Rolla's Public Works Dept. begins micro surfacing City Streets

   The City of Rolla Public Works Department will begin asphalt micro-surfacing on several City streets beginning Monday, July 18. The area will include all streets in Rolla south of 10th Street to Missouri Highway 72, and east of Forum Drive and Pinetree Road. It will also include the Johnson/Laird sub division. 
  This micro surfacing project is being completed by Donelson Construction Company. It is a quick set surfacing system that will provide an approximate one-quarter-inch-thick pavement resurfacing. Micro surfacing is an economical alternative to hot asphalt mix overlays, which typically applies a minimum of two inches of pavement resurfacing.
    A complete list of streets that are scheduled for micro-surfacing in Rolla will be listed on the City of Rolla’s Website at
   While this work may take several days to complete, streets that are being sealed will remain open with temporary one-lane traffic established. Flagmen will be present to direct traffic, and motorists and pedestrians are urged to remain cautious when traveling through the areas of work. Delays up to 20 minutes should be expected.
   For more information, please call the Public Works Department at (573) 364-8659.
