Repaving on 17th Street

July 5, 2018

Repaving on 17th Street between Cliffe and Fitzgerald Avenue originally scheduled for July 3 – 5 has been rescheduled by the contractor to Monday, July 9 through to Thursday, July 12.

Work will be completed overnight between 6:00 pm to 6:00 am each day. Once paving starts, roadways will be subject to intermittent lane closures and single-lane alternating traffic during construction hours.

There will be noise generated by the crew and equipment, and any on-street parking will be restricted during construction. Please use caution and obey traffic personnel and posted traffic signs.

During repairs, the existing pavement surface will be ground up, removed, and replaced with new asphalt. This cost-effective method of road repair can be performed when the road surface is damaged but the sub-base is stable and underground utilities don’t yet need replacing or upgrading.

The project is part of the City’s long-range asset management planning, which prioritizes repairs based on a thorough condition assessment of roads throughout the city.
