The Town of Paradise Valley’s Annual Pavement Preservation project will begin September 6, 2022 and run through end of October. Public Works will be doing a full width mill, and inch and half asphalt overlay in various locations in Town. Visit the project website to view area maps and road construction schedules for McDonald Drive, Jackrabbit Road, Stone Canyon, and maintenance Section 1.
The McDonald Drive project will begin September 19th. Expect lane closures and detours. Click here to download the detour routes.
What Exactly is Being Done?
- Milling – grinding and cutting an inch and half of the existing asphalt, full width of the roadway and at intersections to match existing asphalt grades. While the milling equipment is passing in front of your home you will not have access for approximately fifteen to twenty minutes. The street will not be closed during this process. All vehicles must be off the street during the day. We will attach door hangers 72 hours prior to construction taking place on your street and place “No On Street Parking” signs the day before construction takes place on your street.
- Application of New Asphalt – 1st step is to apply a coat of tack oil, then lay an inch and half new asphalt to the surface of the roadway and compact it by rolling the surface. The street will be done in two phases, one side of the street will be done at a time. Access will be limited while the new pavement cures and/or machinery is around your residence. Access will only be allowed for extreme emergencies. All vehicles must be off the street during the day. We will attach door hangers 72 hours prior to construction taking place on your street and place “No On Street Parking” signs the day before construction takes place on your street.
- Utility adjustments – this involves cutting the new asphalt that is around a manhole cover or valve, raising the manholes or valve covers to the new surface height, and then filling around them with black colored concrete. Areas will be barricaded off to protect the concrete until it cures. You will be able to access your residence during this procedure. Use caution driving around the barricaded areas.
