Harsh winter weather taking toll on streets

The frigid weather and constant thawing during the winter can lead to damaging cracks on roadways.  Asphalt can contract in very cold temperatures resulting in cracks.  Sturgeon Bay City Engineer Chad Shefchik says a severe winter can lower the life expectancy of pavement. 



Shefchik says the City of Sturgeon Bay just opened its first round of bids for road projects for next year including reconstruction projects with Sturgeon Bay Utilities.  With the favorable bids, Shefchik adds that he will push for approval on the proposed work on Georgia Street, Third Avenue, and Kendale Court at the upcoming Public Works committee meeting.
