Resurfacing set to begin on part of North Depot 

Slurry resurfacing of North Depot Street from West Fesler to West Alvin Avenue will begin Thursday and continue Friday.

Residents in homes on North Depot are advised to park vehicles on a side street during construction hours to avoid inconveniences. All driveways along North Depot Street will be inaccessible during construction until the slurry has cured enough for it to be opened up to traffic.

Souza Construction and its subcontractor, American Asphalt South, under contract with the city of Santa Maria, will begin placement of a slurry seal roadway treatment at the intersection of North Depot Street and North Railroad Avenue and West Fesler Street and to the north up to West Alvin Avenue.

A crew will restripe North Depot Street with the addition of bike lanes in both directions next week.

East McCoy alleyway access to close temporarily

The north side of the alleyway behind the FoodMaxx shopping center on South Broadway will be temporarily closed Wednesday from about 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. to make repairs to a water line.

Crandall Construction, under contract with the city, will repair a city-owned water line connected to a fire hydrant. The repair work will not affect water service.

No vehicles, pedestrians or bicycles will be allowed to turn into the alleyway from East McCoy Lane for the duration of the repair. The south side of the alley, which is accessible from South Broadway, will remain open; however, drivers are encouraged to avoid the alleyway altogether due to its limited turning radius.

Drivers are also encouraged to obey all temporary signs and reduce driving speeds in and around the alleyway closure area.
