Asphalt Work on W. Maple Street near West Avenue
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — The City of Fayetteville Transportation Division will be milling and placing an asphalt overlay on a section of W. Maple Street between Vandeventer Avenue and the Razorback Greenway. Vehicle traffic on the section of Maple will be restricted during the follow days and times:
- Alternating lane closures for milling: Wednesday and Thursday, June 13 and 14, from 6 a.m. to 4 p.m.
- Road closure for overlaying asphalt: Friday, June 15, from 6 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Detours will be marked. The crew will work to minimize traffic delays; however, please allow extra travel time or consider and alternate route. Rain could delay or extend the estimated work time.
Oil will be sprayed on the roadway prior to the placement of asphalt overlays. If necessary, you may drive on the oil before the asphalt is placed. Please drive slowly and carefully. Driving fast will throw oil on your vehicle and endanger the crew. If oil is thrown on your vehicle, it can be removed with WD-40 spray and paper towels.
Small piles of debris/asphalt left at the edge of the roadway will be removed at the end of the project. (If not removed within two days, please call the office.)
The Transportation Division follows a maintenance program for existing asphalts streets within city limits, resulting in fewer complete street rebuilds and lower costs overall. Additionally, the City recycles the asphalt – old layers that have been removed are milled, sold to asphalt plants, and/or reused for new paving projects. The repaving project list can be viewed here.
