ROAD WORK AHEAD: Street dept. ready for summer work

May 21, 2013

COLUMBIA CITY — Although the actual first day of summer is more than a month away, Columbia City’s Street Department is gearing up for summer projects.

Among the projects is crack sealing. Street Department Superintendent Kelly Cearbaugh said during the winter, cracks appear in the pavement and summer is the time to fix them.

“We usually have a company come in and use fiberized crack seal,” he said. “They blow out the cracks and get the sand and debris out first. It just preserves the street that much longer, it’s part of pavement preservation.”

Pavement Solutions won the contract bid at a cost of $34,060. Cearbaugh added streets should still be open during the project.
