‘Tis the season for construction projects and at the top of the list each summer is repaving projects. With more sun, longer days, and fewer cars on the roads, it’s prime time for construction crews to head out on many roads to repave and make repairs.
The City of Bellevue will be attending to approximately 22 miles of Bellevue streets this summer. The video below gives an overview of the Streets Overlay program and how the grinding and overlay process works.
The City of Bellevue has also put together a page dedicated to informing you of upcoming projects so you can be aware of whats happening. Remember, part of the paving process involves putting temporary rubber locators in the roadway to identify utility lids.
Finally, there is a great animation and explanation of grinding/overlay over at Pavement Interactive. The website walks you through the different procedures that occur between the grinding off of the old asphalt and the placing of the new layer.
