City Street Paving Underway
Posted on: 10/25/2012
By  Mike Cullums
The annual Marietta city streets asphalt paving project is underway, as many motorists noticed yesterday.
Contract crews made a lot of progress the first day, milling a four-lane section of Gilman Avenue between Slaughterhouse Hill and the Route 7 Washington Street Bridge. That part of Gilman will be paved thicker than normal to help level out past settling of the street base.
The busy intersection of Washington and Second streets on the east end of the bridge was milled down as well. One lane will be kept open on Washington, but e xpect lengthy delays when the crews return with blacktop. (WMOA will endeavor to alert listeners when the paving is underway.) 

Some other streets to be paved include Bartlett and Bellevue on here on Harmar Hill, sections of Butler Street, Eighth Street, Colegate Drive as well as several secondary streets around town.  No-parking signs will be posted in parking zones 48 hours before paving is scheduled to begin. The city engineer's office hopes the contractor will have everything done by the 31st.
