The City typically conducts its planned annual street maintenance project each spring when temperatures are ideal for asphalt work and the summer rains have yet to arrive. That’s true again this year, with repairs moving forward in three Sierra Vista neighborhoods.
The bid for the City’s annual street maintenance project was recently awarded to KE&G and crews got started doing patch work in the neighborhood around North Avenue between Fry Boulevard and Taylor Drive last week. Crews will begin laying down a sand seal in that same area Monday as conditions allow, starting with Fry Boulevard between Buffalo Soldier Train and Carmichael Avenue and then heading up North Avenue. See map.
Sand seals will next be completed along the neighborhood streets south of Golf Links Road between Regency Drive and Town and Country Drive, where patch work was completed last year. See map.
Sunburst Drive, Sunburst Place, and Sunview Way will also receive sand seals as part of the same project. See map.
Sand seals are a cost-effective way to improve the surface and extend the life of streets before they deteriorate to a point where a more costly reconstruction is required. The City identifies street maintenance projects using a Pavement Condition Index Survey, which helps make the most of limited resources.
Motorists and pedestrians are advised to find alternate routes around the construction activity when possible. If travel through the area is necessary, please use caution, heed all warning signs, and stay clear of any construction equipment. Residents in the areas receiving sand seals will be notified via door hangers before work begins.
