UPDATE (09/22/2022): Allen Township has received confirmation from the contractor, Asphalt Maintenance Solutions (AMS), that they are on schedule to start the Chip Seal portion of the work on Monday, September 26th, 2022, beginning with Country Road. AMS plans to notify residents on Saturday, September 24th, 2022, by utilizing door tags and by placing “No Parking” signs out.
Beginning on Monday, September 26th, 2022 (with a rain date of Tuesday, September 27th, 2022) between the hours of 6:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. (weather permitting), several roadways located in Allen Township are scheduled to receive the first phase of a two-step road maintenance process called Type II Slurry Seal. Some additional minor preparation work will occur during the week of September 19th, 2022. Door hangers and signage will be placed by the Township’s contractor, Asphalt Maintenance Solutions LLC during the preparation work beginning on September 21st, 2022.
The initial work will begin on Monday, September 26th, 2022 and the final slurry seal process will begin on Thursday, September 29th, 2022. Both dates may be modified slightly due to weather circumstances.
The Type II Slurry Seal will be applied to the following roadways and travel will be impacted during this timeline:
- * Country Road
- * Phyllese Drive
- * Buckingham Drive
- * Windsor Drive
- * Atlas Lane
- * Kingston Drive
- * Barbara Lane
The first process is called Bituminous Seal Coat which is a preventative maintenance process designed to preserve your street by sealing out water. Do not be alarmed, any loose stone will be minimal and will be swept with a vacuum street sweeper. On Thursday, September 29th, 2022, (with a rain date of Friday, September 30th, 2022), the second process, called a Slurry Seal, will be applied. The Slurry Seal will serve as a final wearing surface.
During both phases of the project, there will be NO ON-STREET PARKING
. Should you have an emergency or special situation, please let us know and we will work with you to meet that need. ADDITIONALLY, PLEASE PLAN ACCORDINGLY AS THERE MAY BE SEVERAL INTERVALS DURING THIS PROCESS WHERE DRIVING OVER THE SURFACE WILL BE PROHIBITED.
Please use care when driving on the freshly sealed roads and be mindful of construction vehicles, flaggers and any special traffic signage in place during this project.
