The Des Moines Asphalt and Paving Co. will return Monday for additional street resurfacing in Perry, including the roads in Violet Hill Cemetery, the Perry City Hall announced Friday.
Motorists should expect some minor disruptions to traffic during the construction on Fifth Street, Eighth Street, Graceland Avenue and the intersections of W. Second and Park streets and Dewey Avenue and Sixth Street. The disruptions will be confined to daylight hours only, the city said.
Des Moines Asphalt will place door hangers on the homes of affected residents in advance of the project. If you have a vehicle parked on the street and have been notified of street work, be sure to move your vehicle before the work begins.
The work will vary in areas of the community from removal of the existing surface to pavement patching and installation of a new asphalt surface. Traffic barricades will be erected on the affected streets, and access will be limited during work hours, but streets will be reopened to traffic at the end of each day.
Residents are asked to avoid the construction areas and respect the barricades in order to ensure everyone’s safety and “to help the contractors build a great street,” the city said.
The project is funded by the city’s one-cent Local Option Sales Tax and the 10-cent fuel tax increase approved by state of Iowa in 2015. The last paving project was in 2016. The city said it will continue to schedule multi-block overlay projects in other areas of the town in future years.
