Road crews prepare asphalt for summer work on Main in Moscow

Moscow, ID - Starting Tuesday and in preparation for the Main Street grind and inlay project later this summer, water and street department crews will be performing utility repairs on Main, between 6th and "A" street.

The project will consist of milling the top two inches of the existing asphalt in the travel lanes only, sealing any existing cracks, and replacing the two inches of asphalt. The project will be followed by a slurry seal applied to the full width of Main street, including the parking lanes.

Officials said the base project will run from 6th street to 3rd street, with additional alternatives extending the project, north to 2nd or "A" street, depending on bids received.

Main street will remain open to traffic during this work, which will last all week, but isolated parking areas will be periodically affected.
