2013 Microsurfacing Road Work Department of Public Works


Beginning Monday, June 10, 2013, City contractors will begin applying microsurfacing on Broadway Boulevard, between Ash and Crawford Streets. The work will include applying the asphalt surface treatment and placing temporary pavement markings.

To minimize inconveniences to the public, the contractor will be performing this work at night between the hours of 8 pm and 6 am. Temporary traffic control and flaggers will be present to direct vehicles through the work zones and maintain traffic flow. The public should be prepared for minor delays during work activities. The work on Broadway is expected to be completed by Thursday, June 13, 2013.

Microsurfacing is a method of pavement surface treatment which prolongs the serviceability of streets by creating a moisture-resistant barrier while increasing the ride-ability. This process has been successfully used in Salina for many years. Combined with joint and crack sealing, this surface treatment program extends the service life of pavement.
