               City of Ralston Mill & Overlay 2018

UPDATE (October 19, 2018) 

The concrete base repairs will start in Wildewood on October 18, 2018 and then move into the downtown area and the other milled areas.  Most of the concrete base repairs will be on the South side of the downtown area.  Only parking stalls around the repair areas will be affected.

The milling machine will be back in Ralston on Saturday, October 20, 2018, to start the milling of the "Main drag" from 82nd Street to 77th Street.

The estimated date for asphalting to start is October 25, 2018.  A majority of the base repair needs to be completed before the asphalt lay-down crew can start.  This may cause a day or so delay to the estimated start date, weather permitting.

Thank you for your patience.


Dates:  October 1st - 10th                   Time:   7:30 AM to 7:00 PM

The City of Ralston is committed to working with you to help you through the construction period of the City of Ralston Mill & Overlay 2018 project.  Every effort will be made to minimize any inconvenience to you.  It is anticipated that the construction will last 10 calendar days, but the schedule is subject to change depending on weather conditions and other conditions out of the contractor's control.  During the milling process, one lane of traffic will be available with the assistance of flaggers. 

During the overlaying procedure, both lanes of the roadway will be closed for a period of time.  "No parking" signs will be posted the night before the affected areas are closed.  If you would like to ensure that your vehicle will be out of the construction limits, please move your vehicle to an unaffected street before 7:30 AM.  The mail and refuse companies will try to work around the construction and attempt to deliver and collect on the existing scheduled pick up days.


If you have any special handicap needs, please contact us to discuss these needs.  We appreciate your cooperation and understanding while we work to improve our City.
