State route 303 resurfacing to begin


Construction on the State Route 303/Center Road project is set to begin on July 13, 2015.
The project will include repairs to curbs, ramps and intersections, as well as a complete resurfacing of the road surface between Substation and W. 130th Street.

In the first few weeks of the project, work will focus on restoring and replacing curbing, intersection repairs and curb ramp repairs. Some of this work will be done during the daytime hours and will result in some temporary lane closures; however, traffic will be maintained throughout the entire project.

The resurfacing of the roadway, which will include grinding and removal of existing asphalt, and replacement with a new, smooth surface will begin sometime after August 1st. The resurfacing is expected to take place during the overnight hours to avoid traffic disruption. The project will take place in two steps. Following the initial grinding and milling of the old asphalt, there will be a period of time before the final asphalt layer is applied. After the paving is complete, lane marking and casting adjustments will occur that may result in some short term lane restrictions as well.

The entire project is required to be completed by October 31, 2015, however, the contractor anticipates the project will be done much sooner, weather permitting.
