[May 21, 2014]LINCOLN - Starting this week
contractors will be working in many different areas in Lincoln as
this yearís pulverizing and seal coat project gets underway.
The construction will begin in these areas first and crews will
be putting out no parking signs in advance of the work starting.
Williamette Ave from Sheridan St. to Home Ave.
Sherman St. from Willard to Wyatt Ave And from Lincoln Ave to
Sheridan St. from Wyatt Ave to Decatur St.
Butler St. From Wyatt Ave to Decatur St. and from Pulaski St. to
Elliott St. from Pekin St. to Tremont St.
Pekin St. from Elliott St. to Foley St.
Lincoln Ave from Logan St. to Kankakee St
Davenport St From McLean St. to Kickapoo St.
Hamilton St. north of Davenport St.
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
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
If you have any questions please contact the Lincoln Street
Department at 217-732-4655
