PITTSBURG — The Pittsburg 2018 Street Improvement Project is underway, which includes milling existing asphalt and overlay of new asphalt.
Areas affected include West Quincy Street and Countryside Addition.
According to a release, the paving work on West Quincy Street was to begin Nov. 19, weather permitting.
The weather has thrown off the schedule and paving work is rescheduled for 9 a.m. on Wednesday.
“We thought the temperatures were going to be warmer than forecast,” Director of Public Works Cameron Alden said.
If the paving is not completed on Wednesday, the crew will continue on Friday and Saturday, weather permitting.
Another crew is scheduled to work on the Countryside Addition on Wednesday.
According to a release, the traffic will remain open during construction but residents should expect lane closures and minor delays. Motorists are encouraged to seek alternate routes when possible.
In separate project, the pavement patching on Rouse and Atkinson streets are close to wrapping up work, Alden said. Next, crews will be patching west of the KCS Overpass toward Broadway.
The City of Pittsburg is asking motorists to use extreme caution when traveling in the area of construction and be aware of workers in the work zone.
