Several Road Projects Get Underway This Week in Pasco

A number of microsurfacing road projects in Pasco will impact drivers tomorrow and Wednesday. The following roads will be closed from 7am – 7pm both days:

  • · Sylvester Street from Road 34 to Road 52
  • · Road 40 from Sylvester to Riverhaven Street
  • · Riverhaven Street from Road 40 to Road 44
  • · Road 44 from Sylvester Street to Riverhaven Street
  • · Irving Street from Road 40 to Road 44
  • · Road 45 from Sylvester Street to Road 44

Emergency vehicles will have access during these closures.

As part of the City’s pavement management program, microsurfacing provides a new top surface for streets while protecting the undersurface from further deterioration. Because microsurface applications result in a coating that is about ¼ of the thickness (1/2” vs. 2”) of a typical asphalt overlay, the cost savings are significant (microsurfacing can cost as little as 20% of the cost of an overlay). Also, the road or street section performs better as more frequent new top surface coats are applied over its lifetime.
