Work will abound on streets


Work on Pershing Boulevard also will wrap up this month.

Garfield Street over Turtle Creek will be shut down for one or two weeks within the next couple of weeks for improvements.

The Prospect Avenue resurfacing project should be complete by the end of August.

The 1700 block of North Fifth Street will be resurfaced and South 19th Street from Lincoln Way to 27th Avenue South will be fully reconstructed this summer.

In July and August, crews will complete street reclamation on several streets in the area of 19th Avenue North and North 10th Street. Residents will see improvements on 16th Avenue North from Seventh Street to 10th Street; 19th Avenue North from Seventh Street to 10th Street; the 1600 block of Seventh Street; the 1700 block of North 10th Street; 18th Avenue North from Eighth Street to 10th Street; and 17th Avenue North from Fourth Street to 10th Street.

“Our goal there is to just add enough rock to create a decent enough structure to drive on and then reclaim and regard the surface and then do a double chip seal. We think that’s an acceptable method of maintaining 16th and 17th Avenue North,” Craft said.

He added the project will only take a couple of weeks to complete and residents will be notified when the project will begin.

Surface milling and cold in-place recycling are scheduled to take place on South 30th Street and 16th Street Northwest in July or August. Resurfacing on both of those streets will only cause slight delays in traffic, Craft said. The milling and recycling process will take a week as should the paving process.

“That’s another advantage to recycling projects,” Craft said. “It’s a greener project. It’s a lot less traffic delays, it’s more affordable and it’s more sustainable than your conventional overlay project.”
