(COLUMBIA, MO) ~ Columbia, MO - Lionmark Contracting, the contractor for the City of Columbia Public Works department, has announced plans to begin pavement maintenance on 29 city streets starting Monday, May 20 at 7 a.m., weather permitting.

The contractor will be using Onyx surface treatment, a specialized asphalt solution designed to extend the life of Columbia's streets. This mixture includes liquid asphalt, fine aggregates, recycled products and bonding agents.

According to Lionmark Contracting, their trucks are capable of treating up to 12,000 square yards of roadway per day with Onyx surface treatment. The daily street maintenance schedule has been carefully planned based on the capacity of these trucks and taking into account individual street length and width.

Work is scheduled to take place from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. In order to ensure smooth operations, "No parking" signs will be posted at least 24 hours in advance on streets that are planned for treatment. Signs have already been posted for the streets scheduled for May 20-21 and residents are advised not to park their vehicles on these streets during working hours.

While crews may work Saturdays if needed, they will not be working on Sundays or major holidays such as Memorial Day. Temporary lane closures will be necessary until the product is fully absorbed into the asphalt. To assist motorists through work zones, traffic control signs and flaggers will be present as needed. Motorists and pedestrians are urged to use caution in these areas and find alternate routes if possible.

The contractor expects all listed streets to be treated by Saturday, June 1 at 5 p.m., weather permitting. The first two days (May 20-21) will see treatments on Apple Tree Court, Apple Tree Lane, Cedar Ridge Drive, Dustin Drive, Maple Grove Way, North Cedar Lake Drive, South Cedar Lake Drive and Thornridge Drive.

Days three through five will see treatments on Southland Drive, Bushnell Drive, Bluff Boulevard, Shepard Boulevard and Audubon Drive. On day six, Gene Drive, Shingo Court, Yoko Court and North Pineview Drive will be treated.
