Pavement and sidewalk work may make driveways temporarily unavailable as the new surface is prepared and cures. Residents are asked to please be patient as we work to improve infrastructure conditions in your neighborhood. In general, driveway access should not be limited for more than two weeks at one time.
The scope work varies by block but includes the following types of work:
- Patch Mill / Overlay: Repave the asphalt roadway from curb to curb and repair damaged sidewalks;
- Patch Concrete: Remove damaged portions of the concrete roadway and replace it with new smooth concrete pavement;
- Incidental Road Repairs: Remove damaged portions of the asphalt roadway and replace it with new smooth pavement; and
- Non-Paving Incidentals: Repair damaged sidewalks, driveway aprons and curbs within the public right-of-way.
