Pavement maintenance operations will take place on several Roswell streets during the next four weeks or so.
Residents and businesses will receive printed information regarding the work about two days before operations begin in their area, according to a city of Roswell press release.
The current schedule, which is subject to change due to weather and other factors:
• Aug. 26 – North Washington Avenue, from College Boulevard to 19th Street.
• Aug. 27-29 – Sycamore Avenue, from Bland Street to the alley north of Eighth Street.
• Aug. 30-Sept. 5 – West Alameda Street, from Saucedo Avenue to Sunset Avenue (no work Aug. 31-Sept. 2 during the Labor Day weekend).
• Sept. 6-19 – (including Saturdays) South Main Street, from Martin Street to Jaffa Street.
The “hot recycling” operations will require the contractor’s crew to close some traffic lanes and some complete portions of streets at various times. The pavement heaters used in the work produce extreme heat to soften existing pavement, “so citizens should keep vehicles and other items a significant distance from the curb while the work is being done in their area,” according to the press release.
Hot recycling involves heating the existing pavement, removing debris from it, repaving with it and compacting the pavement.
