Superior has recently begun work on its 2013 street-paving season. Crews have been patching holes with asphalt mix and preparing affected streets for milling and paving work.
The bituminous driving surface on several of the city’s streets will be reconstructed this year, as shown on the map. Some of these streets will be cleaned and patched, and then a bituminous surface will be placed directly over the existing roadway. In other cases, the existing surface has deteriorated too far and must be milled first.
A new bituminous surface can be placed after the worn and deteriorated black top has been removed. In both cases, affected streets will be posted as work progresses and the timeframe for milling and paving operations is fairly short. Milling of affected streets is expected to begin this week and last for one week.
The city also has several larger projects involving reconstruction of streets planned for 2013. Those include Central Avenue between railroad crossings which will be improved with new concrete curb and gutter, as well as drop-off parking in front of Bryant School.
Another major street reconstruction area will include East 5th Street from 12th Avenue to 6th Avenue. With the construction of the Super One grocery store, 22nd Avenue East will be reconstructed from East 2nd Street to East 5th Street. That same area will see a traffic signal installed at the intersection of East 2nd Street and 22nd Avenue.
