Road Resurfacing Program - Questions and Answers

How will I be notified if my street will be resurfaced?

If your street requires work, you will receive a letter from us within two weeks of construction. You can also expect to receive a door-hanger 48 hours before the crew arrives, asking you to please prepare.

What do I need to do to prepare for the paving crew?

We are asking residents and business operators to help in keeping construction on schedule by:

  • Moving any part of your sprinkler system off the town’s property. The contractor will not be responsible for damage to sprinkler systems located on town property, whether it’s marked or not.
  • Not parking on the street during the day while construction is underway.
  • Relocating your vehicle if access to your driveway is closed.
  • A door-hanger will be left with those residents or businesses that require additional work in front of their property that may restrict access to their driveway, e.g. curb reconstruction, etc. We will advise them where they can park overnight during this time.

What can I expect during construction?

The resurfacing with take approximately 3 to 5 weeks to complete and is typically completed in 5 separate phases. Those phases include Localized Concrete repairs, Full or Partial Depth Asphalt Removal and Grading, Asphalt Replacement, Maintenance Hole Adjustments and Final Layer Asphalt Placement.

Can I get my sidewalk or curb replaced?

Repairs are completed to address drainage issues, tripping hazards and improve accessibility. Curb and sidewalks are not repaired to correct aesthetic issues such as minor cracking

Sod restorations are typically completed in September-October when the temperature and weather conditions are more favorable for sod placement. The contractor will remove weeds and re-grade the areas prior to sod placement.
