Here’s the skinny on University Road

We got an email yesterday asking about the status of University Road, so I thought I'd post some information for anyone who hasn't spotted the occasional updates in my city council stories. The pavement on University between Fourth and 16th Avenues was ground down several weeks ago, but then work stopped and hasn't resumed. The city had Poe Asphalt do the grinding under the city's street maintenance contract with Poe, but the contract ran out of money before the project was complete. The city then put the paving portion of the project out to bid, which does take some time.

The good news is that the bid has been awarded and the most recent news from the city indicates the contractor will start work on Aug. 9. It will take about a week to complete the sealing, paving and striping and then the road will be as good as new.
