Road work

Road projects on tap.

Pothole paving season begins Monday as the Town of Jackson and Evans Construction start patching roads, from now until October, weather permitting.

Motorists should anticipate lane closures throughout town and be alert for traffic flaggers. Patching work could trigger temporary closures for street parking.

The work will involve grinding existing pavement at patch locations, removing asphalt and re-paving various spots throughout town.

Due to the need to move around equipment, it might take up to three days between pavement grinding and final patching, town officials warned in a news release.

“Please be aware of, and obey all construction notification signage, and parking restriction signage as it is there for your safety and the safety of the construction workers,” the news release states.

This could be a good time to bike or walk since town officials announced that the patching will not impede bicycle or pedestrian traffic.
