Notice of Street Resurfacing: Flower Avenue (Carroll to Piney Branch): Sept 8-9 and Sept 10 & 11

Flower Avenue (Carroll to Piney Branch)

Your street is scheduled for resurfacing. The work will be done in two phases; first base correction followed by resurfacing with new asphalt. The work hours will be 7:00 AM to 5:00 PM. Access to your driveway will be limited or blocked during the work. Rain or inclement weather can delay the schedule.

Base work is scheduled: September 8 & 9

During the base operation, the contractor adds asphalt to the existing milled surface. This sets the shape of the road so the final surface properly sheds water and drains correctly overall. The process moves fairly quickly, first one side and then the other. There is no parking allowed on the street during the work. No Parking signs will be posted a couple of days prior. If the schedule changes, the signs will be revised. A single lane will be closed for the work. There will be limited ability to drive over the hot material for residents to access driveways. Always ask a present crew member first and get clear approval. Once the asphalt has cooled to a set temperature the street will re-open fully.

Paving is scheduled: September 10 & 11

During the paving operation, the contractor will first sweep the surface, then apply a tack coat, and then lay the asphalt. The affected lane will be closed during the paving and there will be NO ABILITY to drive through the lane during the work. (THIS WILL RESTRICT ACCESS TO DRIVEWAYS, SIDESTREETS, ALL CROSSINGS) Once the work is done the street will re-open. Please plan to remove any cars parked on the street prior to 7:00 AM.
