The paving season is underway. The Streets Department plans to resurface 60 miles between now and the fall. The paving season runs from the spring through late fall. 
 
The street improvement process involves two separate phases or four steps:
  • Preparation phase 
    • Step 1: Removal of the existing top asphalt surface (milling)
    • Step 2: Setting manholes covers and any roadway base areas
  • Paving phase 
    • Step 3: New asphalt applied; actual paving of the roadway
    • Step 4: Laying any line striping and traffic markings
The entire paving operation takes three-to-five weeks. But, this timeline may change depending upon weather conditions and area special events. Each phase happens  between 7am and 4pm, lasting one to two days per street.
  • Look for posted temporary “No Parking” signs to know when to move vehicles. This will prevent the towing of vehicles, as well as prevent delays in the project. 
  • If a vehicle is towed, residents should contact their local Police District to find it.
