[August 17, 2019]
The 2019 city of Lincoln Scarification and Oil and chip project will
get underway beginning Tuesday August 20, 2019. Please be on the
lookout for temporary no parking signs in your area and please do
not park in the areas posted with these signs.
The contractor will start with the streets that are going to be
scarified, once this is complete the street will be regraded and
compacted. These streets will not be resurfaced immediately, so
residents should avoid driving on them if at all possible. If they
do, we recommend not exceeding 10 mph on these streets.
A primer oil will be applied 18 to 24 hours before these streets are
resurfaced and we highly recommend residents do not drive on these
areas unless absolutely necessary. If it is unavoidable, we
recommend not exceeding 5 mph. It would be very likely that oil will
transfer from tires to the vehicle and it may also track onto other
surfaces such as driveways and sidewalks.

A base coat of rock will be applied and then a second surface coat will be
applied to these streets and the other streets just receiving a standard oil and
chip. These are weather sensitive operation so any rain could change the
Streets will remain open unless crews are actively working. If anyone decides to
drive on this oil, they do so at their own risk.
The City or contractors will not be responsible for any damage caused by doing
As always it is recommended that motorist and pedestrians alike avoid these
areas if possible. If you must travel in these areas please use extreme caution.
