Street sealing to begin June 4


The City of Garden City will begin sealing streets at 6 a.m. Thursday starting on North Johns Street.

The City will release notices to residents affected by the street sealing starting Wednesday. Once citizens receive notices, their vehicles and/or trailers must be removed from the street by 6 a.m. the day of the sealing, or the vehicles will be towed at the owner’s expense.

To avoid overspray of oil on vehicles, the City recommends residents pull their vehicles and/or trailers as close as possible to their property. Traffic on affected streets will cease until gravel has been placed over the oil. Residents must make sure all sprinklers are turned off during this process.

The schedule of street sealing will proceed as follows:

• North Johns Street between Mary and Emerson streets
• Emerson Street between Taylor Avenue and Eighth Street
• South of Emerson to the drainage ditch between Eighth and 11th streets
• Emerson Street north to Mary Street between Third and Eighth streets
• Emerson Street south to drainage ditch between Third and Eighth streets
• Drainage ditch south to Kansas Avenue between Taylor Avenue and Eighth Street
• Drainage ditch south to Kansas Avenue between Third and Eighth streets

The City urges motorists to drive cautiously on sealed streets until the removal of excess material. Also, the City asks motorists to drive outside of wheel tracks if possible. Liquid asphalt sticks to shoes and tires making it difficult to remove. Please keep children and pets away from the streets during this time.

The process of street sealing is as follows: the City sweeps the street, and then the distributor truck places oil on the street. A spreader box follows the distributor truck to spread a coating of gravel over the oil. Afterward, a rubber tire-roller goes over the gravel to set it in place. Once the gravel has been laid, residents may park in the street, and traffic resumes as normal. The gravel remains on the street for several weeks to cure. Once it’s cured, the City sweeps the excess gravel away.
