A $75,000 job to restore the road surface on the outer portion of Asbury Street in Hamilton is halfway complete, according to DPW Director Dave Hanlon.
The stretch of Asbury
Street undergoing work is 1.4 miles long, from the Topsfield town line to Highland
Street near G & M Motors and Asbury Grove.
In all, the project will last about a month and is broken up into four phases. The first two phases are complete.
The work that's been done so far has included putting down a "structural bituminous concrete overlay" on a .4 mile stretch of the road that was failing, Hanlon said.
The second phase, which was most recently completed, involving laying down a "bituminous modified chip seal" on the rest of the road. The remaining material, which is still on the road, will be swept up this week.
Next week, the third phase will begin when workers crack-seal the road. That work will result in one lane to be closed at time but the entire street will not be closed as it was last week, Hanlon said.
Lastly, a double yellow line will be painted down the middle and a white fog line will be painted down the side of the road.
