NEWS RELEASE ISSUED OCTOBER 3, 2013 BY THE CITY OF PITTSBURG

Due to equipment failure the milling of Joplin Street from 4th Street to 6th Street and from 8th Street to 20th Street has been extended and will be completed this weekend, Saturday October 5, 2013 and Sunday October 6, 2013. Crews will be working to finish the milling of side street intersections along Joplin Street. We are asking residents not to park on Joplin or within 200 feet of any intersection along Joplin Street. Monday morning, October 7, 2013, the contractor is scheduled to begin the asphalt overlay of Joplin Street. Sections of Joplin Street will be closed during this overlay process. The overlay of Joplin Street is expected to be complete on Friday, October 11, 2013.  Motorists are urged to use an alternate route while the work is ongoing.

Crews will begin milling on Walnut Street from 3rd Street to Quincy the week of October 7, 2013. Side streets off Walnut Street may be temporarily closed as construction moves through the intersections. To avoid any delays motorists are urged to avoid these areas if possible. If it is necessary to travel these streets, please drive slow and observe the work zone signs.

In addition, The City of Pittsburg is asking residents in these areas not to park along these streets. These areas will be repaved as part of the Street Sales Tax Program.
