Road Pavement Maintenance

In order to extend the life of the roadway pavement and minimize future maintenance costs, the Streets and Stormwater Division has scheduled contractor Asphalt Paving Systems to perform pavement maintenance on a number of roads in Largo beginning Monday, August 26, 2019. The affected roads and dates are listed below (Please note that the dates are contingent on weather conditions and contractor delays):

Monday, August 26, 2019
• Madison St
• Britton St
• 13th Ave SW
• 14th Ave SW
• 19th St SW
• 18th St SW 

Tuesday, August 27, 2019
• 21st St SW
• 10th Ave SW
• Lakeside Pl
• Woodland Dr
• Oakwood Dr 

Wednesday, August 28, 2019
• Forest PKWY N
• Forest PKWY E
• Forest PKWY S

Thursday, August 29, 2019
• Imperial Dr
• Corvette Dr
• Coronet Dr
• Fairlane Dr 

This maintenance requires a two-step process. Step one is called Crack Sealing and will be done one lane at a time with minimal disruption to traffic. There may be short periods where individual driveways will not be available. However, these times should be less than 30 minutes in length. This step seals cracks in the pavement and along the edge of patches with a rubberized asphalt material.

Step two is called Micro Paving and is tentatively scheduled to begin sometime after October 1, 2019. Materials will be placed over the existing blacktop surface providing a new, watertight roadway surface. This process extends the life of the existing roadway by both eliminating water intrusion and providing a new driving surface. This step does require road closures and affected residents will be notified through the use of door hangers two weeks before the expected time such closure will occur.
