The City of Jerseyville Street Department, in combination with a private contractor, is scheduled to complete our annual oil & chip seal program on Monday and Tuesday, September 28 and 29, weather-permitting. The following streets are scheduled for the 2020 program: Shipman, Adams, Dorothy, McBride, Curtis, Sherman, Sheridan, Hazel, Marion, Kirby, Osage, East Spruce (June to city limit), Fidelity (June to city limit), as well as the City Park (Park Place and Diamond Way), the Wock Lake entrance/parking lot, the Blackorby Fields parking lot, and the City Cemetery (all interior roadways).
No parking will be allowed on the streets from 7:00AM to 6:00PM, and residents in these areas will experience short-term street closures, traffic/biking/walking delays, blocked driveways, and potential garbage collection delays. Access will be provided in the event of emergencies only. The contractor will be installing a layer of oil and a layer of small rock. There will be short-term dust and some loose rock on the street after placement, which the City will sweep-up at a later date on an as-needed basis. Thank you for your cooperation and patience as we complete these important improvements within our street system, in your neighborhood.
