Chip seal treatment begins tomorrow on various streets
BATTLE CREEK, Mich. — Chip seal will begin on Saturday, Sept. 9, on the following streets:
Golden Ave. – Capital Ave. SW to east City limits
Carver Rd. - south City limit to Stone Jug Rd.
Stone Jug Rd. – Carver Rd. to Beckley Rd.
Beckley Rd. – Stone Jug Rd. to Helmer Rd.
Work will take place from approximately 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Work is expected to be finished by September 15, weather permitting.
The work is being done through the City’s MDOT Areawide Preventative Maintenance contract. Chip seal is an effective way to extend the life of street pavement, lasting five to six years. Crews apply liquid asphalt and small stone chips, then roll over it.
The streets will remain open and neighbors will have access to their properties. Please plan for intermittent traffic disruptions, which could cause delays.
Please do not park on these streets during work hours; vehicles will be towed.
Residents on these streets will receive door hangers the day before work begins.
We appreciate everyone’s patience during this and all work to maintain our infrastructure.
