PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Remove Existing Asphalt overlay, evaluate and repair underlying concrete panels, and install new 2 inch asphalt overlay.

JUSTIFICATION

This section of roadway has failed where it was widened over 30 years ago. The failed section consists of 2" of asphalt over iron ore base, and has far surpassed its life expectancy. These sections will be replaced with concrete. Also, several sections of the existing concrete road have cracked and buckled. These sections will also be replaced. It is anticipated due to the narrowness of this road section that there will be times that one-way traffic may be required, as well as full traffic closures and detours. Upon completion of the concrete work, the roadway will be inspected to determine if an asphalt overlay is required to improve ride, drainage, or other cosmetic issues.

PROJECT UPDATE

The roadway has been repaired, a new asphalt overlay has been added, and striping has been applied.
The Houston St. Reconstruction project is now complete.
