10th Street work to begin Wednesday
WORTHINGTON -- Resurfacing of 10th Street from First Avenue to East Ninth Avenue is tentatively scheduled to begin Wednesday. Work will begin with surface milling and conclude with a bituminous overlay.
Tenth Street will be open to restricted traffic during milling and cleanup, but traffic will be diverted around milling operations as it progresses up and down the street. No parking will be allowed in the blocks where milling and cleanup is planned for the day.
Milling and cleanup work is estimated to take up to three working days. Bituminous paving will follow completion of the milling work.
Tenth Street, from First Avenue to Eighth Avenue, will be closed to all traffic and parking in multiple block segments during the surfacing and cool-down time period. Surfacing work is estimated to be completed within three working days. Tenth Street, from Eighth Avenue to Ninth Avenue, will be open to alternating two-way traffic under flagmen control during cold milling and the surfacing and cool-down time period. Traffic will experience brief intermittent interruptions throughout the work.
Paved areas will be reopened as soon as the new bituminous surface has adequately cooled. Through traffic should avoid the work area and use adjacent Ninth Street and Eleventh Street alternate routes until the work is completed.
Weather permitting and construction proceeding as planned, a majority of the street work should be completed in seven to 10 days.
