As part of the ongoing asphalt preservation program, the City has contracted with Lakeside Industries to complete the 2019 Asphalt Overlay Project.
The project will include work on the following streets:
Commercial Avenue - SR 20 roundabout to Fidalgo Avenue
M Avenue - 32nd Street to 35th Street
B Avenue - 32nd Street to 29th Street
29th, 30th, 31st, and 32nd Streets - west of D Avenue
The project will involve pavement repair, grinding existing pavement, placement of new asphalt, adjusting manholes and other utilities to grade, and pavement striping. The project begins Monday, July 29th with full construction expected to begin with pavement repair grinding on Tuesday, July 30th. Construction for this project is expected to take approximately 30 working days with the major grinding and paving operations occurring during the first three weeks starting July 29th.
During construction there will be no street parking along these roadways, and there will be intermittent short term road closures with traffic detours to allow for the work.
Access to 38th Street off of Commercial Avenue, 35th Street off of M Avenue and the B Avenue, 29th Street, 30th Street, 31st Street and 32nd Street neighborhoods from D Avenue will be maintained with flagging traffic control. People living in these areas should let the flaggers clearly know that they need access and wait to be directed when it is safe to proceed.
Some pavement grinding and placement of new asphalt on the Commercial Avenue portion of the project will occur during nighttime hours to assist with traffic control. Please check the Anacortes Public Works section of the City website and the Anacortes Public Works Facebook site for scheduling updates on the nighttime work.
Thank you in advance for your patience and cooperation while we make these needed improvements to the roadway. If you have any questions or concerns please contact me at (360) 588-8068.
