Crews will begin pulverizing area streets as early as Tuesday May
There are a few steps to this process that you should be aware
of. Streets will remain open unless crews are actively working on
them but residents should avoid driving on the roads if at all
possible to prevent damage to the surface before the seal coat is
If you have to drive on these areas please donít exceed 10 MPH.
Shortly after a street is pulverized it will be sprayed with an
oil that will be exposed for 18 to 24 hours. Again we highly
recommend not driving on these areas unless absolutely necessary and
if you do we highly recommend not exceeding 5 MPH. It will be very
likely that the oil will transfer from tires to the vehicle and it
may track on to other surfaces such as driveways and sidewalks.
If anyone decides to drive on this oil they do so at their own
risk and the city or the contractors will not be responsible for any
damage caused by driving on this oil.

We will try to keep everyone up to date on the schedule of
areas to be done as it is made available to use. The crews will
also be posting sign in areas making residents aware when work
will begin in their area.
If you have any questions please contact the Lincoln Street
Department at 217-732-4655
