2014 Microsurfacing Road Work

Beginning on Wednesday, May 28, 2014, City contractors will begin applying microsurfacing on Republic Avenue, State Street, College Avenue, Cloud Street, Bishop Street, Eighth Street and Broadway Boulevard.

The schedule for May 28 – May 31, is as follows:

May 28 Republic Avenue (between Cherokee Drive and  Broadway Boulevard)
 Republic Avenue (between Pershing Street and Ninth  Street)
 State Street (between Broadway Boulevard and  College Avenue)

May 29 College Avenue (between South Street and Bishop  Street)
 Cloud Street (between Broadway Boulevard and  Ninth Street)

May 30 Bishop Street (between College Avenue and Ninth  Street)
 Eighth Street (between Ash Street and Prescott  Avenue)

May 31 Broadway Boulevard (between Chicago Street and  Ninth Street)

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.

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.
