Jefferson Street Reconstruction

Jefferson Street was constructed in 1976 on unstable soils. Over the years the street has experienced damage caused by the poor clayey soils. Since 2015, the City has been planning to reconstruct the street to improve the ride quality, reduce the maintenance and provide a product that will serve the community for many years to come.

The project will consist of grinding all of the existing pavement and gravel. This material will be reused as the base course under the new street. Additionally, the City will cement treat the clay. This is called cement stabilization and will provide a very hard surface to place the mixed material and the new pavement.

Construction is planned to begin on July 30th with completion expected no later than November 1st. This is all weather dependent; extensions due to poor weather may be granted to the contractor.
