Road resurfacing provides a smoother, safer ride. Vehicle traffic and seasonal weather wear down the driving surface over time. Resurfacing helps extend the overall service life of the road and typically occurs when the driving surface is in disrepair and routine preventative maintenance like patching is no longer effective. Pavement resurfacing consists of applying a new top layer to the existing driving surface. Materials used vary from road to road and consider several factors, including cost, construction schedule and the volume of traffic using the newly-paved road.
The following county highways will be resurfaced in 2018:
- Highway 52
- Highway 53
- Highway 135
- Highway 122
Current Traffic Impacts
There are no impacts to traffic at this time.
What to Expect
A thin layer of highway pavement will be ground off to improve the pavement smoothness, and a thin layer of asphalt pavement will be placed on top. Gravel will be added to the shoulders and new pavement markings will be installed.
Highways 52, 135, 122
- Intermittent flagging operations are expected.
- Full closure of Highway 53 between Highway 212 and 134th street for two days. A detour route will be signed.
