Street Resurfacing Project to Begin Next Week

The City of Muskogee Public Works is working with APAC Central to resurface several residential streets next month.  This is part of the 5-year street maintenance plan to improve and maintain Muskogee’s streets. The street project will begin October 8 and will continue until approximately November 1, 2018. 

This project will remove the top two inches of the asphalt street and then crews will overlay new asphalt. Milling removes the old surface and helps to restore the street to its original shape.  Thoroughfare roads are treated with this maintenance every ten to 12 years and residential streets are treated at least 30 years after they were newly constructed. The asphalt used for this project will produced locally.  The following streets will be resurfaced:

 

  • North 15th (MLK to Emporia)
  • North 16th (MLK to Emporia)
  • North 17th (MLK to Emporia)
  • North 18th (MLK to Emporia)
  • North 19th (MLK to Emporia)
  • Emporia (North 12th to North 21st)

 

This work will be done with intermediate road closures and the public is urged to use extreme caution and follow all warning signs, lane shifts, and other traffic control measures. There may be instances when the contractor is working directly in front of a property and access may be restricted for a short period of time. The City of Muskogee asks for your patience during this process.

The $268,540.00 project is a major component of the City of Muskogee’s 5-year street maintenance program.
