Phase 2 is scheduled later in 2020 and will resurface the parkway between the railroad bridge and Plymouth Ave N.

Additional parkway sections are scheduled to be repaved in 2021 (see project map).

Please follow posted detours and use caution in areas where work is being performed.

Street resurfacing is a type of street maintenance that removes the top layer of asphalt pavement on a street and puts on a new layer of asphalt. This extends the life of the street between more expensive fixes. The asphalt pavement resurfacing is intended to last about 10 years.
