Residents will be asked to remove their cars from streets to facilitate the work, which will take place generally between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Access to properties within work zones will be maintained at all times. "Road Work Ahead" signs will be placed in advance of work zones, and temporary single-lane closures are to be expected. Motorists are asked to proceed with caution when approaching work zones for the safety of the crews performing the work.

The annual crack and joint sealing program is an important and cost-effective preventative maintenance component of the City of Salina's annual street repair program. Crack sealing the pavement helps prevent water from penetrating into the pavement structure of sub-base material and aids in reducing a number of pavement problems which include: crack spreading; formation of voids under pavement; swelling and shrinking of sub-base materials; freeze-thaw action; alligator cracking; potholing; and complete failure. Because of its importance and cost-effectiveness, the Department of Public Works strives to seal each asphalt street in Salina no less often than every seven years. Nearly 26 centerline miles of streets will be sealed in 2019.

The $319,000 project is a major component of the City of Salina's $4.7 million 2019 maintenance capital improvement program.
