On Tuesday through Friday, May 2nd through 5th
, Circle C Paving &
Construction of Goddard, Kansas will seal cracks on the following
streets, weather permitting.
The work will take place generally between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5
p.m. Access to properties within work zones will be maintained at all
times. “Road Work Ahead” signs will be placed in advance of work
zones, and temporary single-lane closures are to be expected. Motorists
are asked to proceed with caution when approaching work zones for the
safety of the crews performing the work.
The annual crack and joint sealing program is an important and cost effective preventive maintenance component of the City of Salina’s
annual street repair program. Crack sealing the pavement helps prevent
water from penetrating into the pavement structure or sub-base material
and aids in reducing a number of pavement problems which include:
crack spreading; formation of voids under pavement; swelling and
shrinking of sub-base materials; freeze-thaw action; alligator cracking;
potholing; and complete failure. Because of its importance and cost effectiveness, the Department of Public Works strives to seal each
asphalt street in Salina no less often than every seven years.
This $491,000 project is part of the City's $5.3 million 2023 street
