Contractor to resurface portion of Middle Avenue in June

Posted on May 31, 2021 at 5:19 pm by Clay Curtin

Middle Avenue will soon be resurfaced between Olive Street and San Mateo Drive. This project includes corrective measures to fix the paving performed in November 2020. Field samples show that the current pavement contains a high amount of air voids. Air voids that are either too great or too low can cause a significant reduction in pavement life. This may lead to continued pavement damage and pavement failure.

At its own expense, the contractor will install a new asphalt overlay and restripe the street. This work is planned for June 14-18, when Oak Knoll School students are on their summer break. Electronic message boards will notify motorists of exact construction dates. The work may include partial lane closures, as needed.
