5th Ave N, 5th St N & 8th Ave N Residential Resurfacing

Project Type:
This is a paving resurfacing project. Resurfacing projects use a mill and overlay process. This process will consist of removing a portion of the existing asphalt pavement surface and placing a new surface over the entire street. The purpose of the resurfacing program is to extend the life of a roadway by approximately 10 years. Without this program, streets in the in the program would not see surface improvements for many years.
5th Ave N was originally paved in 1946.
5th St N was originally paved in 1930 and sealcoated in 1990.
8th Ave N was originally paved in 1957 and sealcoated in 1983.

Project Limits:
The 2015 portion of the project is on 5th Street North from the intersection of 6th Ave N to 150' north of 6th Ave N.  The remainder of the project is complete.


Construction Start Date:
5th Street North from 6th Ave N and north 150' is carryover work form 2014.  This work was postponed in 2014 due to new building construction and private utility work taking place in the area.

Duration of Construction:
Concrete curb and gutter replacement will take place in April 2015 with the bituminous mill and overlay work to follow.

Traffic Impact:
The work will be performed during full or partial road closures. Please note that street parking will be impacted and short term intermittent access restrictions may occur. When construction work will be done on a particular street in the project area, the street will be posted NO PARKING prior to work on that particular street.
