News Release
Pavement Preservation Project Begins in South Richland (Photo) - 07/30/20

The City of Richland Richland’s Pavement Preservation Program begins in south Richland next week. The microsurfacing project will require brief, single-lane closures on parts of Leslie Road, Keene Road, and Gage Boulevard.

Starting Sunday, August 2, crews will work through the night, from 7:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m., to remove striping and to prepare the roadway for microsurfacing. The following streets will experience lane reductions during the preparation

•           Leslie Road, from Gage Boulevard, south to Meadow Hills Drive.

•           Keene Road, from Englewood Drive to Gage Boulevard.

•           Gage Boulevard, from Keene to west of Steptoe.

In addition, the intersection of Gage Boulevard and Keene Road will be refigured and restriped to include a bicycle lane. Motorists are encouraged to use extra caution and be aware of this new configuration.

Travel lanes will be reduced again during the surface treatment application including brief (10-15 minute) partial intersection closures.

At all times, please use caution, allow extra time for travel, and obey traffic signs and flaggers. If possible, use an alternative route during the week of the microsurfacing.

Microsurfacing is a mixture of fine aggregate, emulsified asphalt, and chemical additives. This preventative maintenance extends the life of existing asphalt while sealing it from the harmful effects of water penetration and the sun.
