With the arrival of the warm weather, road work season has begun in Peterborough.
The City of Peterborough has announced road work projects that will take place from now until November. The work includes surface repaving, micro-surface treatments, and pavement crack sealing.
The city has identified 10 of the highest-priority streets that require surface repaving and micro-surface treatments. The road work is being done for the city by Coco Paving Inc.
Seven roads that will receive new surface asphalt paving are Fairbairn Street between Wolsely and Hillside streets, Ford Street between Chamberlain and Lansdowne streets, Langton Street between Hilliard and Water streets, Lansdowne Street West between Monaghan Road and Park Street South, Monaghan Road between Edison Avenue and Riverside Drive, Sherbrooke Street between Bethune and Reid streets, and Woodglade Boulevard between Glenforest and Kawartha Heights boulevards.
For Fairbairn Street, Lansdowne Street West, and Sherbrooke Street, grinding and paving operations will be conducted under road closure at night between 9 p.m. and 7 a.m. to reduce the impact on traffic. For Monaghan Road and Woodglade Boulevard, grinding and paving operations will be conducted under road closures during July and August to coordinate with reduced activity at nearby schools during the summer.
Two roads that will receive full-depth asphalt pavement structures are Parkhill Road East between Television Road and the Trent Canal and Television Road between Parkhill Road and the CP Rail tracks. Pulverizing, grading, and paving operations on these roads will require a single-lane closure, with flagging operations for a duration of an estimated five days for each side of the road.
One road that will receive micro-surface treatment is Milroy Drive between Chemong Road and Towerhill Road.
Along with surface repaving and micro-surface treatments, pavement crack sealing will take place at various locations across the city.
The pavement crack sealing, which is being done for the city by Fine Line Markings Inc., will help to extend the life of roads by preventing infiltration of water into the asphalt pavement surface and the structure below the road.
While no road closures are expected during the pavement crack sealing, all locations where the work is being done will experience short delays with flagging operations and lane reductions. Traffic lanes may also be shifted where required.
The schedules for all road work may change due to delays or inclement weather.
