Construction of the Spring Paving Project is anticipated to begin on Friday, May 31. The street slated for repaving is the following:
- Pearl Street from Erie Street to Church Street
The work will include replacement of the asphalt wearing surface (full depth from Erie St to Huron St), curb and gutter repairs, minor sidewalk repairs, and other minor improvements.
During construction, the streets will remain open to local traffic. Minor traffic disruptions will occur on the days that the old asphalt is removed and on the days when new asphalt is being installed. If concrete curb & gutter is being replaced at a driveway approach, the owner will be notified by the contractor or City Representative in advance.
All major work is to be completed by June 28, 2019 and final restoration is to be completed by July 3, 2019.
