The Public Works Directors Office announced today that starting Monday, August 10, 2020 at approximately 7:00 a.m., and for the next four to six weeks, the City’s contractor will begin the 2020 Seal Coat Streets Reconstruction across Burlington. Construction will include the following streets: 8th Street, 10th Street, 14th Street, 15th Street, 16th Street, Acres Street, Harrison Street, Hedge Street, and Jackson Street.
This will result in temporary street closures and/or lane restrictions. The closures and restrictions are required to place additional crushed rock, rework the existing surface, place new sealcoat surfacing, upgrade ADA ramps and some storm sewer work that will require full road closures.
Once work begins on a street, there will be no parking signs posted on that street within the construction zone until the street surface is restored. Motorists should be cautious of trucks, equipment and workers in and around the work area.
