Slurry Seal Work
The Town wide slurry seal project will begin on Monday, October 3. Slurry sealing is a coating applied to roads in good condition to prolong their life. The slurry seal specified for this project is a quick set product that will be ready for traffic within a couple of hours.
Staging for the project will be occurring in the parking lot. Therefore, the lot will be closed to the public from October 2 to 7. There will still be access to the park and parking roadside.
Access to streets and driveways during the work will be limited. In order to accommodate the work there will be some loss of street parking. When the work commences, there will be some traffic delays or street closures. However, every effort will be made to minimize disruption to traffic flow during these paving operations and access to your street will be available by the end of each day. Notices will be provided to residents when the work is ready to commence with details about parking restrictions and road closures. The overnight parking ordinance WILL NOT be enforced during this construction period.
