Palos Park Street Resurfacing Project Update
The first layer of asphalt has been placed on 113th, 114th, 115th, 116th 123rd Place, Ramsgate and Black Walnut. Over the next couple weeks these streets will be made ready for the surface layer including prepping driveways for a smooth joint with the new surface.
Surface removal will continue next week in the Wild Cherry area followed by South Woodland Trail, Timber Lane and the Walnut Ridge/Holmes area. Once the grinding of the existing surface is complete the first layer of asphalt will be placed.
Remember that prior to laying new asphalt, prime oil is sprayed onto the base or binder to allow better cohesion between the layers. Once the oil is placed, the surface is drivable but it is best to go slowly to avoid splashing oil on your vehicle.
