- Cedar Street Upgrade Project
The pavement reclaiming process for Cedar, Pine, Linden and Highland streets will begin on April 23, 2019. The pavement will be removed and any remaining material will be graded and then compacted with water to enable safe travel. There will be signs and flaggers in place to help you navigate the job site. This shouldn't last more than two days.
Following this phase of the project, the roads will be left unpaved so that the utility companies will be able to make any necessary repairs to their systems, if needed.
The next phase of the project will be application of a base layer of asphalt. We expect this phase of the project will be completed by the fall, possibly sooner. The final phase of the project will be application of the top layer of asphalt in the spring of 2020. Thank you for your patience as we work to improve our roads!
If you have any questions or concerns please call:
Public Works Director, Kevin Duval at 603-286-4721.
