Resurfacing of parts of 25 Oak Ridge streets is scheduled to start Saturday.
“The project will begin on Wisconsin Avenue with repairs to correct surface and drainage problems, which will be followed by concrete work by city personnel to correct drainage problems,” a press release said. “This project will generally proceed from west to east.”
The resurfacing work is being done by Rogers Group Inc. under a contract with the City of Oak Ridge. The project, which could last six weeks, will result in some lane closures.
“Local traffic will be able to access homes and business, but through traffic should seek alternate routes to avoid delays,” the press release said.
The list of street to be resurfaced is available on the city’s website.
It said parts of some streets will be milled before the resurfacing work, and new pavement markings will be installed after the final surface is in place.
“Residents of the streets being milled and/or resurfaced should receive a notice advising them to have all vehicles removed from the street by 7 a.m. on the day of the scheduled milling and/or resurfacing,” the release said. “Citizens should expect multiple inconveniences due to various phases of the paving operation.”
After receiving the notice, residents should not park their vehicles on the streets until after the work has been completed, the release said.
The work schedule could change due to weather, and repair of unforeseen conditions may delay the project.
