The City of Bartow will begin the Street Paving Project this Monday, October 22, 2018.

Tucker Paving INC. has been hired to pave your street and other streets in this area.  Please be aware of the following:



During paving operations, traffic will be routed around the work area.  Please pay attention to flagmen, signs, and barricades – drive slowly – and stay alert.


Paving equipment may be parked overnight in your neighborhood.  Please do not allow children to play on or around this equipment.



Sometimes a portion of existing asphalt will be removed before new asphalt is installed.  This may leave gutters and manholes temporarily higher than the adjacent surface – be aware of these “bumps” when walking or driving.


Sometimes a hot black sticky substance will be sprayed on the road prior to paving.  Do not walk or drive through this material.   It is very hard to clean and will “track” everywhere you go.  Check your shoes before entering your house or car if you think you have stepped in this sticky liquid.




Do not park cars on the street during the date(s) of work.


Any garbage /recycle collections affected by the paving process will be picked up the following day.



Once paving operations take place in front of your house, you will not be able to move cars from or into your driveway until the paving crew says OK. This could be for an hour or two.


When driving on newly installed asphalt, please turn your wheels gently and avoid quick starts or stops.  The surface of the asphalt takes several days to attain its full hardness.




Do not run sprinkler systems during the day until the asphalt paving is completed in front of your house.
