Overlay Paving

Mill & Overlay Program

Every year the Public Works Department performs a partial depth mill and bituminous overlay process as part of the pavement preservation program. This process consists of milling approximately 2 inches of the existing pavement at the edge of the street and along the curb. Following the edge milling, a 2 inch lift of bituminous pavement laid across the full width of the street. This street preservation process is done on an annual basis by City crews, with the assistance of a paving contractor.

Prior to this maintenance operation, the affected streets will be posted with yellow NO PARKING THIS SIDE signs. All parking is prohibited in the posted work zone Monday through Friday from 7:00 am to 5:00 pm. All violators will be ticketed and towed. Parking restrictions are for daytime maintenance activities only, with parking allowed on weekends and after hours in these posted areas.

After the milling process and prior to overlaying, there will be bumps at each end of the milled areas along with exposed/raised manhole castings and gate valve risers. Residents are encouraged to find alternate routes, however if they must use streets under construction, drive cautiously and slowly through these areas and expect uneven pavement, bumps and rough surfaces. After the overlay process has been completed, the NO PARKING signs may remain in certain areas until further manhole adjustments are completed. The timing for completion of each street segment is weather dependent.
