Negaunee – 2021 Street maintenance should be done fairly quickly in Negaunee this year.
The city hired a contractor to complete crack sealing on portions of a dozen streets. City manager Nate Heffron said the crack sealing keeps moisture out of the streets. Water in cracks in asphalt can cause damage when the ground freezes and then thaws again.
Filling the cracks extends the useful life of the street, he said.
The 6.7 miles of crack sealing will take place in the next two weeks. The cost of the project is just over $45,000.
Heffron said street repair projects are smaller this year than last year.
“We want to wait before we begin any major projects until we determine what finances will be needed to help pay for the proposed of water/sewer project, which includes 5.21 miles of street surface paving,” Heffron said.
