Traffic moved slower than the 15-mph speed limit on North Santa Cruz Avenue Tuesday afternoon as slurry had been applied to the southbound lane.
The fresh black mixture was dumped on the busy thoroughfare from Village/Petticoat Lane to Bachman Avenue and then continuing all the way to Main Street.
Signs alerted drivers to go around orange cones from 5 a.m. to 5 a.m. Tuesday, Aug. 20 for the street resurfacing project.
The avenue's northbound lane has already been slurried by the look and feel of the road.
Property owners and merchants
along the avenue and on West Main Street and University
Avenue have received notices that the town began the slurry seal and re-striping project on Aug. 12.
The slurry seal
application on West Main Street goes from the Highway 17 bridge to Bayview
Avenue. The University Avenue application extends from Main Street to Highway 9 and the Santa Cruz Avenue portion begins on Main Street to Highway 9.
