sharon Avenue repaving

As you have probably noticed, Sharon Avenue has been completely ground down as the first phase of the Sharon Avenue Repaving Project wraps up. Jurgensen’s milling machines milled up the old pavement on top to reveal the road base of Sharon Avenue, which is in better shape than we anticipated – good news for the budget for this project since more costly repairs to the road base are not required.

Next, Jurgensen will apply a layer of new asphalt to Sharon Avenue, smoothing transitions between connecting streets and driveways, as well as filling dips and divots that were present before. This also includes work to better level the transition at the newly installed bridge at Sharon Avenue and Little Creek Lane.

After the new pavement is poured and smoothed, Jurgensen will apply new thermoplastic street lines from Chester to Rt. 4. These lines are brighter, easier to see and last longer than painted lines. This also includes markings like crosswalks and parking areas.

With the new markings, the Village is adding some additional parking spaces across the street from Town Hall. These new spaces will expand available parking for events and meetings, and include a total of 14 spots in front of the Veterans’ Memorial and 2 handicap spots.
