Road maintenance in residential areas can be difficult, but it is necessary to maintain our pavements. Our crews have been busy this spring doing prep work such as crack sealing on many of the residential roads in White City. Beginning 5/22/17 and lasting approximately two weeks our contractor Blackline Inc. will be applying slurry seals from curb to curb on various roadways.
The process involves closing the street, applying a mixture of emulsified asphalt and aggregate, letting the surface cure and reopening the road to traffic. Closure times are estimated at 3-4 hours but can vary and increase due to changing weather conditions. Closure includes no cars, no shoes, no water, no wheels (such as skateboards or bikes).
Affected streets will be signed ahead of time to allow vehicles to be moved and parked on nearby streets. A planned approach has been developed to not do too many streets in one particular area on the same day to allow nearby parking.
Local residents are asked to be on the lookout for the advanced 'no parking' signs. Please move your vehicle to an appropriate area to avoid it being towed. Also, local residents should park on an appropriate side street if they need to run errands or go to work on the day of application as your driveway will be blocked while the product cures. Motorists should obey all traffic control personnel and drive slowly around construction areas. During this two week period the slurry seal activity will primarily fall within the area from Division to Atlantic and Hwy 140 to Ave G.
This work moves quickly so be on the lookout for crews in your area.
