The City of Newburgh is pleased to announce the beginning of its 2021 paving season.
The start of the 2021 paving season was underway Thursday, June 10. Over the course of the last weeks, DPW crews concluded milling the five streets as part of the first paving phase for 2021. Signs posted throughout neighborhoods where paving was undergoing; instructed residents of temporary parking regulations, which will remain in place until paving concludes.
Sections of roads scheduled for paving are Sherman Drive, Flemming Drive, Morningside Road, Pleasant Place, and Circle Drive. Visit the City of Newburgh webpage for a copy of the Five-Year Paving Plan.
The City successfully undertook two rounds of paving in 2020, despite initial delays due to COVID-19 restrictions. The City’s comprehensive paving plan accounts for resurfacing nearly 50 streets across the City per the 5-year paving plan unveiled in 2020.
Phase one of paving work for 2021 is on schedule and projected to complete on Friday, June 11. As part of the paving process, crews will conduct repair work simultaneously with paving operations.
Infrastructure maintenance for phase two of paving work scheduled for the Fall of 2021 will begin, weather permitting, the week of June 14. The process starts by ensuring curb ramps at intersections are ADA compliant. Oftentimes, considerable work is needed to meet compliance. Once the pedestrian ramps are finished, the City can mill the roads and remove the top layer of asphalt so that the surface can be prepped for the final stage of paving, which is often just as labor-intensive as the ADA curb work.
