The Frisco Public Works Department and third party contractors will be working on paving projects on streets throughout the Town of Frisco starting Thursday, July 21, 2022. This will have an impact on traffic and parking in those areas. All operations and related closures will be signed several days prior. Residents are being asked to plan ahead as these crews perform the necessary work and are thanked in advance for their patience during these days of vital street work.
Mill & Overlay on Avenues
The Town of Frisco Streets Division will be overseeing a mill and overlay operation on Town streets starting July 21, 2022.
The mill and overlay process consists of two major steps:
• Milling (removing) two inches of asphalt on the street surface
• Paving: laying two inches of new of asphalt (overlay) on the street surface
To mill the street, workers use heavy equipment to remove and haul away the old street surface to prepare the surface for new asphalt. After the new asphalt is laid, crews stripe and paint the street for parking spots and crosswalks.
Timing and Affected Areas
The work will take place in the core area of Frisco on the avenues, both north and south of Main Street, including 1st, 2nd, 5th, 6th, and 7th Avenues, from Granite to Galena Streets.
• Milling is expected to begin on Thursday, July 21
• Paving is expected to begin on Monday, August 1
- There will be limited access and parking restrictions on affected Avenues while crews are working
- All-day parking may be most convenient at the dirt lot located on Granite Street and 3rd Avenue.
Slurry Seal on Town Streets, August 4-5, 2022
Slurry seal is an asphalt coating over the top of the existing asphalt that will fill in small cracks and surface imperfections to give the roadway a uniform color and texture and will prolong the life of the asphalt.
- Alpine Drive and Alpine Court
- Aspen Drive
- 9000 Divide
- Emily Lane and Emily Lane Court
- Galena Street
- Lagoon Drive
- Lake Point Circle
- Meadow Creek Drive Pitkin Street
- North 5th Avenue from Galena Alley to Galena St.
- The contractor will slurry seal one direction of the streets the first day and then do the opposing side of the street the following day to minimize traffic restraints.
- Parking will be allowed on the surrounding streets while road closures are in place. Any vehicles within the work area will be towed at the owner’s expense.
- For residents directly affected by these closures, crews will knock on each door to notify residents of impending road closures and give them the option to move their vehicles.
- The affected streets will be able to re-open 3-4 hours after the slurry seal is applied
Any questions related to the milling, paving, and slurry seal projects may be directed to Town of Frisco Streets Department Supervisor, Landon Sengelman.
