Tuesday, July 7th on Sunset Lane and Townsend Rd

Rejuvenating Fog Seal is a fast, economical method for reducing the effects of oxidation of the pavement and replacing some of the hydrocarbon compounds.  It is designed to sink into the pavement and restore missing compounds.   The goal of using Fog Seal is to preserve the pavement and delay the need for repaving.  After the compound is spray applied, you should not drive on it for 2-3 hours.  Initially the sprayed areas will look brown or black, but after a few days the pavement will look like it did prior to the treatment.   This is done to proactively maintain their roads.

THIS NOTICE IS TO INFORM YOU THAT THERE WILL BE LIMITED ACCESS TO THE FOLLOWING STREETS AND/OR DRIVEWAYS FOR MICROSURFACING ON THE TIME AND DATES LISTED BELOW:

Friday, July 10th (Rain Date Monday July 13th) on Island Street, School Street, Lakeside Drive, Oak Farms Road

TIME: Work will commence at approximately 7:30 A.M. Please have your cars removed by this time if you are planning on using them and please turn off all lawn sprinkler systems.  Streets will be reopened to traffic approximately one (1) hour following completion.

MICRO SURFACING is a fast, economical method for providing a wearing surface to new or existing pavement. Micro Surfacing is the “Modern” pavement maintenance approach. Made of fine graded aggregates and asphalt emulsions, Micro Surfacing mixes are prepared on the job and spread quickly, easily and evenly on the road. Micro Surfacing pavement is considered by experts to be a non-polluting asphaltic product that improves skid resistance. Your community now joins many others who are Ecologically and Safety conscious.

*****Please ensure your car is NOT parked on the road the day of roadwork.*****

If there are any additional questions or if an emergency should arise, please contact Eric Anderson the Andover Town Administrator at [email protected]. If residents have scheduling conflicts, the town will try to work around them as best we can. The crew from Indus Inc. will make every effort to work with residents to allow emergency access.

Cheers,

Eric Anderson, Andover Town Administrator

June 16-17th

The Town of Andover will chip seal the following roads: Jurovaty Ln, Oak Farms Road, Wales Road, Riverside Drive, Stanley Road, Chesterbrook Lane, and Parker Bridge Road.

June 16th They are starting on Jurovaty Ln, then Oak Farms and then Wales. If it goes smoothly, they may finish up the rest of the roads tomorrow, if not on Wednesday.

This will be the final update on this project.

Each road will be officially closed to through traffic closed approximately 4-6 hours while it’s being chip sealed.

However, we realize that this is an inconvenience and we have arranged with the contractor to allow limited resident traffic. We will shut down only one lane at a time. For any individual residence there may be up to a 15-minute delay so plan on leaving a little early.

After the chip sealing is finished, the speed limits on the road will remain 15 mph for several days until the roads are swept. Please be careful and slow down- the windshield you save may be your own.

Notes: The exact time each road will be closed varies, but no road will be closed before 7:45 AM or after 4:30 pm. If Residents have scheduling conflicts, please let the town Administrator know at [email protected] and we will try to work around them as best we can.

Folks,

The Town of Andover is planning a number of road maintenance projects this summer and this message includes a list of roads affected and the approximate dates of the work. All dates will be confirmed as it gets closer. The town will use Facebook, town website along with the Emergency Alert System to notify residents affected. As the dates get closer, we will keep you informed to minimize your inconvenience. Any questions, please email me at [email protected]

JUNE 10th TO 12th:

Comer Contracting will chip seal the following roads: Jurovaty Lane, Jurovaty Road, Parker Bridge Road, Oak Farms Road, School Road, Lakeside Drive, Riverside Drive, Stanley Road, Chesterbrook Lane, Island Street, Wales Road.

Each road will be closed approximately 4-6 hours while it’s being chip sealed.  After the chip sealing is finished, the speed limits on the road will remain 15 mph for several days until the roads are swept.

MID TO END OF JULY:

Comer Contracting will fog seal the following roads: Jurovaty Lane, Jurovaty Road, Parker Bridge Rd., Riverside Drive, Stanley Drive, Chesterbrook Lane.

Some of the roads that were chip sealed will then be asphalt emulsion fog coated.  This is a process which lays down a thin layer of asphalt emulsion over the chip seal, which keeps the chips in place during plowing, making the road hold up better as well as being smoother to walk and drive on. This will also result in road closures of approximately 4 hours while it is applied and cures.

JULY TO AUGUST:

Indus Pavement Preservation will apply a penetrating sealant on the following roads: Sunset Lane, Townsend Road , Windrush Lane and the walking track at Veterans Memorial Field on Long Hill Road. The sealing is designed to reduce oxidation of the road surface and allow us to go longer before we have to crack seal and chip seal.  After the sealant is applied cars, will need to stay off these roads for at least three hours.

After the chip seal is applied, Indus will microsurface (cape seal) the following roads: School Rd, Lakeside Drive, Island Street, Oak Farms Road.

END OF JULY:

The end of July beginning of August, the Public Works road crew will be doing drainage repair on Shoddy Mill Road between Wales Road and Route 6. Expect delays and closures related to this work during that period.
