2016 Microsurfacing Road Work
The City of Salina’s 2016 Microsurfacing project continues. The schedule for Sept 2 – Sept 6 is as follows:
Prairie Lane, Crawford to Quail Hollow
Fairdale, Applewood to Brookwood
Fairdale, Glen to Edgehill
Claflin, Osborne to Ohio
Glendale, Albert to Cloud
The work will include applying the asphalt surface treatment and placing temporary pavement markings.
On arterial or commercial streets, 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.
Each local street will be closed to all traffic between from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on its scheduled day. The contractor will remind residents to move any vehicles needed during the closure to side streets. Any work not completed on the scheduled day, typically due to weather, will be rescheduled for another day where proper notice can be given to residents.
Microsurfacing is a method of pavement surface treatment which prolongs the serviceability of streets by creating a moisture-resistant barrier while increasing the rideability. This process has been successfully used in Salina for many years. Combined with joint and crack sealing, this surface treatment program extends the service life of pavement.
