Road and Bridge Report: District 1 (July 2013 pt.1)

Print

Now that the rain has subsided, it's time to get back to work!

Believe it or not, the rain is actually very beneficial to road construction. Despite not being able to oil and chip in the rain, the precipitation helps to harden the base in areas that have been primed, sort of a homemade concrete. The harder the base, the more steadfast the road will be afte the oil and chip process is completed.

This week, crews will be priming the area of 201th Street and Cross Road, as well as 210th and Townley Road. Crews will then begin priming at Cross and 240th Street, heading north.

All areas will be primed and go through the oil and chip process this week.

Thank you for your patience and please pay attention to road signs and crews working in the areas.
