Area South of Casa Grande to Benefit from Road Improvement Projects

FLORENCE – County crews are preparing to apply chip seal to two roads south of Casa Grande. The road resurfacing work is anticipated to last from Monday, June 10 to Thursday, June 20.

A protective rock and emulsion seal will be applied on the road surface to extend the life of the roads. The application of this material is highly weather-dependent with ideal conditions taking place in the spring and fall.

This pavement preservation project will include a combined total of 50,000 square yards of material used that includes 203 tons of emulsion and 1,828 tons of aggregate rock. Cactus Asphalt will be performing the work under a contract with Pinal County

The areas to receive the treatment include:
Thornton Road beginning at Hanna Road and ending at Shedd Road
Shedd Road beginning at Thornton Road and ending at Chuichu Road
Public Works crews ask local area residents to watch for heavy maintenance equipment and crews working throughout the project area. Motorists are urged to exercise extra caution, play close attention to warning signs and the instructions of workers in the area.
