The City of Takoma Park will begin street resurfacing this week, according to a City news alert. Work will begin Thursday, June 10, and continue over the next two weeks, weather permitting.
“Flyers will be delivered to all properties on the affected streets with more detailed information and likely work dates,” the news alert reads. “The milling (scraping two inches of old asphalt) will take place first and the resurfacing will follow 5 to 7 days later. The streets will be posted with ‘No Parking’ signs prior to the work dates.”
According to the City, work will take place in the following order:
- New York Avenue: from Takoma Avenue to Baltimore Avenue
- Baltimore Avenue: from New York Avenue to Philadelphia Avenue
- Birch Avenue: from Cedar Avenue to Barclay Avenue
- Maple Avenue: from Philadelphia Avenue to Maplewood Avenue
- Maplewood Avenue: from Maple Avenue to Flower Avenue
Work will be performed between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m., and access to the street will be limited or blocked during milling and completely blocked during paving. No parking will be allowed on the streets during work, but parking can resume after 5 p.m. so long vehicles are moved before work resumes at 7 a.m. Speed humps and street markings will be reinstalled a week or so after the paving is completed.
Residents that have critical, scheduled events (dialysis appointments, medical transport, appliance delivery, or household move), should contact Public Works at (301) 891-7611.
