On Monday, August 10, 2020, Strawser Construction, Inc. of Columbus is scheduled to start work on the City of Urbana’s 2020 Microsurfacing Program. All work is weather permitting. Parking restrictions will be posted within work areas, and vehicles parked in violation will be towed. In addition, flaggers will be used by the contractor to maintain traffic. Brief closures of cross streets are possible. Prior to the microsurfacing work, a subcontractor will remove the existing pavement markings. After the microsurfacing work is completed, temporary pavement markings will be installed on the new surface, followed by permanent markings about two weeks later.
This work is under contract for $130,037.63 and is a portion of the city’s planned asphalt maintenance and paving projects for 2020. Under this program, the following streets are scheduled to be microsurfaced: East Water Street from South Main Street to Finch Street and East Lawn Avenue from Scioto Street to Bloomfield Avenue. Microsurfacing is a pavement preservation technique that extends the useful life of the existing pavement. East Water Street was last resurfaced in 2006 and East Lawn Avenue was last resurfaced in 2009. Earlier this summer, Bituminous Pavement Systems completed the crack sealing of multiple streets citywide at a cost of $44,550.50. In September, asphalt resurfacing of several city streets under a separate contract with The Shelly Company is scheduled at a cost of $322,970.90.
