The city of Maitland Public Works Department is implementing a road-resurfacing project to mill and repave select roads throughout the city.
A contractor will perform all roadwork during business hours from Monday, Aug. 19, through Friday, Aug. 29, excluding weekends.
The contractor, Middlesex Co., will provide notices to residents, place variable message boards, and execute a maintenance-of-traffic plan.
Throughout the process, lane closures are expected. Road closures are not anticipated at this time; however, if road closures become necessary, a detour will be set up with appropriate signage.
The following roads will be resurfaced from Aug. 19 through Aug. 22 (subject to change due to weather):
1) Geronimo Trail (from Thistle Lane to Mohican Trail)
2) Native Court (from Tuscarora Trail to Cul-de-Sac)

8) Saginaw Trail (from Thunder Trail to Kewannee Trail)
