Crews to repave Deacon Drive

Construction crews are scheduled to begin next week repaving Deacon Drive from Longmire Drive to Rio Grande Boulevard.

Knife River Corp. is contracted for the job, which starts Aug. 7. The work, estimated to cost about $128,000, will take about four days to complete.

Gary Balmain, College Station's superintendent of streets and drainage, said the repaving is the final component of a street reconstruction project.

"When the material under the asphalt is leaking out and causing the asphalt to fail, you have to remove it, along with the base material underneath it," he said. "We've done that, and now we're coming back with a hot mix overlay and smoothing over the repairs."

Deacon Drive will not be completely closed, but access may be limited and detours could be set up, Balmain said.

Drivers are asked to slow down in the area.
