Cedar Ave. has been reopened today, but another street in the neighborhood, 38th St. between Chicago and 23rd Ave. S., is closed as crews work to repave it.
According to the city’s web site, 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.
Work on the center island in front of the Bancroft school started on July 24; the resurfacing began on Monday, July 30.
People are encouraged to detour north/south along either Chicago or 28th, and east/west along 42nd.
