Sierra Vista City streets crews will conduct crack sealing in the neighborhood bordered to the North by Paseo Las Palmas and to the South by Foothills Drive and Snyder Boulevard starting Monday, Jan. 9. (see map below) The project is scheduled to be completed by Monday, March 6.

Residents are asked not to park on the street during work hours until maintenance on their street has been completed so crews can access the full roadway. Workers will be present between 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. on weekdays.

For more information, call the Sierra Vista Public Works Department at 520-458-5775 and ask for Streets Supervisor Jeff Faglie.

Crack sealing is done to keep moisture from getting into or under the road helping them last longer. This kind of maintenance helps prevent larger and more costly maintenance or replacements projects in the future. This also helps save money as bigger projects cost more. How long should a road and pavement last?  Roads and parking lots can usually get 20 years out of them, again sealing them is a way to extend the life and save money.

The Federal Highway Administration provides maintenance on all Highways , bridges and  tunnels. The Arizona department of transportation maintains state roads, including off ramps and other roads. The Cochise County Highway Division is responsible for County roads. The Public Works Department of Sierra Vista is responsible for city streets and roads. This department also oversees refuse, wastewater, parks and paths. The Sierra Vista Public Works Department is always there to make Sierra Vista a better place. They are the behind the scenes hero's that make our local community awesome.

Thank you Sierra Vista Public Works Department.
