Columbus officials say that contractors will begin work on the city streets’ crack sealing project on Monday. Crack sealing consists of cleaning, preparing and sealing pavement joints and random pavement cracks on selected streets throughout the city. Officials say that sealing cracks in city streets increases pavement life, allowing a longer time between more intense street maintenance, therefore saving money.

City officials say that, weather permitting, the crack sealing project is expected to be complete by the end of May. You are encouraged to plan alternate routes around the work whenever possible. Flagmen will be directing traffic. The city’s Engineering Department says that affected streets will be posted with signs reading “No Parking ” 24 hours before work begins in that area.

Areas scheduled for crack seal work include:
Crump Estates
Skyview
Presidential Parks
Princeton Parks/Airport/Flatrock Park North
Shadow Creek Farms
Wildflower Estates
Terrace Woods
Champion Drive, Waterside, Westlake Park & Heron Cove in Tipton Lakes
