Work crews to begin sealing cracks in existing pavement

August 10, 2010

Work crews from Slurry Pavers Inc. will begin sealing cracks in existing pavement beginning today at 7 a.m., weather permitting. The work is being done as part of the City's Pavement Preservation Program.

The work will be performed on the following streets:

o Security Road between North Cleveland Avenue and Pangborn Boulevard

o Pangborn Boulevard between Security Road and Monet Drive

o Conrad Court

o Opal Court

o Professional Court

The crack-sealing work is a mobile operation and the contractor will use flaggers, signs, cones and other devices to control traffic around the work zone, the city said in a press release. At least one lane of traffic will be kept open to allow vehicles to pass around the construction equipment.


Emergency vehicles will be able to pass through the work zones on these streets, but traffic congestion is likely in these areas. Motorists are advised that traffic delays are likely, and that they should seek routes away from the work area.

It is anticipated that the work on these streets will be completed by 5 p.m. today, the release said.

Anyone with questions may contact the city's Department of Parks and Engineering at 301-739-8577, ext. 125.
