4th Avenue South Street Paving Project Update
The paving project for 4th Ave S is estimated to begin on August 14th.
This paving project is expected to last 6 months.
Before repaving, crews will grind off a 2-inch deep layer of the existing asphalt.
Crews will then evaluate the underlying road base for any additional needed repairs to make sure
the road can better withstand the weight of heavy trucks that regularly traverse these streets.
Once these base repairs have been completed, a new 2-inch layer of asphalt will be applied.
The curb lanes on both sides of the street will be reconstructed with a full depth asphalt section
to better withstand the weight of heavy buses and trucks. Once the full depth repairs have
been made, the street itself will be repaved.
Crews will also:
- Replace curb ramps at some intersections to bring them into compliance with the
federal Americans with Disabilities (ADA) Act
- Replace traffic detection loops in the pavement
- Install drainage systems at select locations
- Replaced buckled sidewalks in select locations
