Summer Paving this Week: Night Work on Greenburg Road
S-2 Contractors worked to pave portions of Greenburg Road and Tiedeman Avenue starting on Monday. Next week they will be paving Greenburg Road from Tiedeman Avenue to Pacific Highway during the day – expect delays from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Pavement overlays on busy streets and on roads with severe cracks and potholes restore the road to good pavement condition.
Intermountain Slurry Seal, Inc. will be slurry sealing many streets in northern Tigard in late July and Early August. A slurry seal is a liquid mixture of thick oil, sand, and other additives applied to the surface of a roadway to extend its life by restoring the asphalt binder near the pavement surface.
Each year city staff work to plan the program, and as part of doing so send out thousands of notices to city residents. For more information, and to view an interactive map of the paving locations visit http://www.tigard-or.gov/paving_faqs/
