Beginning on Wednesday, July 30, Columbia Public Works - Street Division will continue annual pavement preservation maintenance on several Columbia roads. This maintenance consists of sealing existing road surfaces to prolong the life of our roadways. On these particular streets, they type of pavement preservation maintenance to be performed is referred to as "chip seal".
Some of the roadways which will be affected by chip seal pavement preservation the week of July 28, weather permitting, are:
Wed/Thur July 30 & 31
Concord St between Meghann Dr and Yourtown Dr
Faurot Dr between Defoe Dr and Rothwell Dr
Defoe Dr between Defoe Ct and Faurot Dr
Defoe Ct between Faurot Dr and the end of the cul-de-sac
Thur/Fri July 31 and August 1
Tracy Dr between Sunset Ln and West Stewart Rd
Forest Hill Ct between Rollins Rd and the end of the cul-de-sac
Duke St between Stanford Dr and Oxford Dr
Ruby Ln between Lowe St and Ash St
Pershing Rd between Worley St and Broadway
We understand that fresh asphalt, loose gravel, and lane closures are a hassle. However, as you navigate through work zones, please bear in mind that these workers are doing the very important job of repairing or prolonging the life of our streets, which we all rely on to safely get where we need to go. In addition, pavement preservation treatments require less time and less traffic disruption than the expensive reconstruction projects being avoided or delayed.
Finally, remember that road crews consist of Dads, Moms, Sons, Daughters, Brothers and Sisters, who make roadways their office. Be patient, drive slowly, watch for workers in and around roadways, and take alternate routes around construction areas when possible. We thank you for understanding!
