will be dropped off to residents who live along all of these roads.
The rejuvenating agent prolongs the life of the newly paved road. While the agent is being applied, intermittent delays should be expected. As part of the process, a small amount of sand is spread on the road, which will be swept up within the week. Please drive slowly if you drive over a freshly treated area. On the day of application, please refrain from using irrigation systems, washing vehicles, or anything else that might cause water to inadvertently wash off the freshly applied rejuvenating agent.
The rejuvenating agent can be washed off vehicles and driveways, and does not cause any permanent damage or staining. Material tracked onto driveways will weather off in three weeks or less.
Should rain occur, this work will be delayed to the following day.
The project is ahead of schedule and will be completed long before the contract completion date of October 2023.
As a reminder, Mayor Aspacher and Council previously allocated ARPA funds toward the paving of residential roads throughout the City. This is occurring over a 3-year period – 2022, 2023, and 2024.
