2016 Chip Seal Road Work to Begin
Beginning on Monday, July 11th, City contractors will begin chip sealing on various streets within the city limits. The schedule for July 11 – 15 is as follows:
Airport Road – inside Salina city limits
Clay Ridge Court
Scanlan Avenue – north of Tony’s Road
3rd Street – Pacific Avenue to Euclid Avenue
Diamond Drive – in front of Motel 6 and IHOP
Old 40 Highway – inside Salina city limits
Old 40 Highway Court
Pacific Avenue – Kenny’s Autos to Ohio Street
Dewey Street – west of Bromac Avenue
Lakewood Park Drive and Parking Lots
The work will include applying the asphalt surface treatment and placing temporary pavement markings.
The contractor will begin setting traffic control at 7 am. Temporary traffic control and flaggers will be present to direct vehicles through the work zones and maintain traffic flow; traffic will be reduced to single lanes in both directions during paving. Residences and businesses will be notified if access to driveways will be restricted while work is performed. On-street parking in work zones will be prohibited. Any vehicles or equipment left on the street the day work is scheduled may be towed at the owners expense.
Chip Sealing is a method of pavement surface treatment which prolongs the serviceability of streets by sealing the surface. Combined with joint and crack sealing, this surface treatment program extends the service life of pavement.
