Peterborough, ON – Pavement preservation, including surface paving, micro-surface treatments, and crack sealing, will take place as part of the City of Peterborough’s annual road work program. Work begins mid-May, and all work is anticipated to be complete by November 2022.

Repaving and micro-surfacing

Using condition rating information, City staff have identified 10 of the highest priority streets that require pavement preservation treatments in 2022.

Seven roads will receive new surface asphalt paving:

  • Fairbairn Street between Wolsely and Hillside streets
  • Ford Street between Chamberlain and Lansdowne streets
  • Langton Street between Hilliard and Water streets
  • Lansdowne Street West between Monaghan Road and Park Street South
  • Monaghan Road between Edison Avenue and Riverside Drive
  • Sherbrooke Street between Bethune and Reid streets
  • Woodglade Boulevard between Glenforest and Kawartha Heights boulevards

Two roads will receive full-depth asphalt pavement structures:

  • Parkhill Road East between Television Road and the Trent Canal
  • Television Road between Parkhill Road and the CP Rail tracks

Micro-surface treatment will be completed on Milroy Drive between Chemong Road and Towerhill Road.

Grinding and paving operations along Fairbairn Street, Lansdowne Street West and Sherbrooke Street will be conducted under road closure at night between 9 p.m. and 7 a.m. to reduce the impact on traffic. Grinding and paving operations along Monaghan Road and Woodglade Boulevard will be conducted under road closures during July and August to coordinate with reduced activity at nearby schools during the summer. Parkhill Road East and Television Road pulverizing, grading and paving operations will require a single-lane closure with flagging operations for a duration of an estimated five days for each side of the road.

The work is being done by Coco Paving Inc. on behalf of the City.

Pavement crack sealing

Pavement crack sealing will take place at various locations across the City. Pavement crack sealing helps to extend the life of the road by preventing infiltration of water into the asphalt pavement surface and the structure below the road.

This work is being done by Fine Line Markings Inc. on behalf of the City.

No road closures are expected during the pavement crack sealing; however, all locations will experience short delays with flagging operations, lane reductions and potentially shifting traffic lanes where required.

Schedules for both pavement preservation work and crack sealing may change due to delays or inclement weather.
