Street Resurfacing -- Delay to Aug 10th
Loren and Sue Cook of FFNA attended a public meeting June 29th at the Riley Library at Mahany Center. Jerry and Noah from the Roseville Street Maintenance Division gave a presentation on the resurfacing project expected to begin in late July. The project is routine maintenance done every 7-10 years to protect the streets from daily elements and protect them from more costly repair work later. The projected area for work (see map) will be in Fiddyment Farm developments along Hayden Parkway and Bob Doyle Drive (original core area of Fiddyment Farm south of Blue Oaks Blvd).
The ‘Slurry Seal” project they will do in Fiddyment Farm costs about 21-cents per square foot now, as opposed to the more expensive $2.00 per square foot costs of tear-out and replacement with Rubberized overlay to repair a number of the older sections of town (done only as costs allow). The main source of funds is provided through gas taxes, but some money comes from other underground utility-user sources and federal funds. Many roads in older NAs require complete tear-out and replacement or repair of underground drains before they can begin work on the roads, which adds to the cost of the roadwork. Upgrade of streets to ADA requirements also contributes to the work involved. As a newer NA, our streets will require only the Slurry Seal project.
Residents will be given notice on doors 5 working days in advance of the start of the project, and signs will be posted along streets. Please make sure you have cars removed from the street during the posted work times. According to Mr. Dankbar, the streets will actually get better as they age after the project. However, if needed, you may call 774-5790 to report safety issues.
Residents on the affected streets will be notified by mail and with door hangers with the work schedule and details about what to expect during resurfacing.
