Smoothing the Way for Better Roads in Arlington
Published on March 08, 2017
It's almost time for annual road paving.
The season begins early next month and ends in late October, hitting those streets showing deterioration and related issues from winter. Concrete repairs in advance of paving began a few weeks ago.
This week the County began mailing notification letters to residents whose streets will be paved this season. Follow-up door hangers will be delivered just before the work starts.
Each roadway's top 1½-to-2-inches of asphalt is replaced by milling and paving the surface in a process that also includes: concrete curb, gutter and sidewalk repairs; utility adjustments; and pavement markings.Keep an eye out for "No Parking" signs in your neighborhood.
Once signs are posted, your street must be cleared of all vehicles. Use a driveway or park on an adjoining street.
Failure to do so may result in towing. If your vehicle is towed, call the Arlington County Police Department at 703-558-2222.
