Paving Project to Begin July 21 on Woodmont Boulevard

Metro Public Works will begin the preparation, milling and paving of Woodmont Boulevard from Valley Brook Road to Harding Pike Monday, July 21. The milling work, the nosiest part of the paving process, will be completed in the daytime and mostly on Saturday and Sunday mornings, July 26 and 27. Remaining milling work on Monday, July 28 will not begin until after peak morning traffic has ended Monday morning. Paving work will be done at night and the process is predicted to be much quicker with less traffic. Public Works Paving and Right-Of-Way Manager, Don Reid has been in discussion with many of the residents in the area to ensure the least disruption to the neighborhood as possible.

The Woodmont Boulevard paving project is more involved than other paving projects because the road is older and was originally constructed of concrete. Concrete roads are expensive to maintain, and when the road breaks, as opposed to a patch, the whole concrete slab needs to be replaced. Crews will be using a material called FiberMat to pave the road. FiberMat is a crack preventing and sealing layer that bonds well to both concrete and asphalt. It is used with much effectiveness in the resurfacing of concrete roads.
