CLAYTON — The John R. Jurgensen Co. has been busy grinding and paving streets throughout the city of Clayton this spring.

Spring of 2016 marked the beginning of a three-year comprehensive Road Resurfacing Program. The work consists of a $6 million project over three years that will resurface 67 lane miles of local roads and 15 lane miles of arterial roads.

Workers recently milled the old surface off Linchmere Drive and Tuesday morning began to mill the surface off Janice Place.

The “mill and fill” process began the week of May 22 on Westbrook Road between Union and Diamond Mill roads. Streets and alleys in the old village portion of Clayton have been completed.

A total of 62 streets will be paved under traffic control. This means that all parked cars will need to be removed from the streets during the paving process, but they can allow traffic to pass. The only time driveways will be blocked is when the paver and rollers are in front of them. Once the equipment passes and they roll the new asphalt, residents can return or leave their driveway. Notice will be given 24-hrs prior to paving starting on a street.

Streets scheduled for paving this year include: Afton, Baronsmere, Boston, Brushwood, Cedar Bluff, Cheri Lynne, Clinton, Colemere, Corydale, Coughlin, Countrydale, Crownwood, Deville, Doreshire, Elin, Elmway, Freeport, Galaxie, Gold Key, Greenbank, Greenbay, Grosse Point, Highfield, Hill Street, Honeybrook, Janice, Kevton, Laurel Fork, Lavon, Linchmere, Lockwood, Mill Street, Mintwood, Morrow, Murray, Noranda, Northfield, Oren, Ponderosa, Portrait, Rahway, Ramsey, Ranch Hill, Rangeview, Reeves, Robert Ulrich, Rosebud Way, Rundell, Rymark, Satellite, Semley, Shell, Spring Street, Starlight, Stonewall, Tymill, Viewmont, Water Street, Whitaker and Willowcreek.

“We appreciate everyone’s patience during this process and look forward to better roadways,” said Public Service Director Randy Sanders.

Any questions should be directed to Sanders at (937) 836-3500 extension 123.
