Annual Street Resurfacing to Begin - UPDATED

The City of Oxford’s annual Street Resurfacing program will begin in the 2018 construction season.  

Barrett Paving Materials, Inc. won the 2017 competitive bid for the project.  Necessary curb, gutter, sidewalk, and driveway apron work has been completed ahead of this start date.  City streets to be resurfaced include:  Locust Street from Chestnut Street to Spring Street, Locust Street from Church Street to Sycamore Street, Sycamore Street from Locust Street to Main Street, Linden Drive from Main Street to Poplar Street, East Rose Avenue from Main Street to Poplar Street, Walnut Street from Elm Street to Main Street, Arrowhead Drive, and Chestnut Street from Arrowhead to Oak St.

Milling work is scheduled to begin on Wednesday, July 18, 2018.  No parking signs will be posted by the contractor in project areas.

CHESTNUT STREET WILL BE CLOSED from the railroad crossing to Maple Street on Saturday, July 21, 2018 for base repair and resurfacing. A detour will be posted.  Vehicular access to Arrowhead Drive and Acorn Circle may be impeded for a period of time.  Please plan accordingly.


Traffic will be maintained, where possible, throughout the resurfacing project.  Delays can be expected so allow extra time to reach your destination.  Motorists should obey construction traffic signs and flaggers.
