On Friday, August 19th, Vance Brothers of Kansas City, Missouri will resurface 8th Street from Prescott to Ash Streets, weather permitting.
The street will be closed to traffic during construction for a period not to exceed 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Occupants of properties adjacent to the street will be provided sufficient notice of the closure and special requests will be accommodated.
Microsurfacing is a common method of pavement surface treatment which consists of a polymer modified asphalt slurry (about 3/8 inch thick) that coats the pavement surface and creates a smooth moisture-resistant barrier. It also increases ride-ability and seals smaller cracks. When combined with proper pavement sealing, micro-surfacing extends the service life of the roadway. Streets are estimated for microsurfacing on a 6 to 8 year cycle at an estimated cost of about $5,000 per block.
The $851,000 project is a major component of the City of Salina's $4.7 million 2022 maintenance capital improvement program.
