City Of Rock Island Beings Asphalt Preservation Program, Road Closures Begin Wednesday
The City of Rock Island is getting ready to start its 2022 Asphalt Preservation Program on two city streets. While it will be nice to have newly paved roads, that does mean road closures will need to happen for work to be done as quickly as possible. The construction will begin Wednesday on two Rock Island streets and it should only last a few days.
In a press release on Tuesday, the City of Rock Island announced that beginning Wednesday, October 5, 2022, the City of Rock Island’s contractor will begin work on the 2022 Asphalt Preservation Program.
There are two streets on this year’s program. They include Ridgewood Rd. from Andalusia Rd. to 92nd Avenue West.
The other is the intersection of 38th Street and 18th Avenue.
The good news is that work on this contract is expected to conclude within three days.
Rock Island city officials say that no on-street parking will be allowed while the contractor is sealing the pavement. Access to residential and commercial properties will be maintained as much as possible, however, there will be periods when this is not possible when the contractor is working directly in front of the drive and the filler material dries. This work usually takes only one day.
Motorists should expect travel delays at or near the work zone. city officials ask motorists to please follow all posted construction signs and flaggers for directions as needed in the work zone. In addition, watch for trucks entering and leaving the construction zone.
The City of Rock Island says they are sorry for any inconvenience due to this road work and appreciates the patience and consideration of the traveling public.
