Signs will be posted prior to the asphalt paving. These signs will include the dates that the paving will take place. During this time, it will be necessary to close the road to all vehicle traffic for approximately 10-15 hours. The City asks that all vehicles, trailers, boats, and any other items be removed from the City Right-of-Way during these dates to allow the paving company access to the street for paving operations.

There will be a minimal closure on Monday, Sep. 23 from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. as there will be cleaning and grinding of the roads. A full closure of 2nd Avenue and Qaudrant Street on Tuesday, Sep. 24 as there will be an overlay from 7:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. One lane of traffic will be open on 6th Avenue on Wednesday, Sep. 25 from 7:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. as they overlay that street.
