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.
