Roadwork to Begin on Sarah Lane
Beginning on Thursday, July 10th all of Sarah Lane and a portion of Timberlane Drive will receive a new wearing surface (the topmost layer of the road) via a process called 'chip sealing'. The entire length of Sarah Lane will be chip sealed, along with Timberlane Drive between Park Drive and Sarah Lane.
The City will use a single chip seal, which is the application of a binder followed by an aggregate. This is used as a pavement preservation treatment and provides a new skid resistant wearing surface, arrests raveling, and seals minor cracks. The figure below illustrates a single chip seal application.
The process should take about 5-7 working days, weather permitting. The City thanks you in advance for your patience during the maintenance process.
There is a primary election on August 5th, 2014 for all of Sedgwick County. New voter registration cards need to be postmarked before July 15th to vote in this primary.
