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.
