Roads will be closed to traffic during construction for a period not to exceed 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Residents will be provided sufficient notice of closures and special requests will be accommodated.

Microsurfacing is a common method of pavement surface treatment which consists of a polymer modified asphalt slurry (about 3/8 inch thick) that coats the pavement surface and creates a smooth moisture-resistant barrier. It also increases ride-ability and seals smaller cracks. When combined with proper pavement sealing, microsurfacing extends the service life of the roadway. Streets are estimated for microsurfacing on a 6 to 8 year cycle. This year's project covers 138 blocks of primarily local City of Salina roads at a cost of about $5,000 per block.

The $700,000 project is a major component of the City of Salina's $4.7 million 2019 maintenance capital improvement program.
