Through Friday, March 22, APAC Shears of Salina will be sealing cracks on the following Salina streets, weather permitting:

Residents will be asked to remove their cars from streets to facilitate the work, which will take place generally between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Access to properties within work zones will be maintained at all
times. “Road Work Ahead” signs will be placed in advance of work zones, and temporary single-lane closures are to be expected. Motorists are asked to proceed with caution when approaching work zones for the safety of the crews performing the work.

The annual crack and joint sealing program is an important and costeffective preventive maintenance component of the City of Salina’s annual street repair program. Crack sealing the pavement helps prevent
water from penetrating into the pavement structure or sub-base material and aids in reducing a number of pavement problems which include: crack spreading; formation of voids under pavement; swelling and shrinking of sub-base materials; freeze-thaw action; alligator cracking;
potholing; and complete failure. Because of its importance and cost effectiveness, the Department of Public Works strives to seal each asphalt street in Salina no less often than every seven years. Nearly 26 centerline miles of streets will be sealed in 2019.

The $319,000 project is a major component of the City of Salina's $4.7 million 2019 maintenance capital improvement program.

When are we going to see these streets fixed instead of being sealing them. the tax collected was to fix not patch them up

When are the manholes goin to be raised on ohio, crawford and others they are horrible??

Sealing done by APAC Shears of HUTCHINSON. (With a division office in Salina) But profits going to Hutchinson.

What department does the post office parking lot fall under? Bc those pot holes try to eat my car everyday. Killing my tires!

What does one have to do with the other? Maybe you should have built it in another place? Like the un-used ball fields behind Sunset Park?

Beginning Tuesday, March 19 Hutton Corporation (formerly Busboom & Rauh) will be closing Mulberry Street for work on the new Homewood Suites hotel. Traffic will not be able to go east on Mulberry at the 5th Street intersection and west through the Santa Fe intersection:

Flood Warning!

Heavy Rain is expected to begin tonight and last through until Wednesday night. With 1.5 – 2” of rain expected on top of the already saturated and thawing grounds, the potential for flooding is certainly possible!

Flood Warnings have been issued for the Smoky Hill River near Mentor and New Cambria as well as Mulberry Creek near Salina.

Attached are the latest river graphics that show the potential of flooding. Please remember that these graphs and projections are preliminary and will be dependent on the amount of rain that we receive!

Regardless, we do ask that residents remain weather aware and pay attention to the forecast as we move through the next few days. Do not drive through flooded roadways – Turn Around, Don’t Drown.
