Street Department's 2016 Planned Paving Program

The Streets Department announces the 2016 planned paving and ADA curb replacement program for local roadways funded by the City’s Capital budget.  We use a conventional paving method which mills off the top asphalt surface, preps and repairs utility manhole covers and any roadway base areas, then applies a new asphalt top surface. This paving process occurs in three stages over a 3 to 5 week period. Work will begin in April and continue through November.
