Resurfacing of the following town streets will begin next week:
Lois Avenue from Broadway to Bayside Drive; the west part of Broadway including the beach access parking; Firehouse Road; Joy Street; Wake Island Road, the Emerald Harbor entrance; Putting Green Lane around the 500 block, along with island repairs; and the Country Shores south entrance.
Weather-permitting, construction will begin the week of Aug. 12 and will be complete in two or three weeks. Residents of each street will be notified within 24 hours of when the pavement will take place.
Streets will first be swept and have their sod and soils clipped back at the edge of the pavement. In some locations, the existing asphalt will be removed within 6 feet of the edge of the curb.
In the third week of August, streets will be tacked with liquid asphalt before new asphaltic concrete will be placed, followed by the final sweeping and cleanup.
Drivers should avoid traveling on the tack coat and hot asphalt immediately after placement. Typically, you will be able to drive on the street within one hour of pavement completion. Streets will be open to traffic flow at all times for emergencies.
