First Street paving delayed until next week

The Town of Friday Harbor shares an update about the status of the First Street overlay project.
Asphalt paving on First Street was delayed this week due to weather concerns. The contractor and project engineers determined that this week’s temperatures and general forecast for spotty showers were not ideal paving conditions.
Paving has been rescheduled to Tuesday, May 17 with Wednesday, May 18 and Thursday, May 19 scheduled as alternate dates.
Ideally pavement is installed when both ground and air temperatures are anywhere between 50 and 90 degrees. In our case, anything below 50 can cause defective quality that will have issues down the road. It is just as important that there is no rain on the day of paving, or for a reasonable amount of time afterward, to allow the oily materials to cure properly.
